Working in the hostel make your sense of humour very specific. That is the way in which you are not getting mad in the house of already crazy people. Those hostel signs show funny interaction between the staff and the guests.

Funny hostel signs

Sounds strange but some people really need toilet instruction (by cantcomeupwithanything)
This is not that obvious for some people (by georgianewsday)
This sign in The Blocks Hostel in Bangkok does not need more explication (by TripAdvisor)
Digital nomads should take it into consideration (by georgianewsday)
'If your achievements exceeded expectations, please use the brush'. Of course brushes are in the toilets for some reason, and for sure one of them is NOT decoration. Found by me in the toilet of 3city hostel in Gdansk (by dontmesswithreceptionist)
Classic hostel problem: guests do not clean dishes. That is one of the way to fight with it! (by gastrofork)
How to inform guests about the time change? That's the way we did in The River Hostel in Valencia (by tommy.ready)
I don't know how about you but I find it really funny (by bootsnall)

In the world of hostels there are 2 typical guests questions while checking in: 
- do you speak English?
- what is the password for wifi?

I absolutely love this sign in Franz Ferdinand hostel in Sarajevo (Source)

Bus Hostel in Reykjavik knows how to rock! (by budgettraveller)

Guests make my days in the hostel 🙂 Matt good that you let him know- for sure you are good friends! (Source)

Taking someones food in the hostel? Better be careful, especially if you are staying in American Backpackers Hostel in Vancouver (by backpackr)

That is the scandalous part of the hostels.

Staying or working in the hostels means many hilarious situations. It is a place where you can have a great time, laugh a lot and…acquire some (un)necessary skills.

If you see on your journey any funny hostel sign send me a picture!

Have a good one!
