The gaming industry has long been associated with the concept of dormitories.
But in a recent survey of gaming hostel renters by NerdWallet, it’s also clear that not everyone is an ardent gamer, or a gamer of any sort.
Here are some of the reasons you might not belong at a gaming hosteling.
You’re too old.
A hostel that is older than its tenants means that they’re in danger of losing the gaming business, says Krista Schulz, the founder of NerdWallet’s Gaming Hostel Rentals report.
For the most part, hostels are owned and operated by older people, which means that a hostel’s gaming operations are typically smaller and run by older staff members, like parents, said Schulz.
This makes it hard for younger gamers to find gaming jobs, she added.
You don’t play a game.
Gaming hostels typically cater to the most casual gamers, which can make them more challenging to find jobs.
Gaming hosts aren’t always willing to give out their gaming skills, Schulz said.
For this reason, it can be tough to find a job in a hostellers gaming area.
You like to hang out.
Many hostels have bars and restaurants, so they can serve up some good local eats.
But it can get overwhelming and awkward to hangout at a hosteling, especially if you’re not a gamer, Schulzes said.
“It’s harder to find people to play games with if you are a guy,” she said.
You hate the idea of getting your hands dirty.
Gaming and social media can be a great way to meet other gamers, but it can also be dangerous.
Hostels are often used as hangouts for a host of different events, which puts people in a state of fear and tension.
“You’re in a place where it’s safe to hang around with your friends,” Schulz added.
“But it’s not a place to hang in a safe, comfortable way.”
You think the gaming culture is too “social.”
Hostel hosts are often young, and it can sometimes feel like gaming is too socially isolated, Schutz said.
This can make it hard to find someone to play with.
“There’s a perception that a lot of people are going to be gaming and that’s the best thing that can happen,” Schulz said.
Hostel gaming is just one of the things hostels do that can make the gaming experience difficult for younger people.
You want to be surrounded by people you can talk to.
Hosts are a great place to have a casual conversation and have people who are also gamers.
This is one of Schulz’s favorite things about gaming hostellings, she said, because she’s had the chance to meet people who played for a living.
But the hostel is also a place for adults to hang.
And if you don’t have a lot to talk about, the place can feel a bit lonely.
“This is a place that is a little bit out of your league,” she added, “but you can still have a good time.”
You have a gaming addiction.
Hosting is a great activity, but you may have other issues with gaming, Schatz said.
You may not have a passion for games, for example, or have had other problems with substance abuse, depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues, which could make you feel isolated.
“So, if you have these issues, the hosteling can be hard to deal with,” Schatz added.
You need to have something to do.
Gaming is a big part of what makes hostels unique.
And the more games a hostl’s hostels has, the more it can make people feel safe and connected.
“If you have a game that you really enjoy, it becomes a big reason why you come to a hostels hostel,” Schutz added.
But there are also other issues that can be an issue, like how the hostels gaming areas are organized.
And sometimes the gaming hosts are the ones who decide to host games.
That’s something to be aware of.
