29M. I just did a trip around Europe for a month and a half, staying in a mix between hotel and hostels.

I will tell you that 95% of people in every hostel (I stayed in 5 of them) were 23 or younger. I only met three women out of my entire trip that were 30+ in these hostels, but to each their own experience.

Also these kids were so immature, I ended up not hanging with them and just met locals or people on the street to chill with. Had a much better time with them. Just strike a conversation at a coffee shop or bar. However, note it’s the holiday season so your success will vary.

Never. Do it although I’m not sure how many will also be in hostels during that time.

I check reviews on hostelworld before booking. The reviews show the age range of past guests who left a review. If a lot in my age range and overall good ratings, I select that one

I spent a month solo in London last fall. The bar scene is super social and tinder/raya were very active. Had an excellent time and other than the strain on my wallet had zero issues. London is an awesome scene. DM me if you have any questions or need recs

FWIW I was in hotels the whole time. 27M.

Just get a hotel?

You are never too old

I don’t care if I split a bill but for god’s sake, ensure your date gets in a car home. Even if you aren’t calling her again or whatever, wait for the freaking cab with them.
