HOW TO SURVIVE COMMUNITY BATHROOMS IN COLLEGE
How to Use a Communal Kitchen in a Youth Hostel
Label your food.Sounds simple but many guests favour the "trust" factor. Hungry guests who have been tramping all over the ancient ruins or catching stinky public transport all day are not always into trust when their belly rumbles and may simply assume that unlabelled food is a free-for-all. It also helpsyouidentify which of those cartons of milk isyours.
Be sure to use the designated storage spaces.If there are specific rules about which cupboards and which fridge you can store food in, follow these rules. If you don't, you risk having your food removed and dumped.
Cook where it is allowed.Most youth hostels are not that partial to the 'Trangia' being set up in your dorm. Not only is this a potential fire risk but it is also unfair on the other guests to be subjected to your cooking smells.
Cook small.Don't cook so much that you have leftovers to contend withunlessyou have freezer or fridge space and containers to store and you are staying more than one or two nights. If you cannot buy smaller amounts of food, see if other guests are willing to go halves with you in the purchasing costs.
Keep it hygienic.It is even more important to pay attention to food safety rules when using a communal kitchen. Never assume something has been washed before you use it; wash cutting boards in hot water and wash stirring utensils before using. When you cut raw meats, eggs and poultry, always do so on a washable surface away from others and clean upthoroughlyafter yourself. Cross-contamination can be very serious in a communal kitchen.

- Check out food provision in the hostel itself - you might be lucky enough to get a decent meal included in the price of the stay, or for a small amount extra. If so, factor this in by weighing up the cost and time involved in purchasing and preparing your own food.
- Try to avoid purchasing perishable food unless you know that you will be eating all of it that night. This cuts down on the need to store it, to worry about it expiring or wasting a lot of it if you suddenly decide to leave earlier than expected.
- Leave a note on leftover food that you don't want to take with you to let other guests know that they are free to use it.
- Many communal hostel kitchens already have condiments (salt, pepper, jam etc.) freely available; always check before buying.
