The main advantage to mixed dorms is getting to meet a wider variety of travelers from around the world, which, of course, is what travel is all about! You will most likely find the person you share your dorm room with to be respectful, quiet, and friendly. Even if most of your friends are of the same sex, travel is about getting out of your comfort zone and trying new things — what better way to do so than by creating a new circle of friends? One advantage of sleeping in mixed dorms is that they are usually cheaper than private rooms. So if you are on a budget, opt for a mixed dorm and you will be able to save some money.
