We stayed at a hostel in Capetown that had two separate buildings, one with dorm rooms and another with private doubles. We were staying in a private room but often went over to the other building where the main reception desk was.
One morning we went over to ask a question at the reception and stumbled across a strange site. To the side of the main sitting area was a smaller room with cushioned seating that bordered the walls. There were at least half a dozen passed out bodies sprawled out and hanging off sections of the couches.
We looked over to the girl at the reception desk and asked her what was going on. Apparently a middle aged gentleman had such obnoxious snoring that the entire dorm room had finally got fed up. They decided they would get a better sleep by crashing on the couches.
The funniest thing is that when we later got a look at this gentleman we immediately recognized him. We were at the same hostel with him several weeks earlier along the Garden Route in South Africa. We remember another traveler pointing him out and complaining that his snoring was keeping him awake. He had never heard anything like it and swears it was causing the wall that separated their two rooms to vibrate. It seems this gentleman was making his rounds through South Africa hostels and leaving quite an impression where ever he went! Beware, this snorer may still be on the loose and staying at a hostel near you soon!
