OCD is a very real mental illness that is often downplayed, joked about or stereotyped. My OCD is mild. And I am extremely lucky and thankful for that. But I do still have my own set of rituals that the logical part of my brain says are ridiculous, but the OCD part says that are totally necessary.
You have done it. You have found a beautiful hostel. It is safe and clean, has just the right amount of life – not too much that you get no sleep, but not so little that you feel bored. It is just close enough to the big-ticket items of the area that you can walk, but far enough out that you aren’t paying a ‘tourist tariff’. And the beds are comfortable with no little surprises (*cough* bedbugs *cough*).
