A male backpacker has shocked his room mates by going to bed at 8:05am.
The incident happened at the Tasman Bay Backpackers in Nelson, New Zealand.
The boy, known only as Luke, is from Hemel Hempstead and is believed to be in his late twenties.
Caroline Gough who is sharing a room with Luke said “It was quite unexpected because he had initially seemed so alert and chatty.”
Every evening the hostel invites guests to gather in the dining room to eat free chocolate pudding and ice cream on the understanding that those consuming the chocolate pudding will talk to each other and make new friends for the duration of the pudding eating session rather than stare mindlessly at their phones.
Caroline and her fellow room mates had to tiptoe quietly into the room and fumble about in the darkness to find the things they needed for the rest of the evening.
“Luckily there was a nice living room with a good atmosphere, so we all hung out there,” said Caroline.
Caroline was unable to locate her ear plugs in the dark and consequently had to listen to Luke snoring for the entire night.
