  • How's it going, YouTube?

  • I'm your host, Landon Dowlatsingh and welcome back to another most amazing video.

  • Before we get started, I wanted to remind you guys to hit that notification bell so

  • that you never miss a top 10 video and, stay till the end of this video because I will

  • be responding to a bunch of your questions.

  • Alright, so a hostel is an inexpensive alternative to a hotel or motel that offers affordable

  • food and lodging for a group of people.

  • A lot of students, workers or travelers take advantage of hostels because it is generally

  • very cheap to just rent a bed in many parts of the world.

  • However, there have been a ton of people who have had creepy and scary things happen to

  • them while they stayed in a hostel.

  • So, let's jump right into this list of the top 10 scary hostel stories.

  • Starting off this scary list in at number 10 with a Teen who set herself on fire in

  • a hostel.

  • A 16 year old girl set herself on fire in her hostel room back on October 18, 2016.

  • According to the police investigation, the young girl set herself on fire because she

  • didn't want to stay in the hostel.

  • Hmm

  • I don't want to sound too obvious, but if you don't want to stay in that hostel, then

  • you should've packed your bags, went down to the reception and checked yourself out.

  • She didn't leave a suicide note or anything in her room and there were traces of liquid

  • that was discovered near her body.

  • Apparently, the girl called her mother just minutes before committing suicide and she

  • wanted her permission to leave the hostel, but she refused.

  • This is such a tragic case and I wonder what was so horrible about this hostel.

  • Obviously something must've happened to her in this place or else she wouldn't have

  • committed suicide.

  • And her mother probably should've been more understanding or at least tried to listen

  • to her daughter.

  • This makes me never want to stay in a hostel.

  • Peeping tom creeps onto this list in at number 9.

  • Back on October 13, 2016, a man staying at a student hostel in Singapore was caught taking

  • videos of male students while they showered.

  • Wow, talk about a huge invasion of privacy.

  • Why can't communal showers have proper stalls and doors so that no one can peep at you from

  • the next stall over?

  • So, after he was arrested, police found about 70 videos of young men showering on peeping

  • toms phone.

  • He would hide in a shower cubicle, and film their entire shower.

  • Apparently, before he was caught he desperately tried to delete all of the videos but the

  • students were smart and checked the recently deleted folder and found the 66 incriminating

  • video clips.

  • The creeper begged them to not turn him in but obviously they called the police.

  • This peeping tom is way too creepy to let him get away with this.

  • And sadly, this type of creeping has been happening more and more in hostels and public

  • washrooms.

  • Collapsing in at number 8 we have the roof that almost crushed 190 people.

  • A girls' hostel at the University of Science in Malaysia was forced to evacuate 190 students

  • when the roof began to collapse in 2016.

  • I know a lot of students wish that their school burned down in order to get out of class but

  • I'm sure these students were thinking the opposite.

  • A week before this incident happened, the university got a complaint from a student

  • about a leak in her fourth-floor room at the hostel.

  • When the school investigated it they saw that they were being negligent and that the roof

  • wasn't properly supported at all.

  • So before they would have 190 wrongful death lawsuits on their hands, they tried to get

  • everyone out the building before the roof collapsed and crushed everyone inside.

  • Luckily no one got hurt, but something tells me that this school is not out of the woods

  • yet.

  • I'm sure that they had to pay a bunch of money to repair the roof and I'm sure that

  • they had to settle with the kid's families.

  • Spy camera creeps onto this list in at number 7.

  • CCTC cameras were found hiding in the ceiling inside of a bathroom of a girls' hostel

  • in India.

  • Wow this is so messed up.

  • How long have these cameras been hiding in there?

  • Students who lived in this hostel noticed these cameras when they saw a small red blinking

  • light coming from the ceiling.

  • When they went to check things out, they were absolutely shocked when they found a professional

  • CCTV camera installed in their bathroom.

  • The girls began screaming and immediately broke the cameras.

  • They reported it to the hostel management which led to absolute chaos.

  • These girls must feel so violated and grossed out.

  • If I were them I would definitely find a new hostel and I would check every nook and cranny

  • for a hidden camera.

  • They are going to be affected by this for the rest of their lives.

  • I would never trust a hostel, Airbnb or hotel again if I experienced this.

  • I wouldn't even want to use a public restroom.

  • The world's most haunted hostel scares us in at number 6.

  • Have you ever wanted to see if you could survive the night in one of the most haunted hostels

  • in the world?

  • No?

  • Well, me neither but for some people, this sounds really appealing.

  • In Ottawa, Canada, there is an old jail that has been half converted into a hostel that

  • comes equipped with beds, linen, ghostly screams, sleep paralysis and unwanted visitors standing

  • at the edge of your bed.

  • My wife stayed here years ago, and she said that some creepy stuff happened to her.

  • This prison was supposed to be a safe housing for criminals in the area but instead, men

  • and women were so mistreated here, and they were even hung in this prison.

  • So now, it is considered to e one of the most haunted buildings in Canada.

  • So, the next time you are in Ottawa, and you are looking for a good scare you should stay

  • here because you will most likely be staying in an old prison cell that gets locked at

  • night and maybe if you are unlucky, you will have an uninvited ghost stay with you in your

  • cell.

  • Would you guys actually consider staying here?

  • I think I'd rather stay in a Hilton but that's just me.

  • Four girls kidnapped comes onto this list in at number 5.

  • In 2013, four girls aged between 12-15 were literally dragged out of their hostel by 25

  • boys who were armed with knives and other deadly weapons.

  • The boys were extremely violent as they barged through the hostel doors.

  • They picked up of four girls and dragged them outside of the hostel.

  • Witnesses said that the boys were extremely drunk and that they took the girls to a deserted

  • place.

  • The poor girls were raped for two hours before they were able to run away.

  • Seriously though, what is up with the security at hostels.

  • I understand that they are supposed to be a cheaper alternative for travelers but come

  • on.

  • This is exactly why hostels have a bad reputation.

  • If they had stronger security measures put in place, a lot of these crimes wouldn't

  • happen.

  • I mean, it's not rocket science.

  • The police were unable to identify the 25 boys who were involved in this crime so sadly,

  • they will probably get away with it and they might even do the same thing to another hostel.

  • Woman stabbed to death outside of Australian Hostel comes in at number 4.

  • Well, this is probably the worst thing that can happen to you when you are staying at

  • a hostel.

  • But actually, Australian hostels have a very bad reputation.

  • A British woman was killed after she was brutally stabbed at a hostel by a man who shoutedAllah

  • Akbarjust before the vicious attack.

  • After he killed this British woman, he attempted to murder two more people at a Sydney hostel.

  • One of the men who were attacked later died as a result of his injuries.

  • The Frenchman was arrested at the scene and he was immediately taken into custody.

  • Originally, the police thought that he was an extremist, but the police later discovered

  • that the attacker was in love with the woman who he murdered and that he might have been

  • insane.

  • I think it is safe to say that he was mentally insane if he followed her to Australia and

  • attacked her with a knife until she died.

  • Number 3 brings us to a terrible Hostel owner who raped 14 girls.

  • At a hostel in Likabai, India, 14 young girls were raped by the owner of the hostel over

  • the course of three years.

  • This hostel was affiliated with a nearby private school, so most of the students were living

  • in this hostel.

  • The assaults went on for such a long period of time because the owner threatened the girls

  • with worse violence if they reported him and even the school's principal refused to believe

  • what was happening and he even attempted to cover up the truth.

  • These girls were between the ages of fourthirteen years old and some of the girls

  • even tried scaling the walls of the school to report the owner to the police.

  • That's how desperate they were.

  • The hostel owner was eventually arrested for sexual abuse and molestation after the girls

  • reported him to the police.

  • Oh, and did I mention that he is also a teacher in the school.

  • Why are people so messed up?

  • He took advantage of these young girls who trusted him.

  • I'm just glad they were able to report him and now he is getting exactly what he deserves.

  • Grenade thrown at German Hostel lands itself in at number 2.

  • Unidentified attackers threw a live hand grenade at a hostel that was housing asylum seeking

  • people in south-western Germany.

  • The grenade was found at night near a building that had 170 people sleeping inside of it.

  • The pin had been pulled out but thankfully the grenade failed to detonate.

  • Is this real-life right now?

  • These people are so lucky to be alive, but I would be too terrified to stay there another

  • night.

  • And imagine being the one who found the grenade.

  • This was clearly an act of extreme hate and violence but taken to a whole other level.

  • In 2015, there were 1,005 attacks on refugee homes in Germany which is absolutely insane.

  • Some of the people at the hostel were evacuated while the bomb squad worked on removing the

  • live grenade.

  • There are millions of people who have been seeking asylum in Germany and a lot of them

  • came from Syria.

  • It's just extremely sad that they come from a war-torn country and they just can't feel

  • safe anywhere they go.

  • A cannibal bites his way into number 1.

  • No, I'm not talking about Hannibal Lecture, this is a real-life cannibal who ate the flesh

  • off of a young woman.

  • At a hostel for the homeless in Argoed, South Wales Australia, Matthew Williams met a woman,

  • asked her to come back to his hostel and then he killed her before eating one of her eyeballs

  • and parts of her face.

  • Well, her first mistake was agreeing to go back to his hostel.

  • Like seriously, you should never ever go back to someone's hostel if you just met them,

  • especially if they are super creepy.

  • The hostel owner walked in on the horrific incident and she saw the crazy man killing

  • this woman.

  • He was covered in blood and he mutilated the victims body so badly that you could barely

  • tell that it was a woman.

  • The man actually died after he was tasered by the police with 50,000 volts of electricity.

  • It is believed that he was high on a cocktail of serious and heavy drugs because he had

  • black eyes when she saw him.

  • Well there you guys have it
