Carole Chiaro, one-post-member drliu
(ALSO from California by the way... Hmmm.... interesting) asked a similar question earlier this month in the " bartering for hostel/hotel and shopping
" thread and pim politely said that "bargaining" was only appropriate at street markets. I'd have to agree with her.
Asking for a price-cut from a half-full (or less) hostel, "more expensive" or not, is kind of like asking the owners to accept
half-a-meal that evening because of the discount they might give you. I wouldn't do it. Maybe
if you were staying for an entire week it might
be permissable to ask for a discount. This, somehow, sounds somewhat reasonable to me.
