comment Schengen visa application with no job
Could you clarify the word 'joining'? Does it mean, it's an organized trip? Or you organize it yourself?

comment Can I buy local prepaid mobile number in any Schengen country without having permanent residence proof there?
Your question title asks about any country (did you mean - every?) and the body is about the specific country. One of things you should fix.

You mean, it was purposely cooled down in freezer?

I don't think there will be any other answer as checking Wikitravel or Travel.SE...

@jwenting, no, not inherently safe, but safe enough that there are so many survivors ;)

comment Website to arrange rides with trucks
@Relaxed after removing the hitchhiking part, the question as for me is about why such site doesn't exist (or would such site be viable).

comment Website to arrange rides with trucks
Without that tag, the question doesn't make much sense... It's basically about hitchhiking with truck. Other way it would be the question about hitchhiking-like web sites, so off-topic.

@uncovery "I see trucks going everywhere, and I always wondered if I could get a lift from them." - hears like hitchhiking for me.

@jwenting I didn't written hitchhiking is safe. I've written hitchhiking with truck is as safe as normal one.

SEPA is implemented in Germany from begin of this year, so the comments above were not valid in the moment they were written.

comment How can I withdraw my money with a VISA debit card with lower fees in Germany?
With domestic card, yes, but if you pay with foreign card, you can be charged anyway by your bank etc. In Germany, paying with debit card anywhere is generally not an option, non-domestic cards are accepted almost nowhere.

I wish you luck, but 2.5% is actually low for Germany, you should be happy it wasn't 5% or more.

comment Is it common that hostels charge more for woman only dorm rooms?
@vartec you couldn't be more wrong. 'women-only' facilities are very common in Europe

comment Is it common that hostels charge more for woman only dorm rooms?
@JoErNanO women are not paying more to use female-only dorms is not discrimination because men can't use it. Lack of men-only dorms could be perceived as discrimination, however it's very unlikely, because people wanting to sleep only in one-sex rooms tend to be only women.

comment Is it common that hostels charge more for woman only dorm rooms?
@JoErNanO but there's no discrimination. Women pay exactly the same - when they choose the mixed room. And single sex rooms are more expensive because they are more problematic to utilize.

comment Do hostels provide toiletries?
@hippietrail Bedbugs don't care if you sleep in your sleeping bug or you have it in your bag. They are happy to say even in a sock so unless you require the guests to arrive naked and without any luggage, that trick won't work :)

comment Dorm / Hostel: How to assert myself politely with roommates
As for locking out, in hostel you should become your own key, so it should be no-go.

comment How do you pack your dirty clothing when moving from hotel to hotel?
If they don't managed to get dry, you'll make them take more place, be heavier, and risk they'll mold :)

comment How to deal with a full trash can for used toilet paper where you are not allowed to flush the toilet paper?
@jpatokal well, no. I've seen that in hostels in Germany, so what I've heard is also a norm in Greece. Many old buildings have poor sanitation. Quite interesting, in Poland usually old buildings have superior sanitation to that new ones - you could probably flush a living chicken in it
