HOTELS AND HOSTELS
Finding the perfect hotel on holiday is an adventure of its own. Many travelers have stayed in a hotel but not a hostel. It's common for many backpackers to stay in hostels while travelling. Hostels are budget friendly dorm style accommodations ranging from 3 to 10 beds in a dorm style room with shared bathrooms. Rooms can be mixed or same sex. Hostels range in many forms from monastaries, barracks to even a converted airplane. While hostels are not for everyone they are perfect for saving tons of money, meeting travelers from all over the world and they are relatively safe. I always stay in hostels when I travel solo overseas.
NOTE: It's mandatory for the hostels to make a copy of your passport for security reasons and they follow the same procedures just like the hotel industry.
SEARCHING FOR ACCOMMODATIONS
These are the 3 websites that I always use that offer the best available prices wherever I travel and honest reviews.
NOTE: Always check with the hotel or hostels website for cheaper deals.
