Hostels are a great place to stay when travelling on a budget. Check out HostelWorld to find a hostel that suits you and your budget. You can compare what the hostels provide and then book a bed.







When I am feeling I need something more than a hostel bed I turn to Booking.com for a hotel room. From budget hotels to a bit of luxury Booking.com is a great site to compare and book accommodation that suits you and your budget.
