Accommodation

Accommodation is usually the most expensive item line on any budget traveller’s budget. From hostel dorm rooms to 5-star hotel accommodations, there are a wide range of accommodation choices to choose from in any city.

This section of the website is dedicated to listing places that I personally recommend, as well as websites that I frequently use to try and find the best frugal accommodation.

Websites I use

AirBnB (review) – This website operates through peer-to-peer accommodation. Individuals list spaces in their homes – usually private rooms in an apartment or house. It can be a great middle ground between a hostel and a hotel in terms of price and amenities.
