Using hostels as accommodation while backpacking is one of the best (and cheapest!!) ways to stay on the road and meet so many wonderful fellow travelers. I love hostels and will continue to use them for the unseeable future. Hostels aren’t just a bunch of bunk beds crammed into a room!! They’re full of activities, lounges, bars, cafes, bar crawls, walking tours, and private rooms. Think of them as budget hotels where you actually get to meet people!
