Most cool places in the world have a Hostel to stay in and they’re great. They’re clean, safe and a great place to meet people and learn about new places. If you’re traveling alone, there’s no better place to be. And you don’t have to be a youth to stay in one. I’ve seen people in their 70’s staying in them. I’ve staying in nice ones for $12/night and that included breakfast. You can travel the world cheap and well at the same time.
