When travelling on a budget, a hostel can be a great option for saving a bit of cash. They’re incredibly popular all over the world and definitely have an atmosphere unlike that of any hotel. But is there a price to pay for this cost-effective accommodation? Well, there are certainly plenty of travellers with a story or two to tell. Still, don’t get discouraged by these tales of woe. If you want to travel without having to sell a kidney, you won’t go far wrong with a decent hostel.
