Spending money on accommodation while traveling is naturally going to be one of the biggest expenses a traveler will face. However, such costs certainly do not have to be as high as one might expect.

With a few simple steps, it actually can be quite easy to find clean, comfortable and most importantly, affordable, places to stay in almost every corner of the world. So how does one even begin the search for such accommodation? Well, here’s the methods I use during my travels, methods that have allowed me to sleep well without costing me much money at all during the past 12 years I’ve been on the road.

Step 1: Have a look at a Hostel booking site such as Enter the country, city and dates you need and you’ll instantly be provided with a detailed list of places available, complete with a description, prices for both shared dorm rooms and private rooms and reviews from other travelers who have stayed in these locations.

Step 2: Find a place that meets your needs in terms of location, atmosphere and price, and make sure that it has good reviews!

Step 3: Go to and search for the the hostel(s)/budget hotels that you’ve chosen as your top choices. Read the reviews on TripAdvisor and compare those reviews to the ones on The reason for this is that many hostels either pay travelers to write fake positive reviews or simply write them themselves on the Hostel booking websites. Checking the Trip Advisor reviews helps ensure that the reviews are legitimate. If the reviews don’t tell the same story as, you should definitely be suspicious!

Step 4: Do a Google search for the hostel(s) / budget hotels that make your final list and most of the time, you’ll find the direct website for each location.

Step 5: Search the website for the prices as they are usually cheaper than what is listed on the Hostel booking sites. If the price is cheaper, then send an email to the hostel/hotel through their website requesting a reservation for the dates you need.

This method will save you from paying inflated prices and will help you avoid any unnecessary booking fees.
