Try living in a hostel
Hotels can offer you comfort, but they will always give you limited options in terms of experience. Hostels, on the other hand, are a paradise for backpackers because they are full of like-minded people, information about the place and useful contacts. The owners usually know a thing or two about the local attractions and can point them out, while friendly travellers will offer their own experience and advice. Not only can you make friends there, but you can also find fellow travelers and get all the information about the place you are going, including prices, hotels and local guides if you need them. Hostels also come in all shapes and sizes, so you’ll be very comfortable there too.
