Some of the Best Places to Stay at While Backpacking

Finding the best accommodation at a low price is challenging, doesn't matter whether you’re going for a weekend getaway or a year-long backpacking trip. However, backpackers like to stick to a budget while preferring to stay in a camp, dorm room, or hostel. In this blog, we’ve put together a list of affordable places you can stay while exploring your favorite places. Let’s begin:

Couchsurfing Houses

You'll find it in any country or place you're traveling to. Couchsurfing is one of the cheapest accommodations and serves as an excellent way to save money. Several backpackers swear by it. It’s free and you get to meet the local people, talk to them and understand their culture. If you’re lucky, your host might take you out and show you some of the best places. You’re more likely to find good hosts if you’re backpacking across North America or Europe, as Couchsurfing is pretty big there.

Hostels

They’re one of the most popular places for backpackers to stay in. They’re no longer the dark and dingy buildings they once were. Now, hostels have been upgraded and, in some cases, are cleaner than your average hotel. They’re cheap and don’t just cater to the young. Just like in couchsurfing, you can meet new people and make some new friends. Hostels also provide you with a sense of security and if you’re lucky, you might just end up with a hostel owner who’ll go above and beyond to make his guest feel comfortable and at home.

Camping

It’s practically free and if you’re going trekking, you’ll have the chance to see the Milky Way in all of its glory. The best thing is that no one is going to object if you set up a campsite somewhere. Of course, it can be a bit risky, but it’s best you do some research about the area you’re traveling to so that you can avoid any unpleasant situations. If you’re not interested in carrying a tent around for the entire, you can always rent it for a week or two. Moreover, you can also leave your belongings in a hostel until you’re done to avoid burdening yourself when you’re camping.
