Airbnb

Airbnb is a platform that allows users to list their homes/apartments for others to stay at for a certain period of time. This option is often more affordable, more unique, more memorable, and more homey that most hotels or hostels.

I love Hostelworld but it doesn't always have all of the hostels that are in the area. If nothing pops up on Hostelworld, I always search my Booking app to see what is available in the area. They usually have a larger selection of places to choose from.

Locking your locker is very important when staying in hostels but what is equally as important is locking your bag. If you're planning on going out for a stroll and don't want to bring the entire thing with you. Lock your bag up to something in your hostel to prevent others from taking it.
