Accommodation needs and travel tastes are personal but these resources can help you make the right choices
I am a little picky of where I stay whilst I am travelling.
Mainly, I cast the most judgement on the "sleeping" situation as I am not the best at getting shut eye.
So I always look for a decent bed, then depending on the length of stay, the kitchen. A big part of travelling is cooking, to keep your budget down and also because going out every night can ruin the whole experience eventually. Plus, buying and eating the local produce is the best way to support the community you are visiting.
What I like is not everyones cup of tea, so here are some great options to check out for your travels that will keep costs down and help you make some great connections around the planet.
