There are some great websites that you can find online and connect with locals who offer a spot in their own home.

Pick a nice Hostel
There are a couple of things to keep in mind when searching for a hostel to crash in. Try to look for a hostel that is affordable enough, but that still doesn’t look like it was used for a set of a horror movie. So check pictures, and I mean all of the pictures available on the website, and check the comment section as well. Find out what other people that stayed there have to say about the place.
Choose the Location Wisely
The last thing that you want is to stay in a hostel that is miles away from the center of the city. You are on your vacation, so you should be only a couple of minutes away from the place where everything happens- the downtown. If you are visiting a country to spend time on beautiful beaches and resorts then the location of your new temporary home matters. Not only that you will save money on gas or cab fare, but you will also be able to spend more time experiencing new stuff.

You can save money, time and nerves if you book a hotel room before your departure. So make sure that you know what you are looking for before your start packing your bags. If your pocket is deep enough and you want nothing but the best for yourself, including the most luxurious place to crash in then you can look for any five-star hotel in that area. However, if you don’t have the intent to spend all your savings on a one week trip, then you might take these tips into consideration.
