When travelling independently and alone, hostels can be the best places to lay your head when visiting a new place. Not only are they cheaper, but they provide ample opportunities to meet other people in a similar situation to yourself. Staff can usually also help with arranging trips and onward transportation, as well as being a great source of local knowledge for places to eat and drink and sights to see. Some hostels provide a basic breakfast, and others have shared facilities where guests can keep their own food and prepare basic meals.
