Trim off travel costs by staying at a hostel and spend about $15 to $35 a night. A popular place to find hostels is hihostels.com. Hostels have evolved from their traditional image and some of the choices on the website even include private rooms for couples, families, or groups of friends.
If you're a first-timer, be sure to prep yourself before the trip and remember to bring things like shower slippers and ear plugs.
