					Without constraints or firm schedules, backpackers are completely free.
Most hostels offer private rooms and dormitories. Private rooms are
usually singles, twins or doubles and some properties also offer triples.
Youth Hostels provide the perfect way to get to know a country at low
cost.

You can use the web to discover room rates for hostels at your desired
destination. There is a terrific sense of freedom by going backpacking
and staying at hostels. A useful tip - Many hostels give discounts to
students, so you should always keep your student card handy.

Go to the tourist office. Here you can pickup a free tourist map and ask
questions about what to do or what to see. Many hostels offer a wide
range of activities - from city tours to white water-rafting. In all
hostels, although the custom is to remain as quiet as possible at night,
you should expect a small amount of noise from your fellow hostel
occupants.

Sample the locale - Visit local restaurants and bars. They are much
cheaper and you can try the traditional specialities and even meet the
locals. Hostels provide a great way to meet new people and experience new
things which is why they appeal to such a diverse range. Many hostels
have a self-catering kitchen where you can cook your own meals and some
even have their own restaurants, cafe and bars.

Many hostels have remained old school and you do need to maintain an open
mind when choosing this form of accommodation. Planning that seems so
trivial at home can become complicated when you are in a strange place.
Many hostels provide access for wheelchair users, and specially adapted
rooms are becoming more common. Almost all hostels offer lockers, either
free of charge or for hire so that people staying in dormitories can lock
up their valuables.
