Possibly the most begrudging endeavour when planning a getaway is finding the best place to sleep. We’re faced with this challenge every second day or so and thought it was time we shared our secrets!
We’ve slept in 148 beds since leaving Australia so I believe this makes us somewhat the experts on finding accommodation. We’ve slept in some amazing places for as little as $3-5 per night, and some really dodgy over-priced cesspits for much more. Mostly though, we’ve had good experiences and so, we would like to share our method for finding a bed with you.
Our number one preference for finding the perfect hostel or hotel is to arrive in our destination and go door to door. We often find better deals and it gives us the ability to negotiate prices or check the place out before committing to any payments. Some places can’t even be found through online search engines and these ones are generally hidden gems.
If you prefer to be prepared however, than using online search engines is a great place to start. The most popular sites for accommodation are;
To save you time checking every site however, you can now use Hostelz.com which will check all of the four sites above and deliver you the best prices. One search, instead of four. Quick and easy.
The best part, is when you use the link on the Global Runaways webpage, you’re supporting our adventures and it doesn’t cost you a single cent. (The link can be found on the right of your screen).
So the next time you’re looking for a hostel or hotel, consider heading over and using our link or send us an email for personal recommendations on places to sleep. We’re always happy to help our fellow travellers.
