Hostels offer no-frills, budget-priced and sometimes communal living arrangements for travelers. You can purchase a private room for a fraction of the cost of a hotel room, but because of that low cost you don't get the niceties you might expect in a hotel -- like toiletries or sometimes even sheets. Some backpackers and budget travelers cut costs even further by sleeping in a dorm room, which might accommodate anywhere from 4 to 30 people. Whether you're embracing the social aspect of the hosteling adventure or just trying to save a buck, you can do a lot to guarantee yourself a positive experience.
