When travelling alone, I am a fan of hostels, because you can often meet people better there. B&Bs used to be friendly, with a communal lounge, but nowadays they are often very lonely places, with a TV in every room, so nobody makes contact, and you only meet other guests at breakfast time. Camping is cheaper than hostels, but in many ways very inconvenient.
Does anyone prefer a different sort of accommodation than hostels, and why?
In some hostels, you can't get to the rooms and showers without a key, which only paying guests should have... I've also seen small hostels that you get a key to the front door... Those are the places I like... it's much better with few people around and people from outside can't easily get in... It's good to stay in big party hostels, as long as the party doesn't continue in my bed room...
