There are International Youth Hostels and Independent Backpacker Hostels. I have stayed in youth hostels and in backpacker hostels in Europe, the USA, Australia and New Zealand. There are dormitory rooms and private rooms like singles, doubles and family rooms in some bigger hostels. The best hostel I stayed in was Pittwater Hostel near Sydney. It has a stunning location with wild birds and possums coming to visit. Another lovely hostel is Cairns Hostel complete with a small outdoor swimming pool. Travel guide books aimed at budget travelers list hostels and the Youth Hostel Association of different countries each have a different website. In hostels there in a wonderful international sort of flavor and travelers from all over the world go there. I hope that you go hosteling on day soon.

I stayed before in Australia, Europe and South Africa with group of friends in mixed dormitory. Mixed dormitory means boys and girls dorm.Is quite fun and very cost saving. You could find good deals from hostelworld and book the hostel there. If you prefer to travel backpacking and cheap, this is a good option. the downside probably you might need to share toilets with others and careful with your belongings since most of them are strangers in your room.

I've heard of this myself, though I haven't experienced it yet (sadly!). But yes, hostels tend to be very cheap and good for the younger crowd while traveling. It's ideal for college kids on a low budget.. or anyone willing to try it, really. Just keep in mind that yes, it's like a dormitory, and you can't expect as-good service at a hostel as you could at a hotel. You get what you pay for, after all. Still, it's a roof over your head, and if you're traveling a lot, that can be all you want.
