Now let’s consider Advantages and disadvantages of hostels , hotels and rental apartments.
So the main advantage of hostels are low prices, hostels are the cheapest kind of accommodation you can find in the city centre but be prepared for the lack of privacy and quiet, and you may not feel yourself comfortable. You must cook for yourself, although this can be a advantage for budget tourists. Hostel is a choice of them who don’t have much money and dont need much for cofortble living.
The main disadvantage of hotels are high prices, for budget tourists it is too expensive. But if you like cofortble living
hotel is your only choice.Hotels will cost more than apartments or hostels. However, this will usually guarantee a cleaner room, a more comfortable bed, and more amenities, such as a hotel swimming pool, sauna, gyma and restauran.
The disadvantage of rental apartments is that it is difficult to find for out-of-towner, but it is the best option for price/comfort ratio and you can feel yourself like home.
