Quiz: Hotel, Hostel, Or Airbnb. Which Is Right For You?

There’s always the question when travelling of where should you stay?

For some of us we just want the cheapest thing we can get.

We don’t plan on spending a whole lot of time in our room.

That sounds like a hostel could be right for you.

Some want something extra unique.

Airbnb has lots of creative options.

For others it’s all about convenience.
