Cheap Lodging Worldwide
Disclaimer: Unless otherwise noted, I have not stayed in the lodgings listed here and make no recommendation as to their quality. Most listings are for organizations of hostels and other lodgings, many of which have their own standards of quality. I leave it entirely to you to do normal due diligence in choosing where you stay.
This page is way out of date, and I have no intention of maintaining it. However, I suspect most of what I list still exists and can still be found via search engines, and I suspect that many of the links are still valid, so I keep it posted for you. But please do not send me updates for this page. I will not maintain it.
