Honestly, I've been traveling a TON this Summer - and that's basically thanks to hostel apps like Airbnb, Homestay, and Dwellable. If you haven't heard of these, they're smartphone apps that you use to connect with people that're willing to rent out rooms or entire homes for a price that tends to be much cheaper per week than per night at a hotel! I found an entire apartment to rent in China for $100 per week on AirBNB - and I was tempted to stay for a month! Honestly, that'd end up being less than my rent per month at my old apartment in Seattle (and hey, this place looked nice). I ended up going for two weeks, and enjoyed my time there! The host was very friendly, and they were able to provide all the amenities you'd find in a hotel (plus a kitchen and laundry machines). Anyway, have you used either of these 3 apps? Are there any apps that you think are just as good? Let me know!
