A,B: A BED, A BUDGET
So, ya wanna travel the world and you kinda don't wanna sleep outside EVERYday, you wanna sleep in a bed - and you're on a tight budget. What to do, what to do? A bed in a hostel helps you balance and stay on your budget :) At The Crib Hostel in Plovdiv, Bulgaria you can stay in a nice, comfortable, clean bed in a 6-bed dorm for only 7 euro. If you choose to reserve a room in a 5-bed dorm you only need to add 2 euro more per night.
(Each room in the hostel comes with large windows, lockers, air-conditioner/heater, and this 5-bed room is directly connected to a terrace.)
(Just me, chillin' outside on the terrace leading from the 5-bed room at The Crib Hostel in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.)
If something more private suits your fancy, The Crib Hostel also offers a private room for 11 euro/per person/per night. Whichever room you choose, the prices are reasonable enough to offer you a bed without beating up your budget.
C,D,E,F: CRIB'S Delicious Edible Food
Any traveller can tell you that one of the main culprits of a budget beatdown is food - meals, how NOT to starve. The Crib has the answer. If you stay at the hostel for more than 2 nights, on your 3rd night and every night thereafter until the end of your stay, you get - wait for it - FREE DINNER! Just imagine booking your room, taking a pleasantly warm shower in one of the 2 bathrooms, sitting down on one of the 5 bean bags and enjoying a well-cooked meal surrounded by people who are willing to share experiences with you.
