Hostels are usually the cheapest accommodation option and can offer a lively social environment and a chance to meet other travelers in South Africa. Note that some hostels feature an active bar scene while others promote a unique location or accommodation. Not just cheap locations, hostels can also be found in the castles of the UK, caves in Turkey, Jumbo Jet in Sweden, underground in Australia, and underwater in the USA.
It is important to consider:
Amount of beds per room
Amenities (internet, laundry room, bathrooms)
Reviews (party hostel? quiet?)
Easy online booking and reviews can make finding a discount bed the best stay in South Africa.
