Hostels in Sardinia

Hostels in Sardinia can provide a cost-effective option for anyone looking to travel through the island on a budget. In fact, cheap lodging in Sardinia does not get a whole lot cheaper than the accommodations you will find at local hostels. Backpackers and people who are on long expeditions often times choose hostels as their first option in order to save as much money as possible. For some, accommodations are everything. For others, accommodations are merely a place to lay down your head before you embark upon the next day’s journeys. Hostels in Sardinia are a great bet if you want to explore the island on a shoestring budget. There are Cagliari hostels, viable options in Olbia and Alghero, and others dispersed around the island.

Just as there are hostels peppered all over continental Europe in places like England and France, Italy also is home to countless hostels which stay busy even in non-peak season months. Hostels like the Casa Del Sole in Alghero provide an inexpensive alternative for people looking to spend less and still stay in a comfortable and clean environment. It is located centrally to all of the attractions in town including Lido Beach, the Nuraghic Ruins, and the Old Town. You can rent rooms that have private bathrooms for only the people staying in the room. Be aware that this is a plus as many hostels require that you walk down the hall to a communal shower.

La Poseidonia is an impressive hostel, especially given the price, right on Lido Beach. The accommodations are clean, the staff is friendly, and most importantly, you are just steps from the Mediterranean. Sa Domu Cheta is one of the nicest Cagliari hostels that also offers friendly service and clean and comfortable accommodations. This impressive hostel is located on the first floor of a newly-renovated nineteenth-century mansion. You will be surprised just how much money it is possible to save when booking such cheap lodging in Sardinia.

Prices and quality of hostels vary from city to city and country to country. In the same city it is possible to find a raucous, club-like hostel where people are up until all hours of the morning. This is not the ideal scenario for those looking for recuperative sleep in anticipation of the next day’s adventures. On the other hand, there are also many hostels where occupants are in bed early and value the benefit of a good night’s sleep. If you have already begun to make travel arrangements, plan in advance as much as possible to make sure that you are choosing hostels in Sardinia that are right for you.

Researching cheap lodging in Sardinia can be pretty easy with the right methods. Most hostels have listings online that allow you to look at pictures of the rooms and other facilities. They almost without fail also offer the ability to read reviews of people who have stayed there previously. You can find out, for instance, if you will have a private bathroom or a shared bathroom, how many beds are in each room, where the hostel is located from nearby attractions and what transportation options are available from where it is located. This is very valuable information with which to be equipped, especially if you are booking multiple nights at a particular hostel in a row. If you are staying at one of the Cagliari hostels and have booked three consecutive nights only to find out after one night that it is a nightmare situation, you will have very little luck if any getting your money back. This is why it becomes so important to put some advance planning into your research of pensions in Sardinia before you make reservations.

Whether you are looking for Cagliari hostels, Olbia hostels, or just cheap lodging in Sardinia in general, you are sure to find a suitable option that meets your requirements for comfort, cleanliness, and location.
