Independent travelers choose a hostel

The latest opinion poll showed that a third of our fellow citizens chose independent travel last year. Many people have been traveling on their own for a long time abroad. Russians only have to learn this. Recently, such independent tourists from Russia are no longer rare on the streets of European capitals. Trips devoid of plan and preliminary organization bring much more pleasure and experience than ready-made tours.
A ticket, some money in your pocket – and go. However, stop, still a visa and accommodation! .. And here hostels can also be very useful, because the main expense item in every trip is exactly accommodation.

Robberies and other crimes, like scams involving unsuspecting tourists, are common in cities. In general, if you become a victim of a robbery, you have no choice but to obey the circumstances.
