One of the best deals in many cities is staying in private rooms in hostels. Though spartan, these rooms are clean and functional, and hostels are very good places to meet people. Bigger hostels also offer family rooms, which will be a big hit with kids.
Think back to where you stayed on your last trip. Was it simply a place to rest your head, or did it immerse you in local colour, surround you by wildlife and fire your imagination? We asked Travel Booking's authors and editors to nominate the most extraordinary hotels and hostels around the world.

These characterful places to stay around the world offer comfort and charm in superlative settings - all of them are well under $70 per night, and plenty have dorm beds for only a few dollars.
