Backpacker Hotels offer the entry-level form of accommodation. In Australia, they are the fastest growing section of accommodation providers, as people began to realise that backpacker hotels does not necessarily translate into grimmy, places, but offer quite comfortable and clean accommodation for just a fraction of the rates offered by mainstream hotels. Those associated with Youth Hostels Association can be expected to maintain a certain degree of comfort.

If you are contemplating booking accommodation at a backpacker hotel, you need to adjust your expectations accordingly. A good way to do your homework is to view the list of Hostels in Australia. Listed here are the backpacker hotels, their facilities, and details on whether you can book a bed in a dormitory or a private room, whether there are attached bathrooms, and so on. For some of these places, you can also check comments left behind by others who have booked there. These are all useful tips before you decide.
When you make your booking, you will pay a deposit of about 10% of the total price of your accommodation. This is not a booking fee, so when you arrive at the establishment, expect to pay only the balance and not the full amount.

Write Like Me, Earn Like Me!
I am one of the lucky people who earn more per month from my websites than most people earn from their jobs. That explains why I can be the Happy Jobless Guy. The secret is, everybody can do it, but not everybody knows how to do it. Let me tell you, if you can maintain a blog, you can earn from the web. Even if you can write just 5% of what I write, you could be earning good money every month.
I didn't write my websites because of the money - though it is admittedly great motivation! I write my sites out of passion. Through my passion, I have carved a niche for myself, and that makes me a good living. Unfortunately, a lot of people are also writing on the web with great passion, but they make no money. If you're one of them, stop, you are wasting your time. You could be earning money when you aren't. Learn to do it the right way - learn to do it my way!
