If the budget is small, but the longing for Incredible India is great, we recommend to book a cheap flight at an early stage and to stay in India in hostels, guesthouses, budget hotels, homestays or private accommodation.
Cheap dorm rooms are available in most tourist places
And it can very cheap. A bed in hostels can cost four euros only! Well, this is not a luxury hostel and you stay with others in a shared dorm, but the hostels that deserve this name - like Zostel, Vedanta Wake Up! Or the Moustache Hostel - are clean and you also get to know a lot of people.
Budget beach cottages in Goa
A little more comfortable - and above all with contact with locals - are the private accommodation via Airbnb. From 15 Euro per night you can find nice private rooms in many cities of India on this internet platform. The local hosts also have a few tips, which should not be missed in their city, where there is a good restaurant or a trendy bar.
If you do not want to be so private, but still have little money to spend, there are still cheap budget hotels or homestays of the lower price class.
If you are looking for an adventure, you can also book an Indian, non-star hotel. This isn’t only something for the hard-fisted. Most often, staff can speak English. This can also be an experience that you would not want to miss in the end. This is recommended for people who have travelled to India at least once.
