Other Accommodation Options:

AirBnB – a community marketplace for people to discover and book unique accommodations around the world — online or from a mobile phone or tablet. – Stay with hosts for free, usually in exchange for also hosting others on your “couch” for free.  Possibly worth consideration for the extremely budget conscious traveler.
