Typically backpackers are for single young travellers. Rooms are usually shared and often have bunk-beds as their sleeping arrangements. There are plenty of arranged tours, from bar-hopping to guided forests walks, all within the budget of a young traveller. Breakfasts are included and most backpackers will have a swimming pool and balcony area with a barbeque area.
