Amazing Places You Can Stay Around the World for Less Than $50 a Night

And not one involves a tent or a hostel

You live to travel. But damn, it’s expensive. And since you’ll probably bust your budget on overpriced airfare and some kind of Fiat rental, that doesn't leave much to spare for a killer suite.

Thankfully, there are places all around the world you can stay for about $50 a night. We’ve rounded up the cream of the crop.

Perast, Montenegro

A waterfront studio bursting with rustic charm, this Balkan hideaway (at $46 a night) has a pretty unreal view of the Bay of Kotor, not to mention close access to Perast’s cultural hot spots.

Sanur, Bali

Stage an Eat, Pray, Love moment at this jaw-dropping villa, where a private bedroom, breakfast terrace and ensuite bath are yours for $39 a night. Gorgeous and adoring soulmate not included.

Gascony, France

Do you really think it’s going to be hard to wrangle up seven friends to split a week at this 17th-century château in the heart of Southern France? (Um, no.) Among eight people, this dreamy property--featuring a gorgeous garden and swimming pool--comes down to a cool $43 per person per night.

Tangier, Morocco

Put your bargaining skills to use at the lively souk markets and get lost in the old medina alleyways of Tangier. Afterward, relax in this $40 flat with a nap-worthy sofa and soothing blue-and-white palette.

Lecce, Italy

Sometimes called the “Florence of the south,” Lecce is the little-known gem of Italy’s heel. Explore this historic city by day…then escape to modern comforts at night at this $33 guesthouse. Breakfast and Wi-Fi are even included.

Mendoza, Argentina

Oh, so you want to stay in the heart of Argentinian wine country, do you? How does a super tranquil, light-filled loft with exposed brick sound? This $33 space may look a little stark, but we just see it as more storage for your cases of Malbec.

Catania, Sicily

Contemporary design meets old-school Sicilian allure at the Design Bed & Breakfast, complete with psychedelic wallpaper and playful curios. At $44 a night, this spot is ideal for chic (and, dare we say, cheap) nomads.

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Viroth’s Villa is a tropical-modern haven for adventure seekers in Southeast Asia. Between your Angkor Wat outings, relax with a rooftop massage or manicure or take a refreshing dip in the pool. Technically, it’s slightly over our budget at $54 a night, but are you really missing that $4?

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
