Cheap Guest Houses
Guest houses are similar to a B&B or hostel, but are provided by independent home owners. In Japan, some guest houses require guests to pay a deposit for incidentals and house cleaning. In other countries, such as South Africa and the United Kingdom, guest houses are likely to be a large house or remodeled manor. It allows for an interesting living experience, especially for a leisure or romantic weekend. Keep in mind though, guest houses have less staff over regular hotels, so don't forget to confirm your arrival and departure dates early - there is no 24 hours customer service in a guest house.
