Traveling for 8 months in total and 4 months in Europe so trying to keep expenses as low as possible while in Asia, as it will not be as easy to do in Europe. Ideally less than $20 a night, if that's possible. Don't need anything fancy; a double bed is good with a fan, wifi is a nice bonus but not necessary almost 7 years ago
