I'm travelling to Italy for the summer holiday and I'm in a very tight budget.
For what I've noticed, renting guest houses seemed the cheapest option, but I'm a bit skittish about it. I basically don't like the idea of having a stranger have a copy of my house keys.
I've only stayed in guest houses in my own country and as a young child, so my experience is very minimal.
Should I be worried? Should I go for a more costly option, just to be safe?
What are the main points that I should be looking for when renting a guest house?
