Alternatives To Hotels for 18-Year-Olds

Several hotels permit 18-year-olds to check in, even though most require guests to be 21 years old for various reasons.

If none of the previously-mentioned hotels appeal to you, I’ve got you covered as you have other options. So, without further ado, here they are.

Hostels

Hostels are a great alternative to hotels, especially if you need a budget-friendly, fun alternative to hotels where you can meet kids your age.

While the amenities are basic and (mostly) clean, you can book a private room if sleeping on a bunk bed is not "your thing." And you might make a few new friends!

Airbnb

Another fantastic alternative is Airbnb, as they permit 18-year-olds to check-in. Although, there are a few exceptions, as hosts can set age restrictions. So, please check their “House Rules” to avoid disappointment.
