Again, there is a wonderful Youth Hostle in the centre of Monterey. it's very cheap, new and [this one's important] clean. I've made my reservations already, just in case.... Monterey fills up Fastasthat!
No, you did not mention the distance. But I'm sure that Amercian is much more sanitary than in China.
Another piont, youth hostels only cost 5 bucks in china, since the poeple all live in bunk beds, 25 popele share 5 bathrooms. Is cleaned ANUUALY, and usually does not have running water. (The floor is full of dust, spit and icky bugs too.) So, China still gives me the creeps.
