Shane, Thanks for following along ;)
Hostels/hotels...... I use many different ways, if I can get them recommendations always are top of my list. Looking for sure bike parking is a must. I use ADV, Lonely Planet guides, google, and whatever I can find. In Mexico we used the guides to get us to an area of town then just looked around and decided.
If I have a long day or getting into a huge city I prefer to have something figured out for a day or two so that I can get settled then explore and change as needed. Part of the big reason I share the resources /prices links is to help others.
Best of Luck on whatever you decide to do!!
