These are definitely... interesting.

Airbnb is a great source for finding unique places to stay on a budget. Penny Hoarder recently found these Airbnb listings for under $100. But what if even $100 is beyond your budget? Well, Airbnb offers plenty of places to crash for less than $50 a night—and the lower price tag usually means the uniqueness factor actually increases. Read on for the most unique places to stay on a budget in every state and you’ll see what I mean…
