This is the best site for train information throughout Europe. It has timetables for the majoirty of destinatons
Is useful to find out the cost of certain trips.
It is so easy to take the train in Europe. Being North Americans, we are not used to that kind of efficiency. They are always on time. Be careful when you get on board because sometimes wagons separate during the trip and you can end up in a different city. The destination is always posted on the wagons. Also, travel overnight so you don't have to pay for a room.
Matt and Cole,
Read the "hostels" section on www.eurotrip.com. It has hostel reviews. That will help you make a good decision on which hostel to stay at in each city. Hope this helps.
