Which city, Dubai or Muscat, is the cheapest for budget accommodation? Overall costs such as transport, airport tax, food, is the cheapest?

I guess you could call Muscat the least expensive one in general, but finding hostels in Muscat is almost impossible, as in Dubai there are a few i believe. Tickets to Dubai might be cheaper as well, cost of living is cheaper in Oman.
