What if programming languages were accommodation for tourists

Finding good accommodation for vacations is neither easy nor straightforward. It requires some experience and some investigative skills. I was in a good summer mood when planning my own vacations and a thought occurred: What if programming languages were accommodation for tourists?

The internet is full of humorous what if programming languages texts, but couldn't find one for accommodation, so I wrote my own. Summer is a good time for writing funny, lightweight, worthless posts.

Enjoy!

Java

An expensive, luxury 5-star hotel. Everyday you wonder why you pay such money for services you rarely use. If money is not an issue this is the best choice.

JavaScript

A decent bed and breakfast. Nothing more, nothing less. Suitable only if you are outdoors for sightseeing the whole day.

C++

A hostel. You must handle everything yourself: living conditions, transportation, guides, neighbors etc. Recommended only to young and experienced travelers.

Go

A decent 3-star hotel. The personnel is the most kind, helpful and trained you ever met. You will enjoy it but next year you will consider the 5-star hotels.

Ruby

Airbnb. It looks beautiful and cheap on the site but you can never be sure until you see it with your eyes.

Python

Hospitality. You are hosted in a friend's house. Everything depends on how good and close that friend is.

PHP

Apartment. You couldn't find anything decent online so you talk to a friend who has a friend with a friend who rents rooms. Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

Clojure

A mansion. A well preserved 19th century mansion, located inside a big, beautiful garden and with a path to a private beach. Nature and serenity but where are the people? Recommended to fiction writers or avid readers.
