^^ Agree. But, if you happen to end up in a town during peak season, it doesn't hurt to try. We didn't book a few hostels ahead of time (Barcelona, Krakow, a few off the beaten path places) and didn't have a problem getting a place to stay. But, it still made us a wee nervous.
We did accidentally end up in Frankfurt, Germany during the World Cup (I believe) and ended up paying 140 Euro for a tiny hotel room since it was the only thing that was available!! Ouch.
