You talking Euro or USD?
My outlay averages 38 Euro per day for accommodation, but I am a recluse and have booked single rooms or bought out the other beds in a twin or triple room. Breakfast is included in many of the room rates, but I budgeted 25 euro per day in addition for food. I tend to err on the side of caution. If you can team up with someone then you'll reduce your accommodation outlay. Additionally, anyone who I can tolerate along my journey is going to score some cheap/free accommodation if they are nice...

"Do we really want to travel in hermetically sealed popemobiles through the rural provinces of France, Mexico and the Far East, eating only in Hard Rock Cafes and McDonalds? Or do we want to eat without fear, tearing into the local stew, the humble taqueria's mystery meat, the sincerely offered gift of a lightly grilled fish head? I know what I want. I want it all. I want to try everything once."
