Hitchhiking works very well. Urban/local transportation is usually cheap or reasonable and long distance paid transport may be affordable depending on your budget.

In small town (e.g Struga on Ohrid lake) you can find a private informal accomodation even for 5€/night. In more touristic places prices equal average european standards.

Hospitality exchange works usually very well and also wild camping is very doable in most of the country (don't leave your belongings unattended inside the tent though!even in remote areas, posthitchgathering 2014 teaches..)
