Help with Hostels and age

Hello All,
I am planning my eurotrip for may 2009 and i have run across a few problems.
-my friend who I was hoping to travel with bailed on me recently
-I will most likely still go alone
-I will be only 17 at the time turning 18 in august
-Will this be a problem checking into hostels? (Im going to amsterdam, berlin, prague, vienna, maybe bratislava, maybe krakow, and definitly budapest, if at all relevant)
-Another group I know reletively well offered me to join their group all 18 yrs old, would it be less problematic for me to join them or would I run into the same issues?

Amsterdam and Brlin in 10 days, please help!!

So i am going to europe in 10 days! so stoked, il be there from the 17th to th 22nd(flying out th morning of the 22nd) Initially it was going to be only amsterdam but i want to go to berlin too since i am in the region. The plan is to take a train to berlin on th 18th and back to amsterdam on the 20th. is that enough time and is it worth spending a 100 euros on the train ride? My intentions in berlin is to drink, have fun and just a little sightseeing. What would you guys suggest? or should I just hang out in amsterdam for 5 days? also is munich closer than berlin?

teaching english...Berlin VS Budapest

Im saving up to go back to europe this august. My plan is to hit the sziget festival in budapest in august, then valencia for tomatina, and finally octoberfest in september before trying to settle down and teaching english. I currently teach esl at the local language school in my hometown, by the time i leave i should have about 90 hrs of in-class teaching expirience. what i need to know, is where do i have the best chance of finding work and getting a visa to work and live. My two Preferences are Berlin and Budapest.
