Well part of vacation is to get away or to celebrate so it makes sense in that aspect. Five stars can still be had for not much more especially if you are going with another person. Apartment / hostel doesn't always add up to be a good value

Hemingway got it right with "Never go on trips with anyone you do not love"
Though I usually would plan it where you meet up with friends on every leg, so you can connect a bit but also have your own personal time. Think longest time I'e enjoyed without issues would be maybe 5 days with close friends, anything else after a weekend I'm already a bit annoyed most of the time
