disappointing and misleading
I am disappointed with my experience using hostelbookers and will not use them again. From the bold print advertisement on their web, I incorrectly thought that I could cancel my reservation without losing any money at all, which is not at all accurate. Hostelbookers takes 10% of the total cost of your stay right up front. Furthermore, after I made my reservation I found a cheaper price for the same room at the same hotel at the Expedia.com web site.
