Great for last minute booking anywhere in the world.
I used the site to book a couple of last minute hostels as my plans changed. The process was quick and easy and told me how much of the outstanding balance was owed on arrival. Was a great relief off my shoulders to find hostels with so many reviews. I could filter them down to criteria specific to me, such as being a 'single' traveler. This helped me pick the right hostel that people like myself were going to or had been to.
