I was directed to HostelBookers via a comparison site. HostelBookers had great information on the hotel, as well as photos and reviews.
My favourite things about HB though, was that in my confirmation email they provided information on the best way to get to/from the Airport to/from the hostel - which is second to none, we otherwise would have ended up forking out for a taxi and paying way over the odds!
Will definitely be using again!
I looked at several different sites to find the best hostel for my trip and only Hostelbookers had cheap prices for hostels in a central location. The site was really simple to use and didn't have any hidden fees. Got a better deal than if I'd booked direct through the hostel.
I have started using hostelbookers.com every time I book a hostel, which Is going to be often these days as I'm on a working holiday year in Australia. It convenient and easy to find what you're looking for. The information about the hostel and prices. They got a returning customer now!
Hostelbookers provides a really easy way of searching all the hostels in a large area. It's simple to tell whether or not a hostel is safe, easy to find, clean etc. And booking came with no headaches whatsoever. It's a great way to find a place to stay on a budget!
Before using HostelBookers, I'd never used any online accommodation booking site. I was a bit unsure of what to expect. However, I found HostelBookers really simple to navigate. It was easy to make a search, modify search options, sort results, and find the right kind of accommodation for my needs and budget. The reviews section also makes it easy to see what others thought of the accommodation, which is really helpful when deciding which option to go with. Thanks HostelBookers for making my holiday that little bit easier to plan!
Easy for search and check in your hotel, but i had problems in the payment, for some reason my first credit card was not accepted
The website is been very helpful in the searching for the right place to stay, when I had been looking for different places according to my budget, location, access, specific needs such as (laundry, kitchen, pool, etc) and to review other experiences.
The web site is very easy to use and provides acquire info.
If you want a very easy, quick and effective way to book your accommodation in most cities in the world, I really recommend HostelBookers.
I advise you to read their customers reviews carefully before booking. The price is close to what the hostel propose even if I saw a slight difference on two hostels websites which propose a better price already, But I decided to spent a few cents more to book fast and securely... I was in NYC, in Zadar-Croatia, in Zagreb hostels thanks to hostelbookers: these three choices were done easily thanks to the reviews. And it was great 3 times.
Today I received a petition from NYC hostel I was and the City mayor made a law which aims to close hostels in the Big Apple. It's really sad. I hope my signature will help them to stay open. Hotelbookers is a part of this reality which allows people with low budget to realise their dreams. And I wish it will stay the same a long time.
Habe ein Hotel in Madrid gebucht. 2 Nächte für 110 €, auf allen anderen Portalen kostet der Aufenthalt 234 €. Ich bin sehr gespannt, welches Zimmer ich am Ende erhalten werde - bin noch etwas mißtrauisch. Aber über 100 € gespart.
Voila comment je pourrait résumer le site, aucun soucis rencontrer, on peut facilement comparer les logements entre eux. Site facile d'utilisation, je n'ai rencontré aucun soucis et je le réutiliserai pour mes prochaines vacances.
I made an error and booked the wrong place. Hostelbookers charge 10% upfront. Emailed the hostel directly (within less than 10 minutes) and they processed a quick cancellation. Emailed hostelbookers (around the same time) and they acknowledged the cancellation, but refused to refund the 10% per their T&Cs, The hostel themselves emailed hostelbookers.com and the website (and it was their Customer Service Team Leader who handled this) *still* refused to refund. Very few companies would be as petty. Yes, I made a mistake, but with the timing of everything it seemed reasonable to ask for a refund - the hostel agreed. So if neither myself nor the hostel get the 10% payment that I made, and it goes to hostelbookers.com (for doing nothing I might add)... Another word for that is? A booking fee. My advice to you would be to save yourself the hassle (and fees) and book directly with the hostel.
Pretty much it: book the hostel, no commission or other fee (seriously, 2$ every time? I'm a backpacker, 2$ is my breakfast budget!). No difficulties whatsoever. Plus: funny, entertaining placards in the hostel I'm currently in (Art Hostel in Lviv). Easiest as it gets.
Whenever I'm looking for accommodation overseas, HotelBookers is my first stop. Known to have better rates than HostelWorld almost all the time, there's no reason to go anywhere else. The website layout is simple and easy to navigate making the whole booking process a breeze.
La página de hostelbookers es muy fácil de usar, generalmente tiene más disponibilidad de habitaciones que hostelworld. Si comparas precios, es mucho más barato que cualquier otra página de la competencia ej: una habitación me salia 30 euros aprox en un sitio y en hostelbookers 25, más el no pago de fees. He usado el servicio para varios viajes y jamás me ha pasado que un hostal o no le haya llegado la reserva o haya habido un problema. La recomiendo 100%
Mit Hostelbookers ist es sehr einfach, gute und günstige Hostels auf der ganzen Welt zu buchen. Alles läuft richtig gut ab, die Buchung war bisher immer zuverlässig und wir haben in tollen Hostels übernachtet, da auch die Hostelbewertungen und Empfehlungen zutrafen.
I have just experienced an easy and friendly way to book accomodation in a very straight forward manner. Only paying 10 % of the total booking meant I didn't feel pressured to commit to anything I didn't want, and yet had the advantage of a secure booking.
Website is my go-to site for booking hostels while I'm travelling.
user-friendly website, more comprehensive info included for each accommodation making it easy to decide which is which ... no booking fees and what you see is what you pay! well done folks and keep good deals coming ... rain or shine!!
So happy that this website popped up on Google. When typing my simple search terms, I didn't think I would get good results. Everything was informative and easy to follow. Some hostel booking sites are flashy, yet never provide the fine print which leads to frustrating surprises at the confirmation page or on the day you arrive. This one was trustworthy and honest. Thanks for being so user-friendly and putting a smile on my face when I realized I was saving money and increasing travel experience by booking a hostel in an uncommon area.
Having never booked any accommodation online before, I was a little worried about finding hostels for my stay in Europe. However, HostelBookers was extremely easy to navigate, had no booking fees, and made it simple to find hostels which suited my needs. It is easy to sort search results, and all accommodation is linked with reviews and recommendations to make it easy to see how satisfied others were with the accommodation they stayed at. Overall, a fantastic site to use! I have used it twice so far, and plan to continue using it in the future :)
awesome site, organised well, easy to use, customer service email enquiry was promptly responded to when I was in Milan and I had issues with a hostel I'd booked through hostel bookers, i've booked with these guys on every trip so have made literally 40+ bookings through them before.
Enjoy being in Edinburgh's best location & being at the very heart of the city.
