HostelBookers is so easy and straight forward to use. Having worked as a manager in a very busy Auckland Hostel for quite some time we often found that HostelBookers brought in a high majority of our clientelle. It is efficient, and easy to use, people from all over the world can use it for wherever they want to go. Just two notes about functionality; 1. The currency can only be changed when you actually look into a hostel instead of on the home page which is slightly confusing, especially for people travelling away from their home country eg. EUR or GBP is useless when AUD is required in Australia but its too hard to change the currency on the search page/home page etc (this was also a slight sticking point when customers arrived at reception and thought their stay was a lot cheaper than it actually was! 2. The prices listed on the search results page were often quite different to those on the individual hostels pages. Something that was advertised as $32.50 on one page was suddenly $35.5 on the next? The consistency for these seemed lacking, meaning finding the correct price was time consuming as the advertised price was often the false one.
But otherwise I could not rate this website higher. It is merely those small technical hitches than can be sorted no problem. Top website and i use it every time I travel (being in the industry you know where the best value lies and this website makes you feel like you're getting industry deals!)
