Without a doubt, my first port of call when I book anywhere is to go to hostelbookers. The website is so easy to use, I very rarely encounter any problems apart from deciding which hostel to choose haha!
The recommended hostels are excellent and generally the descriptions are very accurate (obviously a few exceptions to the rule but hey, that's life!)
