Easy to use, gives me confidence in booking my hostel in advance

I found the link to HostelBooker.com when looking at various hostels to pick from for my upcoming trip to Costa Rica. I located what appeared to be the perfect hostel on TripAdvisor and I found the Hostel Bookers link on the main page.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could not only see more reviews on a hostel I had determined a winner, but it was possible to pick and reserve dates online before I ever step foot in the country.

In the past, I've gotten into the habit of identifying a few hostels as options for when I arrive because I'm not always sure where I'm going to end up, and not all locations take reservations so far out.

I think it's great that not only is the process to reserve a room online made simple and straightforward, but the the site only asks for a VERY reasonable 10% deposit. For hostels, this amount is not going to be a big deal at all. It makes me happy that I can go in for a hostel I think I might want before it fills up, but if I change my mind, it's not going to cause a cancellation fee.

Hopefully more great hostels out there get with the program!
