GET THIS APP IF YOU EVER GO TO EUROPE
This is the best app when your traveling. Hostels aren’t scary, dirty or unsafe. Hostels are the new hotels but cheaper! If you doubt it, just stay at one! I backpacked Europe for 3 weeks on the cheap. And every hostel was like a hotel. If you don't like people, GET YOUR OWN ROOM! It’s cheap! Nothing compared to the price of a hotel especially in high demand cities like Rome, Paris or Barcelona. Hostels are humbler than hotels for sure. They won’t have 1000 thread count sheets and a fridge with a mini bar. BUT! They’re clean, they’re friendly, they’re SUPER cheap. This app provides the best rating system of hostels. You like clean? This app will tell you which hostel is the cleanest. You like environment? This app tells you which hostels are the more lively ones. Get this app.

Best App for traveling!
Hostelworld has time and time again exceeded my expectations. It is by far the most useful app you could possibly have while traveling. Not only do they let you book hostels in advance but they let you know the period you have to cancel or change your reservation in case your travel plans have changed! They provide you with the best index of hostels all around the world and let their customers make the decisions about which Hostels are the best to stay in. You can read other reviews and look at hostel ratings and decide which one would be the best for you. Could not have traveled without Hostelworld and will continue to use it for a very long time
HostelWorld is a solid hotel booking application that allows users to easily book accommodations at any of the listed residences. The app provides all the information on listed hostels you would want to know whether it be prices, images, policies, details on the place itself and more. The app has user reviews to provide even more information to help better inform your decision. Search is easy with the ability to type in your destination, party and how long you plan to stay. Users can create accounts to better manage their travel allowing you to save locations as well as perform other activities. The app even works as a mini travel guide with the My Trips section giving you information on places you plan to visit.
