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.
Just do it-Nike
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.
Inflated rating system and no liability
I made a booking for 3 nights, but the hostel was a dump so I left after night 1. I tried to get a full refund of the remaining two nights from the hostel but was given a partial refund bc they said they have to pay Hostel world a booking fee(which makes sense). I tried to solicit Hostel Worlds help and they provided no assistance and took no responsibility for what is ranked as a “Very Good” hostel on their site. They did not refund me the portion which is their booking fee for the 2 nights I didn’t stay (total $22). So I ended up paying hostel world 2 nights worth of booking fees for nights I did not stay there. Also The lowest possible ranking on their app is a 2. Pretty sure there are numbers lower than that... Lesson learned: If you see a hostel you want to stay at on Hostel World don’t book it through their site. You will save money by booking directly with the hostel and you will have more rights to your money
Developer Response ,
Hi, sorry to hear about your recent experience.
We pride ourselves on the review system so that each hostel is reviewed by our Hostelworld community and gives an accurate depiction to travellers looking to book their next trip. Free cancellation bookings work 7 days before booking so this is another option you have and allows you to cancel free of charge as long as it is 7 days before your booking.
We would love to hear more about your experience so that this doesn't happen in the future, if you would like to email email@example.com with what we could have done better that would be awesome.
