so easy 👌🏻💯

i love staying in hostels when I travel and Hostelworld makes it so convenient for my bookings and reservations. One time, my trip got postponed so I had to cancel my reservation. Hostelworld did that and refunded my payment back to card in less than 5 days 👍🏻

Scammed by app

It’s cool getting robbed by your app. We’re in Thailand where already everybody tries to scam every single tourist and now it’s low season, meaning that the prices are lower than usual for pretty much everything except on your app that still charges us the max price and sometimes even more than that. Nice!
On an improvement perspective if I filter on double room and sort prices it would be clever to sort the double room price and give me only those as if filtered on double room I don’t care about dorms prices at all.

Developer Response ,

Hi, thanks very much for your feedback. Hostelworld are constantly looking to improve the experience for our travellers, we will certainly take your feedback on board. Improving our filter feature is something we are looking at in future product enhancements.

Reviews must read

I rely to reviews people share on HW if I were to book a hostel. Only one thing is if the hostel has air-con or heater available or not available they should clearly mention it!!
