I don’t normally write reviews. But this app really warrants a 5 star rating.

I used this with my mate during interrailing around Europe and it enabled us to always find incredible places to stay.

It is easy to use with a system that easily allows me to tell it how many people I’m booking for, when I want to stay, and where. Beyond that I can choose a huge amount of filters to find an ideal place easily.

Once I’ve used the filters to find eligible places, it’s like being in a very user friendly candy shop of hostels. Ranking the hostels in a clear way, while also showing me photos and information as well as average room prices for my stay meant budgeting was a breeze.

Every place we went with the app was just as described and it really took all of the stress and hassle of booking out of the equation with the very easy to use in app booking system.

Often within five minutes I had found a brilliant place to stay, I knew where it was, what to expect, and had booked myself in all within the app.

This really takes so much stress out of travelling and makes me want to use hostels so much more because of how easy it all was!

A solid 5/5 for everything from design to user friendliness to capability.

Could improve a lot

This has the potential to me a really valuable app whilst I am travelling the globe. Unfortunately it doesn’t focus enough on the user experience providing the most practical information in a quick and easy way
• get rid of the wierd moving filter button
• put the map on the same screen as the results
• let the user immediately see how it is ordered and change it quickly. It is very useful to change the order by price and location!
• for me I want a hostel with a bar so I can socialise. That is as important to me as the price. This information needs to be one of the first displayed please.

I find myself just going online rather than use the app. Please make some improvements to its usability and focus on displaying the most valuable data first, then the less important

I truly love hostelworld even before the app but

but..however I am having some troubles.
Yahoo is not being honest with their users
I have even been phishing with fakes purchases. I am truly thankful with app store services because they noticed and warned me and other users about these situations. I love my hostelworld account however I am not being able to change my email account from the settings, so or I will have to create a new one or stop using it. The saddest in all this is that I will lose my account when I shut down my yahoo account besides I will lose all my memories from the places I had stayed for so many years. It is not secure having my credit cards data associated with an yahoo email account. I hope customer services will give me some positive answer.
