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.

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 mobilesupport@hostelworld.com with what we could have done better that would be awesome.

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
