    It would have been good, but revealing my credit card details to this terrible hostel was disastrous for me.

    There have been a couple disappointments, but generally I find reviews on Hostelbookers to be valid and reliable.

    It's a quit place. And very well located. Near the Van Gogh museum, ReijkMuseum and Vondelpark. It has a tram station 100 mt far from the hostel. The only "but" is regard to the bad smell of cigarettes inside the room despite its not allowed to amoke in there.

    I was living in hostel when i was studying but this was the differnt experience I had because new roommate to whom we never know and to live 1 night that was really good experience for me

    Makes it really easy to find good hostels at reasonable prices! I love your site. My only complaint is that when you search as just 1 person, private rooms' prices are listed per-person rather than per-room. The easier way for customers would be to just list the price that 1 person alone would have to pay to book it (so 40 euros for a private double room, instead of 20 like it currently says.) The current way messes up the rankings when you sort by price.

    HostelBookers is a service I have used on a number of occasions and I have always been pleased with the service.

    The booking process was easy, but I chose the property based on the fact that it was supposedly cheaper than others. Then I was forced to pay extra on arrival.

    Hostelbookers was very simple and easy to use. Had no issues with my booking. Would definitelty recommend and use again to book accommodation. Very good prices

    I lost the email and ended up booking twice....but I'm sure that wasn't hostel bookers fault. So yep it was okay.

    Hostelbookers has been very helpful in my search for hostels this year. The ratings system and pictures made me feel comfortable booking hostels in foriegn cities.

    It was OK, I am usually very satisfied, but the breakfast that was promised, and the hostel itself made me question the quality of the properties that are listed in the site.

    I booked for a hostel in Negombo/Sri Lanka which did not exist at the specified address but HostelBookers did not refund the deposit I paid, even my email to hostelbookers was not anwered.

    close button does not work for iPads and the only recourse is to restart your computer. So, if you go to looks at pictures of the property, you cannot return to the main part of the property info

    Worth your time and money to spend your nights there if you want to interact with the historical side of Quito, which I liked much better than the New Quito.

    It is a good option to search and to book accomodation abroad, despite you have a down pay the moment you make the reservation.
