    the rating forms just started again and did not work for the last three places I stayed. But. it appears to be working now. Good job.

    Directions to hostel were appalling..."it's 10 minutes from the bus station". When travelling and often without wifi or gps, this is totally inadequate. This needs to improve when booking with HostelBookers.

    Well worth money, well-worn but clean and everything works. Please note no elevator!

    Okay, but the listings for a hotel for one person often show the per-person cost of a multi-person room. If I select "one person" as the number of people in the HostelBookers search, I don't want to see offerings that require more than one person!

    I spent 4 nights in this hostel and I will stay there again on my way back to Marrakech.

    It has been great so far. All my bookings have gone through without any problems. However, due to currency that Hostelbookers use (pounds), I always end up paying slightly more for the downpayment due to the currency difference (my card is in euros).

    VERY GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY! Of course it's not perfect but for a hostel they really provide good service in general. The staff made you feel cared for. I'd gladly recommend it to my travel friends and I would stay with them again when I travel back to Beijing. Good job Dragon King Hostel :) -- just a few more improvements and you'll totally rock!

    The staff was incredible and accomadating! Gave us great food, activity reccomendations! They made sure we were comfortable! Breakfast was simple but perfect. Wifi was very solid throughout hostel. Very clean and I would definitely stay again. Really nice vibe and atmosphere.

    HostelBookers is the best, you can compare the price and you can see the "distance from city centre", other hostel webside don't give this information directly.

    My experience with HostelBookers for Hostel Grand place was great, not so much for the hostel I stayed in in Paris (Aloha Hostel). Would not recommend that place to anyone.

    Unclear information about advance payment which according to the hostel is not an advance, they claim it's a HostelBookers fee.

    The site works, but the reviews that are 100 percent are gamed. And the do not focus enough on security, and more on party. They need to disclose they are associated with Hostelworld.

    The page showed almost everything I was looking for. Booking easy and comfortable. They should show the check-in times for each hostel, though, as they may vary.

    Need some updating about information and the services of some hostels. But mostly I have a good experience with HostelBookers.


    25 Oct 2014

    Everything was great except the inconvenience of lacking of an app that I could manage my reservation on mobile.

    Hard to describe as it was the hotels fault they cancelled booking without notifying me - not convinced that is hostel bookers fault.. but you might like to contact this place and tell them they need to be far more professional.

    Hostelbookers did a great job recommending this hostel. We had no problems upon our arrival.

    It was a very basic room, I just didn't feel very secure with a room that didn't have a lock on it.

  • Yasamin S Jamali

    Good, it was very easy to book my stay and I didn't have to pay any additional fees.

    HosteBookers staff is friendly and helpful, always willing to go the extra mile in searching for just the right accommodation.

    I only have a good experiences, and ratings on a hostelbookers.com always correctly describing hostel.

    Great. There was one time that the requirement of a passport was not prominently displayed though. Cost me my booking fee.

    I love using hoatelbookers and when they sent me their special 24 hour discount email I booked this hostel that same night.

    I like the website, which is easy in info & use the 12 % payment in advance is a bit steep paying in pounds means there is hidden costs since I'm living in Euro zone and competitor Hostelworld is indeed for free

    I'm very happy about the hostelBookers during my stay in Florence as the accommodation i reserved there through their site was amazing but had very bad experience with another accommodation Backpackers hostel in Pisa booked through hostelBookers as well. The Backpackers didn't describe itself honestly on website at all, re host was extremely rude and there were no facilities at all. Can describe that place as a dent if criminals

  • Sofia Vajenina

    Easy to navigate the website, I like how you only pay for the deposit and then the rest when you get to the place!

  • Jason Groom

    HostelBookers.com was great for the first booking, but when I left and needed to come back sadly they listed the hostel as full. HostelWorld showed open rooms so I ended up booking through their website for the extra night.
