    Great, but you don't have enough listings. To stay near Sepilok I had to go with Hostelworld. Also 12 percent is too much and probably leaves the customer overcharged compared to 10 percent.

    It was by far the easiest way to find a place to sleep. I've been traveling around Europe and as I came to France I looked at hostelbookers and found St Christopher's at first sight and booked in less than 5 minutes.

    My only issue with hostelbookers is that it seems as though everytime I book a room the hostel has trouble locating it. Also if I want to change my reservation or make modifications I have to go through hostelbookers..its just very inconvient!

    I like the hostelbookers' sort function works. It makes it easy for me to find what I'm looking for. I've tried hostelworld and venere, and had had problems with both. I'll stick with Hostelbookers.

    Good but the qualification that exists on the page is higher than the one in hostelword which in my opinion is more accurate

    It is really good that you can compare the available Hostels, sometimes the information provided is not up to date. E.g. free WiFi etc, which are criteria for searching a hostel. A nice surprise though once you arrive

    The manager of the hostel couldn't find our reservation because of problem with the reservation system. I was desperate, because I had nowhere to sleep, so I send an email to you. You respond my email a week later, if I would stayed waiting for your response I would have been sleeping in the beach...

    I liked the hostel. The location is a bit amiguous, you have to walk up a hill - but you get rewarded by a nice view over the lake :-).

    When I arrived they had no record of my booking and put me and my girlfriend in another hostel for one night? The other place was terrible, Deco Walk Hostel. There was room for us after this first night.

    Really good overview of all the available Hostels in a city. With the rating system and the commentary section one can immediately see which Hostel is the best for oneself.

    I've used hostelbookers many times. Usually it's good. This place however was bad. And there were way more places available on arrival vs what hostel bookers said there was.

    Excellent. We have used them all through our trip in the UK and Europe. They are reliable and only a deposit is needed. We accidentally double booked and had to cancel, they replied to our email straight awày and cancelled one booking without hassle. Highly reccommend this site.

    Very informative with widespread, worldwide accomodation offers. Booking is easy & every booking over the past years was successful.

  • Denise Ferreira

    As always, very friendly and helpful. Just one problem. when booking a hostel very prompt, but to change or make amendment to a booking a bit slowly, So one needs to keeping calling and inquiring, which it was a bit annoying.
