    always great. All the reservations were valid and I did not have any problems, although usually at the destination I had to pay 5-10% on top of the sum indicated by hostelbookers.

    I love love love HostelBookers. We are backpacking for six to nine months and I have used HostelBookers to book 80% of my accommodations. I would describe my experience as extremely positive.

    Easy although the app doesn't show a map of all the properties. This would be better for locating where hostels are.

    Quick and easy to compare prices. Wish you had an overall map showing all prices in the locations like HostelWorld to compare best price in best location easily

    Easy to use, great with updates and reminders and good that you only usually have to put down a deposit and don't pay the rest until you check in.

    My reservation evidently got lost somewhere between hostelbookers and Ginger Monkey. I had the confirmation email, but staff were unaware of my reservation.

    Did not advertise the city tax clearly enough. However, the instructions for directions to the hostel where very good and useful.

    accomodation very basic, but everything you need. clean bed sheets and free tea and coffee, seemed clean. small unisex bathroom for all the travelers(max 19) receptionist was not very friendly. great location in the old city, nights have been quiet. for the price it's ok!
