    It's very Convenient for me to find a hostel around the world before I start to go somewhere, just use it to search hostel!

    Great, no problem whatsoever. Very easy and I liked that I only had to pay a little amount upfront.

    I love the the Grand corridors and high ceilings. Quite an amazing building, and has also a unique history. Walk to city within five to ten minutes.

    I was at first a little hesitant by some of the weird negative reviews of the place but needs must and I booked it all the same. In terms of location you can't get any better and as for the hostel itself it's not luxury but a perfect backpacker hostel. Most of the guests are polite and respectful to other guests and there is a great little community set up with those staying longer. The manager couldn't have been more helpful and the place really is one I would highly recommend

    I have been booking with hostelbookers for 2 years in many different countries and I almost alway have been an Amazon experience.

    Hostelbookers = Few clicks to reach the target = have nice stay in a place you want to relax/sleep.

    Grand but get rid of that " Was HostelBookers promoted at the hostel?" question or at least include a " I didn't notice " option to answer it. What does it mean anyway? Are you asking whether or not hostels are asking people to book on your site or if they have posters up or something. It's ridiculous.

  • alan browne

    29 Mar 2015

    Good apart from asking " Was HostelBookers promoted at the hostel?" on this page. That is a stupid question. I have better things to be doing on my travels than looking out for a hostelbookers sign or something. At least include a " I don't know " or " I didn't notice " option for this question

    A range of accommodations which caters to the "older" age range as well as gap year backpackers!

  • Kelly Snyders

    Information is often wrong (locations on map, room prices etc...) although this is obviously the fault of the hostels. I find hostels don't like dealing with reservations through Hostelbookers, so it can often be a frustrating experience. But, prices are ALWAYS cheaper than Hostelworld, often by a significantly large amount, and so I almost always use Hostelbookers.

  • Olivia Colish

    28 Mar 2015

    Pretty easy with on line reservations and when I showed up at the hostel, they had my name and all my info.

  • Ganna Stavyts`ka

    Exept this last bad expreience, I haved had a nice experience with the HostelBookers in general. I travelled to the American West booking my hostels with HostelBookers.

  • James Cooke

    I travel a lot & always seem to find good hostels on the site wherever I travel.

  • Christian der Kinderen

    It would be more useful if we did not have to contact the hostel directly to make alterations to our itinerary and could be refunded deposits made.

  • Rodrigo Guadarrama Lara

    27 Mar 2015

    Easy and straighforward, what a person needs when searching for a property, no complications.

  • Jason White

    27 Mar 2015

    It's ok. Could have better policy for cancelations, reviews are inflated compared to other sites.

  • Andrew Simpson

    27 Mar 2015

    Great. I think I saved a huge amount booking early as the advertised room rate when we arrived was €300 and I only paid €85 (5 months in advance).

  • Eva Marie Hering

    27 Mar 2015

    prices should be listed in local currency and own currency to know how much the hostels will charge

  • José Alejandro tienda Ramírez

    27 Mar 2015

    So far so good! I would just add one feature to the website that in my case would be very helpful... When you select a city, you can sort all results by price, rating, etc... But just from that city. In my case, sometimes I plan my route according to hostel options so if I could sort them by country and not just city, I could see which cities in that country have the lowest prices, highest ratings, etc... And plan my travel route accordingly. Hope you can add that feature in the future.

    It was good. Just that I live in Ireland and pai with my euro debit card and was charged effectively more for the deposit due to the exchange rate as you are actually charged in pounds which I wasn't aware of. I tried to contact HB through your website but no one returned my messge. Then sent an email to customer services which returned a response within a few days

  • Merinda Backway

    it was ok, I didn't receive my confirmation letter so had to contact for it, it was sent a few days later so ok

    I choose this guest house due to location,near to museum of An Jung-geun,an Korean patriot and cleanness,good facilities like an equipped with full kitchen. I was assigned an room at basement floor. Although it didn't have room window I really felt comfortable to stay there. In the room,"Ondol",Korean floor heating system always worked well,which took me to good sleep every night. Shower room were very spacious,but may be a bit cold during winter season due to its stone walls and floor. Nissa,the only staff of the guest house was very kind and helpful. We cooked curry at a night together,and ate it midnight. I visited many places in Seoul like Myong dong,History museum,Anh chang ho memorial hall,Tapgol Park,but the dinner time was one of my unforgettable memory in Seoul. On the day of my departure,I had a coffee and some sweets with Nissa and Jinny,owner of the guest house and their friends at the living room. They treated me as a real ,old friend. This was also unforgettable memory. I'm very glad I get to know these trustable,honest people. I have a plan to visit Seoul in August. I'm sure to stay Bodeum at the time again.

    Has been a great service for finding places to stay that have so far been accurate in descriptions and information. People seem to give honest accounts of the good and bad and that is nice to be able to read and make decisions based on that.

  • Melanie Davidson

    The currency we received our pricing in was in pounds for some reason, which when we got to the hostel was a bit confusing as they needed to convert that to either US dollars or the local currency. I am not too sure why our pricing kept coming up in pounds on our smart phones, but it proved to be a bit difficult throughout our travels

    HostelBookers has been fantastic and I will definitely use the site in future as I have another 3 months backpacking travel ahead of me from today onwards.

  • Mami Kawamura

    Basically it was easy and straight away. It would be much better if this booking service allows the e-ticket (e.g. Passbook)
