5p Summer Beds for 5 Years of HostelBookers


To celebrate its fifth birthday, HostelBookers is running a special offer – beach hostel beds in five popular European destinations will cost just 5p a night.

The 5p beds can be booked from 1 to 5 June, with 50 beds going on sale every day during this week at 2pm GMT. There are no hidden costs or strings attached – travellers really will pay just 5p a night.
This summer holiday deal will be available on a total of 250 beds at popular hostels in Barcelona, Valencia, Corfu, Alghero (Sardinia) and Santorini, for travel between from 6 and 10 July 2009.
From the bustling city beaches of Barcelona and Valencia to the glitzy resort of Alghero, the discos of Corfu and laid-back Santorini, HostelBookers is offering customers the chance to book their perfect summer break for a fraction of the normal price.
The five beach hostels participating in the birthday offer are Centric Point in Barcelona, Purple Nest in Valencia, Sunrock Backpackers Hostel in Corfu, Hostel D'Alguer in Alghero and Santorini Hostel in Santorini. All the hostels are well-equipped and offer a fantastic base for exnjoying each of these five Mediterranean destinations.
David Smith, Chief Operating Officer of HostelBookers, said, “We’ve had a phenomenal five years at HostelBookers, and experienced unprecedented growth. This is the first time we have run a promotion on this scale but our anniversary felt like the perfect time – it’s a way to say thank you to all our customers, and give a little something back, after all their help over the years.”
HostelBookers is also running a birthday competition – they’ll be giving away 20 ‘presents’ to customers, including £500 in cash, an ASUS 701SD Travel Laptop and a Canon Ixus 85 Digital Camera.
