HostelBookers Launches Site in 8 More Languages


HostelBookers has launched 8 new languages for non-English speaking customers, after its popularity continues to grow in the European Market.

This latest announcement comes on the back of the successful launch of the Spanish and German languages back in July.

Users will now be able to view the site in Danish, Dutch, French, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese and Swedish, taking the total number of languages available on the site up to 11.

HostelBookers has also launched multi-lingual blogs in Italian, French, Spanish and German providing useful tips and advice to travelers.

The company already has a multi-lingual customer services department, and further changes are expected in the near future, as the company continues to embrace  growing numbers of international customers.

David Smith, chief operating officer at HostelBookers, said: “The launch of the new languages will make the site more user-friendly and accessible for our ever growing international market. I am delighted with the progress we’ve made in 2009, and we have every reason to be optimistic going into 2010.”

In September HostelBookers were announced 5.1% cheaper on average than its nearest competitor, Hostelworld, after independent research carried out by Reed Business Insight.

The company currently features more than 16,000 hostels in over 3,000 destinations and is the only website in the industry not to charge a booking fee.
