Look Before You Book: HostelBookers Adds Street View
One of the UKs leading budget accommodation providers, HostelBookers.com, has added Google Street View to its website.
Customers will be able to see up-to-date 360° horizontal and 290° vertical panoramic views for many streets in the world – helping them explore the area in which they are planning to say and find the exact location of their hostel.
Street View will be available for hostels in countries including UK, US, the Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
To use Street View, visitors to HostelBookers can simply select the map and directions tab on a hostel’s profile page.
David Smith, Chief Operating Officer at HostelBookers, said: “The addition of Street View is the latest in a long line of modifications that ensure we provide our users with the very best customer experience and as much information as possible before they make a booking.”
Having launched a brand new website earlier in the year, Street View is just one example of HostelBookers’ efforts to enhance their website for customers. Other significant features include 360° hostel videos and hundreds of free destination guides.
HostelBookers features 14,000 hostels in 3,000 destinations worldwide and remains the only website in the industry not to charge a booking fee.
