I have used Hostelworld to find a accommodation at least five years ago. It's ranking system of individual hostel is always equivalent to the quality of the hostel! Most staffs I met in hostels are always friendly and helpful. It's always a joyful experience to use the Hostelworld web site.
The information in the website is well organized, so it is really easy to find what I want.
You should provide more details on facilities, which one is free or need to pay e.g. luggage storage, locker.
This is the best site for booking hostels because you get real reviews from real travellers. Hostelworld requires you actually stay at the lodging you are reviewing. This is different than sites like Trip Advisor where anyone can place a reveiw of any site. I have used these reviews and have never been disappointed by this site. It is a model other sites should follow but as far as I know none have. My hats off to hostelworld.
Hostels on Hostelworld are never the same. There are excellent ones and bad ones. Booking on Hostelworld is pretty easy. So is changing of bookings.
Mostly the reviews of a hostel are correct. When there are only a few reviews then they can differ from your own experience.
But you can't make hostelworld responsible for the quality of a hostel. When you pick the cheapest one then it just is not the one with the highest quality.
I myself was always satisfied with hostelworld.
I haven't had any problems with bookings, and I hope to see Hostelworld grow and offer more accomodations worldwide. So I don't need to bother myself with other websites looking for affordable and good accomodations
Since past many years of travelling over 30+ countries, I've used the HostelWorld.com site to book hostels which always met my expectations. The bad reviews of a hostel are not deleted so you have a fair chance of picking the right place for you after reading user reviews. Can't go wrong.
I thank HostelWorld team for keeping their site and service transparent.
My mum showed me hostel world a couple of years ago. She used to take bookings for a hostel she helped run.
Now that I'm old enough to go travelling I always use hostel world to book my hostels. I trust the reviews and I think it's much more user friendly than hostel bookers /booking or agoda.
I also like that you can make a personalized account and you can show others where you have traveled! :) It makes it feel more special!
You can always get what you expect if booking via Hostelworld.com.
I always check it if visiting the city or town for the first time. You can find a lot of affordable places to stay with comments from tourists all over the world. Sometimes the selection is not big enough for some cities, but they getting more and more places onboard.
I recommend Hostelworld for everyone that is looking for an easy, quick and safe way to find a place with a good value for price in his/her destination. The most useful part are the reviews from other travelers that visited the same property, The pictures are not always representative of the truth.
Great and efficient way of finding great hostels all over the world; don't have a single complaint. It's quick and easy.
to make bookings i used booking.com and hostelword.com. the different between botth is that hostelworld is more effective in finding hostels. its easy in use and has a great amount of extra information about the facilities.
Useful and clear service.
But I had a (minor) during my last booking: I booked an hostel in China, and I did not recieve the address in Chinese, although I did recieve the address in Chinese for my previous bookings. Maybe the hostel did not communicate its address in Chinese…
During the booking process, we have to fill in our nationality and cell phone number. The website could use the information we gave when we signed up. This would save some time.
I simply think that there is no better way to find a place to stay wherever! It's easy, reliable and practical. You have everything you need on one place and not just info about accommodation buy also about the city you will stay in.
Hostelworld is very good per se although once I received a confirmed booking and the hostel itself phoned me to tell me that there had been a mistake - not theirs - and that I could not have my deposit refunded because Hostelworld had already kept it. I had not taken out insurance against cancelling that booking - I had to as I had to find another hostel in the same town for those dates. The Chinese guy at the hostel offered to refund me the money from his own pocket so of course I didn't bother to take him up on that. His kind offer made up for the Hostelworld mistake. And maybe it was the hostel's mistake, anyway. I have made tons of bookings in China through Hostelworld.com and Hostelbookers.com and this is the only time anything has gone wrong - that had anything to do with Hostelworld, that is. Usually the hostels are exactly what they say on the tin. Whether the hostel is good or not usually depends on the other hostellers, who can be noisy, and most hostels in China have paper thin walls. The service in China can also vary, depending on whether or not they have more than one person working in the kitchen/cafe. I have had to wait half an hour for a banana while someone's eggs and bacon was being cooked!!!
It's my first port of call when needing accommodation when travelling! It has loads of great recommendations, is fully transparent with reviews good and bad and is easily navigable. I've always been happy with it!
Hostelworld are awesome and and easy to use, so much so that most hostels use them specifically for online bookings, they are reliable, and although there is a $1 fee, this can be avoided if you become a member,
their database of hostels is second to none, and the user reviews are generally fairly reliable on their site.
Hostelworld is a great service, very helpful and easy-to-use. I always book through them. Even though it would be nice if they had longer lasting fee-free bonuses, it's still the most convenient search engine for any accomodation anywhere in the world. Would go with it anytime!
In addition to the good usability of the website, I trust in the company. I booked hostels many times and never have problems. The last time I need to book a hotel in another website, when I arrived the place it was full already (an addition that I had to pay all the price by internet while booking).
I love Hostelworld.com, I always use them when I need to book a hostel. They have very thorough information and reviews from people who have recently stayed at the properties. I would use and recommend them without question.

Hostelworld have been our lifeline whilst traveling around China during the past 4 years. We have used them to book accommodation from the east coast of China to the very west of the country in Kashgar. We have never had a problem with the booking and have always turned up to our hostels and been expected by the staff. I would definitely recommend Hostelworld to friends and family,
I usually like Hostrlworld. But I am on a big trip and I had a reservation fail because of the data shown on Hostelworld. They just answered me: talk to the hostel.
