HB Listed prices on hostels page which the hostels did not ever have, as I even viewed with the hostels on the HB booking system and when emailed several times to HB asking why they didn't fixed never responded so had to have credit card reverse charges.
Truly appalling I really want to use HostelBookers because they don't screw you on exchange rates like HostelWorld does but this app is so bad that I never do. It basically just loads some horribly optimized mobile website that doesn't seem to cache anything so it has to reload from scratch every time you launch it including this dumb ferris wheel background image that I've gotten used to seeing load line by line on slow mobile connections all over the 3rd world.
Integrate google wallet please. It would be really nice to pay with Google wallet. CAUTION : the initial shown prices are mostly lower than what the actual price of the free rooms is. Make a feature to locate automatically nearly hostels). Add guest houses as well. . Thanks.
Ok, when it finally opens Once it opens its ok but can be stuck loading the initial search screen for literally Minutes! Fix that and we might be getting somewhere...
Rarely will it open Almost never will it open without a long delay...disappointing maybe even two stars
2nd use - still waiting for the app to open Works great... but takes forever to open! Really frustrating..
