Useful but with annoying design flaws I have use it a lot lately and the ability to search, book, access the bookings and seen them in a map is definitely very useful but it has annoying things. You cannot access the details of the hostel offline from your bookings, just the very very basic information, it always try to refresh (slow, with loading screen) first from the internet it's not good if you have 2/3g and it just let you choose limited predefined arrival times so if you arrive at 5am you have no way to let the hostel know from the app.
1/ Huge bandwidth required; App is very slow on wifi and expensive on mobile data. Needs a low data option? 2/Fake low prices don't reflect the actual cost of booking and if you have to book an entire room, making the search by price mode very misleading and time consuming. Needs a total price search option? Ok so the search by price option was simply removed.. what a clever solution. OK its back now. But it still has no relation to the actual cost. In order the price for 1 week is 9 euros per night then 10,10,11,12,12,12,13,14,15,16,16 but the total price is 80,140,154,182,155, ,487,200,190,136,1243!!,190,,135,etc etc You have to check them all to find a good cheap one which takes forever on slow internet. You can see the second cheapest so far was 12th not 2nd when listed by price. These two issues mean it takes about an hour to book the cheapest good hostel on slow hostel wifi or cellphone internet, and then because by the time you figure out which one is a good deal its sometimes booked... If I book a hotel with your competitors because there is no nearby hostel it's always the total actual price and I quickly find a good deal even on cellphone internet.. why not here?
Great app, essential at times This app is essential when travelling. You get location and price info of a variety of local accommodation and can easily book rooms. This was very useful and saves a huge amount of stress. The PayPal option and registering it to your home country also prevent international card charges on bookings. The app isn't perfect but it's 5 star when you arrive late at night in a dangerous city and don't have anywhere to go.
Useful and Reliable Haven't had a single problem with the app. Hostels are great. Only complaint is that when you search a city the filtera on the bottom for price abd rating dont always appear or sometimes disappear after entering a hostel
Must have for travellers :) This is a must for travellers, really useful and practical, you can search and book the hostels from the app, the map view is also great. It could use some more advance filters (for example, exclude hostels that require minimal number of nights, etc.). Keep up the good work!
Great app This is my go to app whilst on the road. Could do with making more information on hostels available offline though. Especially if you have booked them.
- The app has been revamped with the beautiful new design extending through to more screens
- Searching has been made easier with a new ‘Saved Searches’ feature - we remember your last five searches so you don’t have to
- Minor bugs have been ironed out
Amazing hotel deals for tonight + no credit card needed on selected properties!
Book great value hostels and cheap hotels, close to what you want to see and do.
