HostelWorld has been making unauthorized charges to my debit card. I suggest anyone who has been using the Hostel World app to check your Bank Statement for additional unauthorized charges. HostelWorld does provide a service to make themselves look legit but they also make unauthorized charges to debit and credit cards. I have Life Lock Identity Theft which also protects against this and they will usually give the Offending company a small opportunity to return what was stolen.
Used to be better. Can't check details of bookings, particularly what kind of room has been booked, using the app.
No offline access to bookings (critical in locations with no wifi). Does not store my details from booking to booking. Prompts me for my password everytime I have to book.
Booked a private room in Rome, very informative about dorms, rooms, attractions, etc. Was close to main rail station which I found important. Easy app to use.
No customer service for help
Wicked helpful for finding places to stay on the cheap in new cities.
