Great for backpacking Europe My wife and I recently returned from backpacking Europe. We used Hostel world all over the place. The app makes finding lodging in advance or on the fly a breeze. The only 2 things that would make it better would be the ability to search by the type of bed you want, ex. Single, double, dorm. More importantly I'd rate 5 stars for the ability to pay through the app. Some hostels take cash only after the deposit. I'd rather pay through the app, especially when crossing from one currency to another.
Relatively Good app This is a good and easy app for finding hostels. Some glitches though said I had booked hostels when I didn't even have the app downloaded at the time and it saved my card even though I have yet to select it as an option, brings up questions of security.
Very handy Of the booking apps this one (and it's in the name) has the best hostel guide of all. My only problem is the over secure password which I have to reset every time my phone restarts because I can never remember it's - one number, one upper case, one lower case and a symbol.
Good, room for improvement Love this app, but the only thing I wish you could do is filter by type of bed/bedroom you are looking for. If I was traveling alone and needed a dorm bed, it would be perfect, but my husband and I want private rooms and I have to click into every hostel individually to find out if they even have a private room available and how much it is. The advertised price is always for dorm beds. It just makes the search process take a lot longer. Still worth downloading!
So very useful Takes much of the work out of backpacking as it's easy to find hostels in the precise area you require and check their quality through the accompanying reviews.
Can't fault it! I travel a lot and use the app for most of my bookings, I have never had any issues and find it really easy to use. The fact that you can manage your bookings on the app makes me use it over hostel bookers
At Hostelworld we want our customers to have the best experiences... So we have revamped our app with a fresh, new, material design feel. The app now boasts innovative features such as Floating Action Buttons, heavily featured ‘card’ designs as well as transitions and animations between elements and screens. Now you can enjoy a seamless user experience when booking your next hostel adventure.
We’ve also fixed the Credit Card Scanner and some other minor bugs have been ironed out.
Amazing hotel deals for tonight + no credit card needed on selected properties!
