Really useful app that has helped me book stays in the most amazing places. Tells you all the things you need to know about a hostel and had reviews to help you choose the best one. The only thing is that there is a kind of confusing option when you book to choose "non-flexible booking" which means if you cancel or change your booking they keep your deposit. Usually doing "standard flexible booking" is free or very cheap, like $1USD a night, so obviously why wouldn't you choose that option? I made the mistake of booking two places with non-flexible booking by accident, then had to change, my booking and got charged a total of $50USD because I had booked multiple nights for multiple people. However, I complained to customer service and they were kind enough to refund my deposit. Very understanding and helpful customer service.
Need to be able to show what type of bed and room you want to stay in.. this week i wanted two double beds so me and my friend to stay together.. last week i just needed the single bed... sometimes i will want a queen, sometimes ill just stay in a 6 bed dorm... would be good to have this feature so you can filter
Great App! Lots of reviews to make up your mind, really like the flexible protection for the deposits paid, and best of all simple to navigate!
Bad app You only seem to be able to search via cities or towns and you have to use specific dates. I can find a browsing function where hostels are shown on a map and you can just look at them without knowing any dates. Much work needs to be done to improve this app!
Mostly good - one major annoyance This is a really good app with the exception of one big annoyance - the map view feature continually zooms out to show the whole world and then you have to keep zooming all the way back in to see a local area. Very frustrating! Apart from that problem it is good.
Crap app I open anothers hotel booking apps with no problem while this app keep crashing whenever I search hostel. Uninstalled it without hesitation then.
