Intrusive to privacy; not only do I now have targeted ads in my web browser, I receive non-stop reminders and notifications from the app that I wish I could disable. I recommend this app for FINDING hostels to then book on relevant hostel websites (cheaper, less intrusive and less misleading). I mean the app isn't bad, UI is definitely neat and all.
'DON'T SUFFER FROM FOMO IN...' Here's an idea. You're a booking app. That's it. No more, no less. Don't send me all of your bull on the run into my stay somewhere. It's absurd. You're not a social media app...You're a booking platform.
Good usability but could be great with a few more booking details available offline. Giving it 3 stars because it badly needs persistent login. Having to dig out my password before booking feels less secure than having the app logged in persistently.
Hostelword is easy to use and finds much better deals than just searching online on your own. I've used them twice in the past few weeks and have had zero issues. Highly recommend!
I have really liked using Hostel world's app. It's very helpful in finding a good place to stay whether for one night or a week stay. However, it doesn't have all accomodation options for a city, so it is a good app to have in partner with others like airbnb or trivago. Would recommend to use, especially if you're doing a long trip in multiple different cities!
Tried to cancel a reservation a week in advance. Paid extra for refundable deposit. Used app to do so. The cancel button loaded a message saying "are you sure..." clicked yes. The cancel button disappeared. A week later get a notification that I was ready to check in to a room I did not want. Had to contact hostel directly and was charged a night. Canceled another hostel to check and had same issue. Used their help support and was basically told there was nothing they could do and tough luck. Bummer because I liked this app for ease of canceling plans, allowed me to feel secure in having a room but open to change. Felt fair to pay a few bucks for a deposit for that service. But when their app is glitchy they did nothing to make it up. Use another app.
Maintenance release to fix some bugs.
