The bargain holidayer's Mecca

AdvantagesComprehensive, easily navigated

DisadvantagesDon't bother if you want a Ritz-esque experience

"I came across hostelworld whilst browsing the Internet for an affordable place to stay in Dublin on New Year's Eve given that hotel prices appeared to double for that night. I found its search facility excellent - it immediately offered me a wide range of hostels that fitted the criteria I had entered; whilst going on to display the availability of beds in that particular property. Its database apparently boasts over 10,000 hostels worldwide, so ..." Read review
