"...in Bratislava. -------------------------- Own Experience! -------------------------- My experience with hostelworld.com was always positive. I used the site to find and book accommodation in Spain, Italy, Germany, England and Ireland. The selection of hostels is great, they vary from cheap & grumpy to luxurious & incredibly expensive.

A Backpackers dream site

AdvantagesEasy to use, cheap booking fees, social networking site, covers the world

DisadvantagesDont use if you want an expensive, upmarket hotel

"As my status says I am currently busy planning a fantastic travelling experience. A friend that recently did the same kind of experience recommended this site to me. My girlfriend and myself went off making our plans and started using this site extensively. Signing up to the site was simple and only needed basic information about you, which included a contact number, address and email address. On the sites homepage it boosts 17,000 hostels in 168 ..."

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
