Come on then, let's look at the 7 simple reasons for choosing Hostelz.com over any other hostel aggregate and booking website out there.
Check our About Us page for more information about what we do.
1. Hostels and Rating Scores from ALL Hostel Booking Websites
Each hostel booking website only lists a portion of the hostels that are out there.
We combine information from all of them on one website. You no longer have to search tons of websites when looking for the right hostel for you.
Hostelz now stands to be the only comprehensive worldwide hostels database there is.
We compare prices and collect review data from these major booking websites:
2. Thousands More Hostels (that aren't on any of the booking websites)
Did you know that there are thousands of great hostels that don't use booking websites?!
Hostelz.com is the only worldwide hostel guide that lists ALL hostels (for free).
We list phone numbers and websites for the hostels so you can contact them directly (none of the hostel booking websites would do that). We are a genuine hostel guide and we think it's important to include all of your options in any given destination.
3. Guest Ratings and Reviews (+ real photos)
We have the most genuine and reliable reviews from guests, and also our own full length, detailed reviews with photos taken by the reviewer to show what the hostel really looks like on an average day.
This does not have to mean the hostel is actually "faking" photos or anything. Not at all. We all know that businesses show the best photos to attract you as a client. Fair enough and it only makes sense. Our photos taken by our reviewers simply show the daily hostel life.
We also combine ratings from all of the reviews, and from other websites, to calculate the ultimate Overall Combined Score for each hostel.
We never allow hostels to censor their own reviews. We believe you should be able to read everyone's opinions about every hostel, both good and bad.
4. Instant Price Comparison
We show you the current prices in all of the booking systems at once so that you can make your booking on whichever site has the lowest price.
Because prices vary between the booking sites, you can often save >20% off the price of the same bed or room.
So you know you'll always get the hostel you want at the cheapest price when you use Hostelz.com.
Let us have a look at this example. It is a hostel in Florence, Italy. Here we compare for you the prices on the three major booking sites. These are Hostelworld, Hostelsclub and Booking.com
As you can see, the cheapest price on Hostelsclub and Booking.com is 28€. On Hostelworld on the other hand you can book for 25.20€. This is a difference of 2.80€ for each night you stay.
I am sure you have more fun ideas to spend this money on, right?!
Therefore, Hostelz is really your way to save money with just a few clicks.
Please remember, Hostelz.com is not a booking site. We simply compare the rates for you so you can book cheaper and travel longer.
5. Find that Last Available Bed (after the other websites say it's sold out)
Hostels only put a portion of their beds in each booking system. Unless of course they choose to only use one site - this is made clear on each hostel page here on Hostelz.com.
When you use Hostelz.com, we search all of the booking sites, so you'll always be able to find that last available bed at the hostel you want.
In case they are booked out, you will also have access to the hostel website to check there. The absolute last chance would be calling the hostel as well. We also show the phone number for each hostel.
That being said, we always recommend booking in advance when possible. Read here our guide on when to book hostels.
6. Better Filters for Finding Your Perfect Hostel
There are many kinds of hostels.
You might be looking for a party hostel where you can stay up all night having a good time, or you might be looking for a friendly but quiet place to rest. Hostelz.com makes it easy to find the right hostel for you with "suitable for" search options to let you filter your search results with choices including "party", "quiet rest", "+50 traveller", and "solo traveller."
The website also lets users search for other kinds of specific features, such as hostels that accept pets, or hostels that have a bar or swimming pool.
