Hostelworld – book hostels & budget accommodation

Who wants to sit on a packed tour bus when you could be volcano surfing? Or riding a ferris wheel in a former salt mine in Romania? Or getting a face full of tomatoes at Tomatina Festival? Stay in a hostel and see places you never knew existed, with people you've just met.

▶As always we've been busting those bugs
Functional, but lacking.
The app does its purpose of looking up hostels, complete with cute map! However, it's slow and frequently lags or becomes unresponsive. There are only two filter options (price and type of accommodation) which aren't always super helpful. I especially like narrowing down places by private rooms, which isn't an option on the app. Also cannot edit your profile/etc, and some reviews show up incorrectly.
Think I'll stick to using the mobile site.
The app is very helpful when it comes to finding hostels! I like how there is a map to see what is near the hostel and I like the different percentage ratings of security, value for money, etc. I have booked two different hostels with this app and it was wonderful!
Doesn't store your bookings offline
App doesn't let you see your last booking info without an internet connection, which is a crucial failure when you arrive at a train station without wifi and need written directions. It should store all that info whenever it connects.
