I don’t normally write reviews. But this app really warrants a 5 star rating.

I used this with my mate during interrailing around Europe and it enabled us to always find incredible places to stay.

It is easy to use with a system that easily allows me to tell it how many people I’m booking for, when I want to stay, and where. Beyond that I can choose a huge amount of filters to find an ideal place easily.

Once I’ve used the filters to find eligible places, it’s like being in a very user friendly candy shop of hostels. Ranking the hostels in a clear way, while also showing me photos and information as well as average room prices for my stay meant budgeting was a breeze.

Every place we went with the app was just as described and it really took all of the stress and hassle of booking out of the equation with the very easy to use in app booking system.

Often within five minutes I had found a brilliant place to stay, I knew where it was, what to expect, and had booked myself in all within the app.

This really takes so much stress out of travelling and makes me want to use hostels so much more because of how easy it all was!

A solid 5/5 for everything from design to user friendliness to capability.

Great app but could be improved


The iPad app shows the cost of both private and dorm beds in the search results. It would be great if the iPhone app did this. At the moment you have to click into the individual hostel to find this out.

When you make a search and click through to the booking page sometimes the dates you have selected will change on their own. They seem to revert back to a previous search. This is frustrating and we have been caught out before and ended up booking the wrong dates for a hostel.

Otherwise the app is great and it makes booking a hostel a almost painless task.

Good app to book places to stay


The app does a good job at quickly finding places to stay with credible reviews. The down points, you don’t stay signed in so every time you use the app you need to log in and there is no offline access which is not good enough seeing as half of the time you are checking the app for directions or to see if the reception is charging the correct amount, they do send an email however this is when you make the booking and can sometimes be very far down your email list.

Developer Response

Hi, thanks for your feedback. You can use safari's shared credentials so you don't need to your details each time. We store your bookings offline. Just view it online first and then you can access it later offline. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions please contact us at
