Hostelworld is one of the most all-encompassing hostel booking websites on the internet, featuring 36,000 properties across 170 countries and boasting more than 10 million verified guest reviews. They offer 24/7 customer service and a blog containing travelling tips and advice, while their website can be accessed in a whole host of languages, from Danish to Japanese

 

The website itself is easy to use, with a simple layout that presents a search bar for choosing your destination, preferred check-in and check-out dates and number of guests. You will then be taken through to a list of hostels that can be sorted by price, rating, distance or name, as well as the option of adding filters to fine tune results, including room type, facilities and even payment type.

 

I particularly like the ability to set an average price using the slide bar as this quickly helps you filter out the more expensive options if you are just after something simple and cheap, or vice versa if you want to stay somewhere slightly more luxurious. Hostelworld offers a guarantee that when you book with them you have secured the room, however if you arrive and there is no trace of your reservation, then you will receive a full refund and $50 USD towards your next booking, a feature that is not offered by other booking sites.

 

Each property comes with a rating out of 10 based on verified user reviews, with the best qualities highlighted, such as ‘Great Location’ or ‘Brilliant Staff’. Along with the photos on each hostel’s profile, this helps to give a good idea of what to expect from the accommodation. Nevertheless, where on other websites you are able to type in keywords to search reviews, for example if you are searching for reviews on the quality of food, on Hostelworld you can only sort by newest, oldest, and top rated. Adding this feature would make the website even more complete.

Pros
  • 24/7 customer service, offered in 19 languages
  • Good search filters to fine tune results
  • Booking guarantee, with full refund and $50 USD if there is any problem when you arrive
Cons
  • No option to search reviews by keywords

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧
