What is the Best Hostel Booking Site Nowadays

Are you about to go on your first time backpacking trip? Then you probably are seeking for many answers for all the questions that you have. One of those questions you have, is: What is the best hostel booking site to use? Well let me help you with this questions, since I think I can help you with this one.

First things first, what are your flavors you can choose from. For hotels there are many large website to book your room on. Since the popularity of hostels have increase, families and business people stay at hostels besides young travelers. This led to large booking website, for hostels only. So let me take you through the best ones.

HOSTELDEALS

Hosteldeals is a fairly new website which isn't a traditional hostel booking website. For this website you need a membership card to be able to book at the hostels that are listed here.

Pro's:

- Hosteldeals offers their members great deals on their, sometimes up to 50% discount on your booking! - You are making bookings direct at the hostels, so no inconvenient interference by a third party website. - Direct bookings let you easy communicate with the hostel, regarding your booking.

Con's:

- They don't have the largest amount of listings.

HOSTELWORLD

Hostelworld is currently the largest and website that is used the most by (budget) travelers. But is this the best hostel booking site for you?

Pro's:

- They are the largest hostel booking website, they have the most hostels listed; - Hostelworld have received such a great amount of bookings, that they have many reviews of hostels on their site.

- They have a good user interface, which makes it easy to navigate.

Con's:

- They have very strict terms and conditions. You have to pay a deposit, which is you loose most of the time with a cancelation

- They are not always the cheapest.

BOOKING

Booking is by far one of the largest booking websites, for all types of accommodations. This gives you many options for your required destination.

Pro's:

- They have a lot of accommodations listed, also non hostels. This gives you a lot of choice to choose from.

- Booking offers a 'best price guarantee'. This means when you found a cheaper place to book, they will match it or beat it.

Con's:

- Website has a lot of information, which makes the website a bit difficult to use.

CONCLUSION

As you can see all booking websites have their own features, with advantages and disadvantages. Since you will be staying at a hostel, you most likely have to be conscious of the prices. Therefore I think it is best to seek you hostel on Hostelworld or Booking and then see if Hosteldeals has the same hostel listed. After all the price advantage with their membership card, will save you a big amount of money. You have to keep in mind that the membership card of Hosteldeals will cost you minimum of € 2,95 for a three day membership. When Hosteldeals does not have your preferred hostel listed, the best advice is to find it on Hostelworld or Booking and compare prices between both booking websites.
