Hostels insight

Hostelworld London provides cheap accommodation, when you are looking for the British capital as a top destination. Nowadays is convenient to fly over for a really good rate with Ryanair or Easyjet.
In order to elect the right hostel for your backpacking experience, without being surprised at your arrival, Thesavvybackpaker provides detailed guide on how to book with hostelworld. Hostelworld reviews are an important point that is mentioned an explains how to look in deeper for the big picture. Here is a snapshot of a really good advice:
‘But you should also look at the number of reviews because some hostels might have a really high rating but only have a few reviews. I’d rather book a hostel with a slightly lower rating, but with a few hundred reviews than a hostel with higher reviews but only 10-15 reviews. I also like that all the reviews on Hostelworld are from the past 6 months, so it gives you a better idea of the hostel’s current condition.’

Hostelworld is the right place to go for sure, when looking for cheap accommodation for your next holiday. There are other options as well. Like for example the list of the 30 Best Cheap Hotels in Amsterdam on Tripadvisor. This list has a filter that tracks the ‘cheap’, ‘affordable’ or ‘budget hotel’ terms inside the reviews left by guests. You can do the same with another destination you are looking forward in visiting.


‘Easy to read, find information and book a please, good looking, well developed, wide range of tools, concrete and very, very helpful! :-)’


‘One of the best booking sites in the world. Simple, easy and fast. Always with a lot of options for every city.’


‘Hostelworld is great, i had wonderful experiences, but the last tima i tried do a reservation, had only a few possibilities and nothing really good. Anyway, the site em general is fine and i always use for my researches.’
