Book Hostels - Find Where How to Book and Reserve Hostels

The Best Hostel Booking Companies and Websites

By

Hostel booking in advance is a snap if you use one of the few big hostel booking websites, and some are better than others for seeing hostel reviews before booking hostels. Of course, the way to fly in getting the next hostel is often getting the skinny from mates in your current hostel -- but if you don't know the city to which you're headed, it can pay to pay attention to reviews and do your hostel booking, at least for the first few nights, before you leave home. So, who do we recommend for booking hostels? Glad you asked:

Hostelz.com

The reason we love Hostelz.com are simple: the listings are free, and paid staff creates a good share of the reviews (as do backpackers like you and us). Learn more (and give your own input below)...

TFTHostels

TFTHostels is a hostel aggregator -- a great guesthouse and hostel search engine which allows you to search an integrated directory all of the major hostel booking websites simultaneously and see combined results for a given city. We love this! Learn more (and give your own input below)...

Hostelworld.com

Hostelworld.com is the gigantic giant in the hostel booking world, and offers lots o' extras on its site beyond booking hostels. Learn more (and give your own input below)...
