With more than 27, 000 properties and some of the most in-demand hostel’s in the world, HostelWorld.com is one world’s most popular booking engines for backpacker hostels. As we’ve written previously, almost all hostels in Europe and the USA are available to book on HW, and bookings are extremely secure (they were recently voted the worlds most trusted hostel website). Whenever you make a booking via HostelWorld, they’ll charge you a booking fee and a deposit for your bed. To save yourself a bit of money and avoid paying this booking fee, you can use a coupon code (called a ‘GoldCard’ or HostelWorld Discount Code).
Fill out a quick form on HostelWorld and get a GoldCard – meaning you won’t pay the $2 / £1 booking fee.Open GoldCard Signup Page
That’s a trick question! HostelWorld, HostelBookers, and Hostels.com are all owned by the same company! You can often book directly with the hostel, or show up without a booking at all.
