Hostelz.com was started by backpackers who saw a need for a better hostels guide website. We created this site to be the ultimate hostels guide with everything we and other backpackers were looking for. Some of what this site offers include free complete listings for all hostels worldwide, quick searching, genuine unbiased reviews, original hostel photographs, comments from other backpackers, and a better reservation system that searches for the best availability in across all of the major booking systems. And we keep all of our pages clean and simple with no pop-ups or banner ads so it’s fast and easy to find the information you want.
Some of our hostel listings have only information supplied by the hostel owner, but we’re trying to photograph and review as many hostels as possible. The goal of this site is to be the best hostels and budget accommodations guide available anywhere.
The atmosphere of a hostel can vary greatly. Some are big social hang outs with pool tables and a bar, and some are quaint little homey places run by a sweet old lady. The reviews and descriptions on this site will help you to find the ones that fit what you’re looking for.
