  1. Introducing...the Hostelworld VIP Experience

    posted by Heather Thompson | 2 Comments


    We love reading your reviews. Not only so we can read feedback on hostels around the world, but also so we can provide other travellers with honest, real-time reviews for the world’s top hostels. They help travellers know which hostels they can trust to give them the best experiences. To let you guys know a little of just how much we appreciate this wealth of information, we’ve decided to reward our top reviewers every month with complimentary "VIP Experiences".

    These experiences include three nights private, en-suite accommodation in one of our best “Hostelworld Recommends” hostels, excellent service throughout the stay, and a special Hostelworld.com Goodie Pack awaiting the winner upon arrival!

    We’re pleased to announce that this month’s winner is James Finger from Australia. He’ll be enjoying three fantastic nights in the Casa Gracia Central Hostel in Barcelona, Spain. This stylish boutique hostel is centrally- located on a grand, picturesque and distinctly Barcelonan boulevard in the heart of the city. Enjoy your VIP Experience, James – and thank you!

    We only accept reviews submitted by customers who have stayed at the property and your reviews are really important to us. We currently have more than 3.5 million reviews on our site (and growing), all of which contribute to our status as the most trusted hostel website.

    So what are you waiting for?! If you haven’t already submitted a review on Hostelworld.com for a property you've stayed in, do it now - you could be next month’s winner!

    Congrats James and a great initiative Heather and Colm. That is a superb hostel James- I've featured Casa Gracia as one of my 50 Luxury Hostels on my blog..definitely a hostel with a difference. Say hello to Alex at Casa Gracia (say it was the Budget Traveller ) Alex is the local with his finger on the pulse and organises some great parties and events at the hostel Kash www.budgettraveller.org

    Thanks Hostelworld! This was totally unexpected and was very exciting to hear Id won something. I have used Hostelworld nearly exclusively during my last 18 months of travel as my guide of where to stay around the world and found them a great way to book a bed. They listened to the community feedback to update the review categories which was great, and the only time I did have a problem with a hostel I booked through them (hostels fault, not theirs) the customer service was outstanding. Cheers! James
