It's that time of year when we gather your ratings to find out what are your top hostels in the world. We do this for the hostel industry's most coveted awards - the annual Hostelworld.com Hoscar Awards.
Now in their 10th year, this year's Hoscars are being awarded at a glitzy awards ceremony this coming Monday 6th February in Dublin. They will be attended by over 400 hostel owners and staff from around the world, all of whom will be hoping to win a coveted Hoscar.
For those of you who have never heard of the Hostelworld.com Hoscar Awards before, here’s the lowdown...when you make a booking on our site you’re sent an email asking you to rate the hostel you stayed in on six different criteria – cleanliness, location, security, fun, character and staff. Once you’ve rated the hostel out of 5 in each category, it goes towards the hostel’s overall rating. If you’ve left a comment that will be published too (once you don't say anything too rude in it of course).
But along with going towards the hostel’s rating at the time, your vote also goes towards a count which takes place at the end of the year for a 'Hoscar', the winners of which will announced this coming Monday.
What hostel do you think should win a Hoscar?
