We know what it’s like, when you can’t wait to explore like a local but have no time to do loads of internet research before you head off. I think we all want to hit the ground running, uncovering your new city’s hidden gems and dodging the overpriced tourist hotspots. I mean who doesn’t roam the streets with Google’s funny little man on streetview?! Oh just us then!
So if you’re the type of person who likes to get under the skin of the destination before you get there, then we have exciting news! We’ve updated our app to give you off the beaten track info. We’ve teamed up with Gogobot (who just happen to be an award-winning travel planning website) who will be sharing their local knowledge with you, from the moment you book your hostel stay with us. Your travel ‘like a local’ guide will be delivered straight to your ‘My Trips’ folder within the app.
Visiting a destination and experiencing it like a local is what gives you that authentic travel experience. Once you arrive the hostel staff are armed with local knowledge but there’s no need to wait until you arrive now. We’re kicking this off with 22 major cities including, London, New York and San Francisco and hope to expand this list over the next few months.
