Booking on Hostelworld is straightforward, with users simply entering their intended location, check-in and check-out dates, and number of guests, and filtering the list by price and ratings. There are two types of bookings available: non-flexible and non-refundable, and standard flexible. Hostelworld has a secure payment gateway and accepts various debit and credit cards, but does not offer the option to pay via PayPal. The company has tied up with around 36,000 properties in 170 countries, and offers 24/7 customer service.
