Where is a good place to book hostels before I arrive in Budpest? I have looked at Hostel World but it's American and so costs more to book if you're British. I will spemd more if its reliable. should I book anyway?
I'm sure someone here knows some cheap accomodation that can be booked in advanced, or knows of some good websites for this.
Any suggestiosn very welcome
Well, dare I say Travellerspoint?? Check out the 'cheap accommodation' link on the left hand side of the page. We got exactly the same properties as HW, but we've also got a last minute system and a hotels system tied in for even more choice! We picked the partners we did because they have good customer service and in the unlikely event that something goes wrong (hey, that can always happen when you're dealing with 30 000 properties worldwide), they've always acted properly towards the customers, even when it wasn't due to any systems issues etc.
By the way, HW is definitely not American, but Irish (or else I just have a hard time understanding their accents ). It costs the same to book regardless of where you are from, the only difference being if you choose to pay with a debet card (fees go up in that case)....
Oh, and yes, I've booked several times through each of the systems here on TP
Yeah Good point. You got me there!
