Hostel Booking Gets Personal

Hostel Hero is a free iPhone App that lets you book backpacker hostels and budget hotels straight from your iPod Touch or iPhone.

Unlike normal booking websites, most features of Hostel Hero work offline. Now you can download and save the most useful information to your device, and use it anywhere...

Featuring photos, maps, user ratings and reviews, Hostel Hero is the app no backpacker should leave home without!

Download it for free from the App Store.

Find hostels from the beach, bus, boat or bed!

Save your favourites, then make a booking in seconds when you next connect to a wi-fi point. No roaming fees, and no more hours wasted in internet cafes!

Hostel Hero can even save your personal details so you don't have to type them in every time, and bookings can be made with just a few simple clicks.
