Running with the Bulls – Introducing HostelBookers

A few weeks ago I announced that I am Running with the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain in July but I can’t do it alone. Not only are four of the feistiest female travel bloggers I know coming along for the ride but so are some amazing sponsors including RoomoramaEurail Hostelbookers!!

Each week between now and the run I will be introducing each one of our wonderful sponsors to give you a bit more insight on what they do and how they’re helping us girls run with the bulls.

This week I’ll be introducing Hostelbookers – our accommodation provider whilst making our way to and from Spain!

Hostelbookers homepage

Who they are

Hostelbookers is a independent hostel booking provider offering hostels in over 3,500 destinations across the world. Best of all they have no booking fees meaning you have more to spend on things you really want to pay for!

What they do

Hostelbooker staff have scoured the world for the best and cheapest hostels and put them into an easy to use booking engine to simplify the search for the perfect hostel for your next holiday, all without breaking the bank.

Hostelbookers search options

By hopping on their site, inputting your needs – date, country, city, number of people, and what type of property you’d like to stay in (you can find anything from apartments to camping grounds!) – Hostelbookers will quickly find all the options and present them to you in an easy to navigate table telling you what’s available, and what each property includes in the price – super simple!
Additionally to provide extra transparency and help previous hostel stayers have the option to contribute a rating and review on their thoughts of their stays. That means you can find out if the bathrooms are really as good as the hostel has raved about, if there is free wifi and breakfast, or if you won’t be able to sleep during the night because the bar downstairs is a little too good…

Hostelbookers is helping us by arranging out accommodation at Palmers Lodge - Swiss Cottage in London!

How they’re helping us

Whilst our friends at Roomorama had us covered whilst we were in Pamplona, we didn’t know where to stay in each other city we visited on our way to and from Spain. Luckily Hostelbookers stepped in and offered to help find accommodation to suit each of our personalities; Hostels which are good enough for female bull runners and our awesome readers to check-out as well.

The photos above is a sneak peek at just one of the Hostelbookers are arranging for me to stay in whilst on this trip!

Don’t forget to watch all of our blogs over the coming month to see all the great properties that Hostelbookers have arranged for us to stay in.

A big thank you to HostelBookers for sponsoring Girls Running with Bulls!

    Awesome, have a blast! I went in 2005 and it was by far the best trip of my life. Not to set your expectations too high or anything… 🙂

    I like hostelbookers better than hostel world, but sometimes I use both just to check availability in popular destinations because I’m pretty sure each company gets a certain percentage of the beds at a hostel so maybe one still has a few available.
