Hostel-Finding Travel App Shows Who Else Is Staying There Too
Testing the app for my hometown of Orlando produced four good results based on my current location. At one property, close to Orlando International Airport (MCO), a basic tent with shared bathroom came in at $15 per night. Typical of other listings, additional choices included a standard four-bed male dorm, standard four-bed female dorm or a deluxe six-bed female dorm suite for $25 per night.
Looking down the road, WeHostels users can enter their next destination to line up a hostel for the next place they may be going in advance too. Once found, booking is easy via the app for regular hostel guests who don't need to know more and just want to tie down a place to sleep for the night. Contact information for the property is also included for those who want to know more.
So what's different about WeHostels over finding a hostel from another hostel source, say Hostels.com or HostelWorld.com?
In addition to the handy travel app, WeHostels boasts a social element where we can check out who might also be staying at a chosen location before we get there.
Available right now for iPhone, WeHostel plans for the launch of a general mobile site soon to enable Android users. Save more at WeHostel now; enter the code "GADLING" for $10 off.
