Online PR News – 22-August-2009 – – Hostelio.com, a website focused on budget travel industry, today announces a partnership with Hostelbookers.com which will enable users to find and reserve beds at thousands of youth hostels and B&B's worldwide using the website. Hostelio's founder Ersan Erdem said: "We're thrilled to have linked up with Hostelbookers to offer our users hostel booking on our site. As the only independent hostel booking site that doesn't charge booking fees, we believe Hostelbookers offers great value for money. Also, with the emphasis on quality rather than quantity in their portfolio of hostels, we should be able to promise our users a decent place to stay when they book a hostel through the site."
According to recent statictics, hostel industry is growing rapidly in many cities around the world, such as New York, Rome, Buenos Aires and Miami. This is reflected in the development and expansion of dozens of hostel chains worldwide. The recent eruption in independent hostels has been called "probably the single biggest news in the world of low-cost travel".
The development of backpackers hostels is a strong business model, with some cities reporting a higher average income per room for hostels than hotels. For example, in the city of Honolulu, Hawaii, upscale hotels are reportedly making $141 to $173 per room, while hostel rooms in the same city can bring in as much as $200 per night. Even during the 2008 economic crisis, many hostels are reporting increased occupancy numbers in a time when hotel bookings are down.
