« During my world tour, I was in Australia, in such a big hostel, with so many backpackers, so that I have never met someone. Each backpacker was focused on their smartphone. That was impossible to know who wanted to go out or who wanted to participate in any activity inside the hostel. If I had a tool like Hostelive, it would have been easier for me to meet people in a hostel ».

« During my trip in Canada, I’ve hiked in to the nature for several days, in the middle of nowhere without seeing anyone. Arriving in a hostel is always comforting. Some hostels are more friendly than others, each time I would love to arrive in a new hostel like in a new home. I’ve joined Hostelive for this reason: feeling at home whatever the place ».
