customers aren’t your average tourists; they crave experiences not souvenirs
and want to be in the heart of the action. They want to Meet the world, and
it’s the social nature of hostels that facilitates their travel adventures.

Hostelworld has become the leading hostel-focused brand amongst this target
audience with 90% being under the age of 35.
The Hostelworld Group went public in November 2015,

transactional business and started putting customers at the heart of everything
it did, with millennial travel at its core. The re-brand saw Hostelworld create
