TIPS: Research, Book Hostels With iPhone App

Earlier, we reported about how hostels are becoming a more frequent lodging option for travelers to the United States, and a new iPhone app is making this affordable option easier. With Hostel Hero, you can download information about hostels found in an entire country to your iPod Touch or iPhone. One of the best features of the app is that the information is stored on the device, allowing you to access it when a connection isn’t available. There’s a detailed description available for each hostel, including information such as fees and available facilities. Want to learn more? The video below (narrated in a charming British accent) details how the app works, including the booking feature.—Hilary Solan
