A Massive Collection

The WeHostels app provides you with access to more than 25,000 hotels and hostels around the world. In fact you'll find options in more than 700 different cities. The app is really for those who are of course traveling on a budget, like students who are studying abroad or taking a summer trip, those traveling on their own, and backpackers. This is a great way to discover just how affordable accommodations can be when you look in the right spot. The app doesn't just offer you information on locations and pricing, but you can also book through it, making it a multi-functional tool.

The best iPhone and iPad apps for finding hotel deals

WeHostels does require iOS 7.0 or later to use and it has just recently gone through some enhancements. It scores very high with users who have given it 4.5 out of five stars. The customer comments are a bit mixed as it seems there are some stability issues with the app still.

Navigation the App

When it comes to navigation, WeHostels is smooth, quick, and easy. You can conduct a search by date and city or you can find hostels and budget hotels located near you. When the places pop up you can make your booking right through the app. What's really fun is the social aspect of this app where you are able to see pictures of others who plan to stay in the hostel. This means you'll know people when you arrive. When you make your booking you will need to put 10 percent down in order to guarantee it, and if you refer a friend you'll get $10 in WeHostels credit.

To make the app even more user-friendly it supports a few different currencies and languages. The photos in the app are really great quality and can certainly help you make a decision when it comes to booking. The bar across the bottom of the screen makes it easy to move through the app and find what it is you're looking for.
