Opposition to Hostelworld Service Fees increase

Hostelworld has announced it will be increasing the service fee from 10 - 12 % and even to 15% for certain accommodation and in some countries. We are against this move as Hostel owners and employees as it will affect our business. We will either have to increase prices so the customer will end up paying more or we will have to absorb this cost into an already tight profit margin.

Please sign to show your support against this increase.


  • Giacomo This is disgusting, keep it at 10%, you greedy. In my opinion, that's already more than enough!

  • Hi Samambaia Hostel We are all very desapointed at Hi Hostelling International Brazil, over 100 hostel, and we will all block Hostelword bookings from now on!

  • Anonymous Hostelworld is getting greedy and destroying the spirit of what we do
