Lars, happy and proud, with one of the awards

For the hostel business the “Hoscar” is the same as the “Oscar” for the movie industry: the world’s most prestigious awards. It stands for “Hostelworld.com Customers Annual Ratings. This means, it is voted by more than 1 million customers a year, who book their bed via Hostelworld.com and rate their hostel on criteria like character, location, staff, cleanliness, fun and security. For the Hoscars 2012, more than 25.000 hostels and low budget hotels all over the world were eligible…
