Receiving awards is a great honour for us. It validates us in our work and our actions.
The HOSCARS (HOStelworld Customer Annual Ratings) Hostel awards take place every year to recognize the best hostels in the world. More than 25,000 properties from across the globe, all featured on Hostelworld.com, are eligible for the awards. The best hostel winners were voted for by over 900,000 customers worldwide who booked their accommodation online and rated and reviewed the hostel on six criteria - character, security, location, staff, fun and cleanliness.

This is the first time the award has been presented to a hostel chain.
