As a Hostel and passionate travellers ourselves we understand the significance of well spend money during a trip. Especially for backpackers and low budget travellers every penny saved with accommodation, for example, can be invested in more fun in the visited city or even mean an extra destination in the travel plan. Thinking about this and in respect to you the Amstel House – together with many other hostels – would like to clarify an important detail about the Online Booking Channels, such as Hostelworld, Hostelbookers and Booking.com.
We are definitely grateful to them. Many of our guests get to us thanks to their services, which in turn makes it easier to find and book hostels online. However the price for such service is getting to high. A commission of 10% to 20% – depending on the channel – is charged over every reservation. What means the same bed/room gets in these websites more expensive. And you are the one paying for it!
How to avoid it? Simply book directly on our website! Beside the BEST PRICE GUARANTEE, you get access to more room categories and availability, special offers, photos and information. And, of course, don’t worry. You are safe by us!
