TFTHostels.com launches world's first hostel search engine

TFTHostels.com is the world's first hostel search engine. It combines the directories of all major hostel booking websites into a single interface, saving visitors time and money. Visitors can:

* Search the largest directory of hostels in the world
* Compare rates, reviews and recommendations
* Check availability, specs and location
* Book the hostel of your choice by visiting the hostel booking website

Annoyed by the large amount of hostel booking agencies he had to check and compare to find an affordable room on his trips all over the world, the Dutch backpacking tourist Marco van de Kamp created a search engine that renders all existing hostel search engines virtually obsolete. Van de Kamp, also the coordinator of a backpacking community called Travelers for Travelers, decided to build a website that could search all major hostel booking websites simultaneously. After months of preparation, his website, which is free to use and will not display any ads, will is live June 4th at TFTHostels.com.

On the first day, the search engine will have access to 27.338 hostels. “But that's just the beginning,” says Van de Kamp, “I will continue to search for more hostels to add to the site.” Hostels can be compared by location, rates and quality of service. The site also offers user-written reviews. Only the reservation process is handled by the respective booking agency.
