Posted by jasonkim8486 on 22/9/2009 at 04:03

im trying to book hostels/bungalows for december on this website, but it only shows availability for next three days or so..? how can i book for 2-3 months in advance? and what other websites provide great range of budget hostels/ bungalows with reviews?

You can book ahead for a maximum stay of ten nights. Take this page as an example : scroll down to the booking bit and you'll see at the base a section where you can check availability for different dates, and for however many days you want (up to ten). You just change the dates and it will show what's available.

To look at all the props available through HostelWorld, you can start here: http://reservations.bookhostels.com/travelfish.org/

More questions, let me know.

Cheers

300-400 single rooms are easy to get. But not if you are in Phuket or some other tourist desination. The hotel down the street from me offers single rooms with AC and cable TV for under 400 baht a night. Clean too. But I live in a place where anglo tourists don't go. We get lots of Thai tourists, but not anglos.

"But not if you are in Phuket or some other tourist desination".
well im assuming ko tao, similans, samui, ko phi phi are tourist destinations. does this mean ill have trouble finding single beds[300-400bht] in these places? most hostel websites dont list single beds, just double beds in which i have to pay double[am i better off just showing up and lookin around]?. only reason i ask is because when i backpacked europe, on two separate occasions ive had things stolen from my dorm room so naturally i am a little reluctant with roommates. ill be traveling in december thru january. any info is much appreciated, thnx!
