Hoscar Awards 2012

Attended by over 300 hostel owners, managers and staff from all over the world, the annual Hoscars is the biggest trade event on the budget travel calendar. Being held in Dublin’s new state of the art Convention Centre on the River Liffey, the awards honour the top hostels in the world, as voted for by customers. These are based on reviews that users leave after staying in a hostel, rating hostels on Character, Security, Location, Staff, Fun and Cleanliness. Other awards are given out in categories such as ‘Best New Hostel’ and ‘Best Staff’.

This year’s conference, which is extra special since it’s the 10th anniversary, will be preceded by a conference which will also take place in the Convention Centre. The event will feature keynote speakers, giving talks on new trends and developments in the budget travel sector.

…And this year’s winners …
