HI could pay more attention to information regarding location of hostels relative to Greyhound bus station or other travel hubs.......How to get there easily may be just as important as other details such as price or comfort. I know google maps do quite a lot but are poor on local travel details compared to local knowledge. How about more details on your own website For your own members Not leaving the responsibility to Google Bing etc
