Lonely Planet/hostleworld / Restrictive Practices
We are a cash low cost backpacker hostel who charges from USD 2 to 5 per night.
We cannot get listed on Lonely Planet or their affiliate Hostleworld because they exclude us as we cannot afford credit cards because there would be nothing left for us.
This is clearly restrictive trade practices being used by these parties who give the image of providing best value for travellers.
The truth is they are more interested in commissions and not in revealing the lowest and best value for backpackers which is on the basis of low cost cash hostels such as ours.
