The Artbird Network is a worldwide network of quality hostels and boutique hotels that offer discounts to travellers. A not-for-profit travel community, the Artbird Network does not charge commission for sharing promo codes and the aim of the Network is to help travellers save money as they travel the world, and to help the hostels/hotels invited to join encourage travellers to book direct. Read about why I created the Artbird Network here https://wp.me/p9u5hw-1ue Check out the Instagram account @artbird_network https://www.instagram.com/artbird_network for further details on each property.
Did you know that many hostels/hotels prefer guests to book direct rather than through third party sites that charge commission and they are prepared to offer discounts for bookings made direct. Third party sites generally charge 15% commission. If you book direct using the promo codes listed below, you are effectively getting a bed/room up to 25%* cheaper than booking through sites such as Hostelworld and Booking.com (*10% discount plus saving yourself the 15% commission).
