LONDON, February 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

The Hoscars, organised by leading budget travel website Hostelworld.com, is the biggest trade awards programme in the budget travel industry. Now in its 12th year, the awards honour the world's top hostels, as voted for by Hostelworld.com customers. This year, a total of 264 Hoscars were awarded to winners and nominees around the globe. The Hoscars are the only awards in the travel industry decided exclusively by guest reviews. The winners were decided by over one million Hostelworld.com customers who stayed in the properties in 2013.

The top three winners for the best hostels overall in North America were M Montreal, Hostelling International Boston, and Planet Traveler in Toronto.

'Most popular' category winners for North American cities include hostels in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco:

USA Hostels Hollywood, located in the Hollywood city centre and just steps from the Walk of Fame, is surrounded by some of Los Angeles's hottest bars and clubs. USA Hostels Hollywood offers fun, clean, value-driven accommodation for travellers who want the most for their money.

The New York Budget Inn boasts 65 rooms reflecting the personality of New York City. With both shared and private bathrooms, universal Wi-Fi and rooms ranging from standard private through to superior and deluxe, the hostel offers great value and affordable prices.

Just three blocks from Union Square in the heart of the city, USA Hostels San Francisco is a short walk from Chinatown, Japantown, the historic cable cars and San Francisco's best shopping. With a great location, comfortable rooms with custom-designed privacy pods, and many social spaces including a large lounge and kitchen, library and real theatre, USA Hostels San Francisco offers the best value in hostel accommodation for backpackers, flashpackers and budget travellers.

Hostelworld.com's CEO, Feargal Mooney, commented on this year's awards:

"Hostelworld.com's annual Hoscars have always been the most eagerly anticipated event on the budget travel calendar. We take great pride that these awards are based solely on the reviews and ratings of guests who have booked, stayed and experienced the hostel -it's the only fair way to ensure a true and accurate reflection of the hostels' strengths and weaknesses. We would like to extend our congratulations to everyone involved and direct special congratulations to the North American entrants, who have enjoyed a particularly successful year."
