Hi MadridMan,

I've just check the "bookings.org" website and I think they are yet other people trying to make easy money from us (hostales).

I really hate this kind of business consisting of earning money through a commission system. We work very hard every day (I'm sure you know it) and I think it's not fair to earn money only by a booking system. When I check the bookings I receive from home, I have to pay per second of connection. If I don't charge my customers for that, I think nobody should charge them just to make a reservation.

This is not the first "booking" service I've seen. Fortunately and thanks to the internet, I hope we can manage to set up our own booking system (mainly through e-mail) with no charge for our customers.

I've only checked the places they advertise in Madrid and most of them are quite expensive. In fact, most are hotels not "hostales".

Regards,

Antonio
