The most memorable event was Hostelbookers' 8th Anniversary Party held in May this year. Each year they celebrate their anniversary with a big party and this year the company took their staff to a private 10 Pin Bowling suite which they hired for the afternoon. Hostelbookers organised teams for bowling and held mini competitions e.g. giant games, karaoke, travel quiz and a fancy dress photo booth. They then took everyone to a restaurant which they hired out for the evening. There was a champagne reception, 4 course meal, prize and speech ceremony and then dancing until early hours of the morning. The whole day including food and drinks was completely free to their staff.

Hostelbookers' CSR team promote and are continuously arranging charity events or volunteering for their staff member to participate in. A recent event they arranged was for members of staff to help at the People's Supermarket which is a volunteer run social enterprise. Their staff helped them to prepare food and to run the shop, such as stacking shelves, ordering stock, re-arranging the stock room. Hostelbookers also held another volunteering event to help the charity Freecycle set up and run one of its events.
