Hey guys, I know it's been a while since I hit up Tpunk, but I've been having a crazy first year in college. Hendrix College is giving me and another guy money to go to Germany and France this summer (TIGHT!), but I'm having trouble using the Travelpunk hostel-booking program. I keep getting "There was an error with your transaction" business, and it's telling me I can't book at the A&O Am Zoo (in Berlin) because I'm not booking enough days, even though it won't let me book more than 7 in a row. We're trying to get two people in there from June 10 to June 19, but it's being weird. Can you guys tell me what I'm doing wrong? If I don't get this figured out soon, I'm gonna freak the hell out.

Okay, not sure how to solve the problem, but I'm gonna bump this up so the Godfather can see it. I believe that he is the one with the answers to the hostel database program.

(fwiw, you may not be able to reserve rooms at some, but let's see if he gets a better answer for you)

It could be due to lack of availability for 2 people for 9days in a row in a specific type of room that you're requesting. Twin private room, 8 bed mixed dorms, 8 bed mixed dorm ensuite, 10 bed mixed dorm, etc...

Can you at least get to this page? It's for the 8 bed mixed dorm room. If that doesn't matter to you, try booking it and see if it works.
And if that doesn't work, try booking one person at a time (first all of your nights, then all of your buddies). When you get there and check in at the same time, just ask to be put in the same room together.

An if you're still having trouble after that, send me a PM with the exact error message.

We ended up booking the A&O Kreuzberg in Friedrichshain, which looks like it'll be fine. The booking stopped being a problem (I think part of it might be the way my iBook sends information on the college's ethernet, because I have trouble getting my mail and some other stuff, too). Does anybody know anything about the Appartment hostel on the search that's in Prenzlauer Berg? It's really cheap, and I know it's in the eastern part of the city, but it almost seems too good to be true. . .
