HostelBookers, the budget accommodation specialist, has been named one of the UK’s 100 fastest-growing technology companies in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 list released on the 19th September.

The league table, which identifies the UK’s fastest-growing private technology, telecoms and digital media companies, ranks HostelBookers 62nd following sales growth of 45% to £8.3 million for the year ending December 2009.
