TFThostels.com has just launched what may be the first meta search engine for hostels. When you search for hostels on TFThostels.com, it uses Web services from booking engines like Hostelsclub, Hostelworld, and Hostelbookers to find hostels and prices in real time from the databases of several booking engines. There are already over 27,000 properties in the system.
When you begin to type in your search term, the site already begins showing results:

TFThostels.com was created by Marco van de Kamp, a Dutch backpacker who also runs an online backpacking community called Travelers for Travelers.
