Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) on hostelworld for the fallen 18pc year in constant currency, the Euro for the six months ended June 30, 9.8 m.

Earnings were affected by changes in the parameters of reservation, with the group, offering clients when booking with free cancellation.

This has led to the postponement of €4.2 m in income from the company, according to a trading update from the group.

In addition to the consequences of deferral of this revenue, adjusted EBITDA increased by €1.1 m (18pc in constant currency) during the period.

Group revenue fell by 3pc year-on-year, compared with €42.6 m in the impact of the deferred revenue, while adjusted profit after tax decreased to €7.6 m from €10.3 million in the same period last year, partly due to the effect of €4.2 m company associated with free cancellation, which was received, but deferred in the period.

Gary Morrison, who was appointed head of the group earlier this year, described the results as “consistent with expectations”.

“As previously reported, on the market, especially in Europe, is becoming more and more competitive,” said Mr Morrison.

“Besides the world Cup and the unusually hot weather in Europe has also led to the softness of the orders during the peak summer months of July and August. If these trends continue, both, the growth of group bookings can be flat for the full year given the expected reduction in support for the brands.”

“In response to these circumstances, we continue our program of strict cost control and the average order value continues to benefit from the increase in the fee base rate implemented in February.”
