Start on the Right Path
Lowering your price to beat your competition will result in all hostels gaining less income per booking. Our software has functions that enables other ways to gain more bookings and more income per booking.
We make your business more enjoyable.
Our software will reduce the days it takes to accummulate cash to cover all your costs and we will concurrently increase the profit you gain from each profit day. Your workload will be greatly reduced.
More Room Types
Without our software you are turning away people that want to book at your hostel. EG. You offer a Twin Room when people seek to book a Triple Bed Room. Our software will enable you to list one room as multiple room types so you do not lose bookings.
Our booking engine for your website is tailorable by you so you can change the text and include photos. One room can be sold under multiple categories and one booking removes all the tied categories. This enables you to gain more revenue per room. Our Booking Engine will intelligently place early dorm bookings in to the same room, and if you want, last minute bookings can be sent to different rooms to enable 100% automated occupancy.
Our Software is better than free of charge. If you do not believe this then download the PDF User Stories on the last page of this website to read why and how. Our software always increases revenue so that our yearly fee of US$130 a month will be more than paid for by the extra income our software generates within the first month. So ask for a one month free trial and this software will generate the extra money you need to make the initial payment 3 month payment. There is a one-time US$250 setup fee.
Nothing can be more simple to setup. You choose the day you want to start. When you download the software you will see all your Hostelworld and HostelBookers bookings already in the software. There is no extra computer hardware needed other than the standard reception computer you now have. No Servers are required.
Once you are a user of our software we will inform you of tips and settings that will give you an advantage over hostels you compete with. The sooner you start before your competition and put these tips and settings to use then the more difficult it will be for your competition to catch up with you and get as many bookings as your hostel.
The software is like another employee for you. The software manages all prices and allocations you give to agents. The software also accepts and places the bookings in to the reception component so staff can see all bookings automatically. Then there is the integrated booking engine for your website - - -
The answer has a lot to do with momentum of bookings, the perception of a hostels popularity, ensuring people get offered the room/bed type the most desire, facilitating higher agent ratings, the professional online look of the hostel and the feeling of security generated, 100% allocation in low periods and reduced allocations in peak periods, zero release time, additional agent integrations, dealing with guests as people and not as numbers, and gaining higher revenue from 80% occupancy than your competitors gain from 100% occupancy. etc
Because we provide you a complete throughput solution and not sub optimising software that causes costs in other areas of your hostel, It is user friendly, gives you freedom to manage your hostel remotely, is very reliable, it gives you more control of your business, it is fun to use, with the extra income our software will generate you can buy the things you have always wanted.
Hostels have made decisions on what system to use to manage their hostel without knowing that this software existed. This is because for the first 12 years the software was only known to Swiss based hostels. Only since 2012 has there become more users outside of Switzerland.
Our Software is like Apple Macintosh - no crashing of software. We don't give you constant headaches with crashes.
No onsite server required,

Our Track record is the best guarantor of our software continuing to work. Join our FaceBook User Group to read what existing users think about our software. You will then hear from the best authority how we synchronise every minute every hour every day of the year without any hassle to you or your staff.
Agents dont provide the 7 days a week support we do provide our users, so we also fill this gap for you. When agents are closed then ask us. There is no extra fee for support as it is included in the base monthly fee. If you feel you need around the clock 24/7 worldwide on call support then it is available to be contracted. But as of 2013 not one hostel has seen a need to pay for extra support. Our disaster recovery is instant and faster than if you had to rely on in-house it specialists to restore your LAN network and LAN hardware.
We provide the Cloud Data Storage to synchronise the software on your computers. This provides far superior security and reliability of your data than relying on your own server or PC's. We have your data secured in two countries with mirrorred data being exchanged between each server farm.
Because our software synchronises with all agents every minute of every day without you noticing any CPU or Bandwidth constrainsts. This means that you have the most secure and reliable software available.
We use the most advanced Cloud data management technique. If you use software that uses legacy synchronisation then they will only synchronise data a set times each day and not allow you to provide online 100% allocation. With these legacy old style systems you will have arrivals at your hostel before you are informed of their booking.
