Meet Ana,
your next guest.

Ana opens a beautiful welcome email in her native language and downloads Guestbuddy, your hostel app. A great first impression!

Ana enjoys reading travel tips prepared by you and your team. It feels way more personal than a generic city guide:
‘Cafe closest to the hostel?’
‘Where can I eat something traditional?’
‘Craziest place for a night of dancing?’
‘How to get to the Old Town?’
Three weeks before arrival, you send Ana a push notification, offering a ride from the airport and an upcoming City Tour. Why not? It’s at her fingertips. She happily buys the tour.
Just a few days before her stay, you invite Ana to check in online. She quickly enters her details and pays online. You both avoid the lineup at reception.
On the hostel wall, Ana spots a post from
Leo. He’s inviting everyone to a local pub
for his birthday. She happily accepts. A
great way to start her trip!
High five!
Another happy guest. You improved your online reputation and grew your revenue. Keep up the good work.
