Happier guests, better reviews and more revenues.


How can Guestbuddy help your hostel?

Hospitality is a simple equation. The more value you create for your guests, the more value they create for you. Hostel reputation is the key driver of your success.

Meet Ana,
your next guest.

Together with the booking confirmation, Ana gets a link to your hostel app.

A great first impression!


Guestbuddy helps Ana discover the city even before the arrival:

‘Cafe closest to the hostel?’
‘Where can I eat something traditional?’
‘How to get to the Old Town?’


7 days before arrival, Ana gets a push notification about a City Tour.

Why not? It’s at her fingertips.


3 days before arrival, Ana checks in online exactly as she did before taking the plane!


Time to fly! While Ana waits for the plane, she scrolls through a list of events and fellow guests in the hostel.


On the hostel wall, Ana spots a post from
Leo. He’s inviting everyone to a local pub
for his birthday. 

High five!
