There is no cost to you as we provide software that generates money for you. We will even provide you a hostel website , hosting and Google Search Engine Optimisation SEO for 50 euros a month that saves you around 2000 euros from having to develop it yourself. But the website is more than a website as it is SEO infused so it will work for you gaining you many more commission free direct bookings than an other software and website combination could. We will then credit money to you for every direct automated booking you gain via this website. If your hostel gains over 10% of bookings online direct then you automatically qualify for 0.10 cents per direct booking. 0.15 cents for over 25% direct, 0.20 cents for over 40% direct and 0.25 cents per direct booking when you gain over 50% of bookings in a six month billing period via our integrated booking engine known as HomePage (https://funkyhostel.bookworldhostels.com/) or DormOnline (http://hotel.thebulldog.com/amsterdam/prices-bookings) in your Website, FaceBook Page, Google, HostelGuru App, or Tripadvisor

The software cost is between a low 50 to 150 euros a month that has your price based on amount of beds and agent integrations. The software efficiencies will cause an increase in revenue for your hostel of 500 to over 5,000 euros extra to you each month in more bookings than you would have experienced with other software. Many hostels receive at extra 20% to 80% income per year and some reach at least 100% increase in profit per year. We are more than just Reservation Management software with an inbuilt Channel Manager. We are the solution for your future success.

To be specific. Each one of the following outcomes more than compensates you for the cost of our software. You only need to find one that applies to you and the result of alleviating that cost then neutralises what we charge so our software is effectively free:

  1. The No Show & Late Cancellation report shows you all bookings that you can legally debit for one night full cost or according to your rules. You can set this report to be auto emailed to you every day.
  2. You can debit all bookings on your phone or ipad that come from our integrated booking engine. No need to establish your own credit card acquirer account with your local bank. You can have these debits accumulate so they are credited to reduce the amount you transfer us to pay your invoice or you can have these debits transferred directly to your bank account.
  3. Don’t be fooled to think using an agent provided booking engine is better than ours. You will be stuck giving full allocation through peak periods to that agent and lose unnecessary commission. Furthermore, they can not sell your rooms as multiple types so you lose bookings to your competitors.
  4. Our integrated booking engine for your website is very intelligent enabling you promote one room type concurrently as multiple room types so you gain more bookings at your full room price.
  5. The integrated booking engine can be in as many languages as you like and will cause a minimum of 5% increase in direct bookings when compared to just using English. The use of the English booking engine usually increases profit from direct bookings by at least 100% when replacing an existing booking engine.
  6. Being able to promote and even sell tours via the supplied integrated booking engine further communicates how well you look after guests and causes more people to commit to completing the booking direct via your website.
  7. Being able to pre set 2 night minimum per booking and restrict agent allocations for peak periods keeps the agents working hard to sell your beds fast before you restrict their allocation. For those agents that provide you good service then you can adjust the commission rate so you lose less or no commission to those agents and they still get to sell your beds.
  8. Our software has an inbuilt Channel Manager at no extra cost so if you are using an expensive Channel Manager then we remove this cost.
  9. The software is also integrated with MyAllocator and SiteMinder channel managers if you feel you need to use them.
  10. Our free SEO advice enables you to improve your Google raking so you gain more bookings and makes it more expensive for agents to pay adwords to intercept your bookings.
  11. The software automates SEO improvement every day. The longer you use the software then the further you distance your hostel business from competitors not giving daily attention to their Google ranking.
  12. Being able to pre configure off-peak months with different room types and sell them in advance direct and integrated with agents is a massive bonus for seasonally affected hostels.
  13. The integrated ID Scanner positively increases the feeling of security at your hostel and discourages opportunistic unplanned theft. The end result is improved reviews and ratings that attract more bookings.
  14. Automated emails to all guests, at times you determine, improves communication with guests thus causing increased participation resulting in happier guests leading to improved reviews and ratings to attract more bookings.
  15. The hosted, SEO optimised website managed by a holder of a Masters Degree in Internet Communication is just the start of further initiatives for you.

Once you pay the 200 euros Setup Fee then email to us your room list so we can configure the software to your room structure. Of course you can later change this configuration yourself and with our assistance if you want.
