Get To Know Us

If you are a hotel or a hostel owner needing the oomph of a brand, we can come in and give you the benefit of our sales team, our revenue nous or our preferential OTA agreements. We can potentially improve your turnover by 15% and make your costs of doing business 5% more effective, simply by joining a larger business.

Or you have identified a property that would make a great hostel in a great location? We can help by supporting your application for investment, as we know the process and the best way to get a yes at the end of it. We can help you with refurbishment, we have the contacts and the suppliers that make it cost effective. We can then take the risk out of operating the hostel, we know how to deliver and revenue-rich the delivers profit.

It’s not just us, it’s our industry. The hostel market is the next big thing in hospitality and offers opportunity around every turn. Take a dive around your city and you’ll see the market saturated with overpriced, overdressed hotels all competing with the same product. Hostels provide quality accommodation for a truly competitive price. And great value for money will always be a successful business model.

Here are the keys to success; commit yourself to your business, communicate with your customers, follow our roadmap and work together with Safestay to grow your business.

If this gets your engine running, we’d love to hear from you today.
