Stayokay and Swiss Youth Hostels expand property folio on HostelBookers

Prominent Dutch hostel chain Stayokay have followed suit with the Swiss Youth Hostels and added the majority of their property folio to HostelBookers.com

While both chains have worked with HostelBookers to some capacity, it was generally the more prominent cities and properties that the chains were advertising with the OTA.

Both chains are working with the channel manager GrowingStones, who have assisted in overseeing the combined addition of roughly 50 properties in the Netherlands and Switzerland.

Andrea Hafner, Application Support for SYH,¬† says, “For Swiss Youth Hostels, HostelBookers is a great additional way to promote our offer to all the corners of the world. I’m excited to see what it can do for our latest project in Saas-Fee, where we will – for the first time – include a spa in one of our hostels.”

Anke Rijntjes, Manager of Revenue & Channels for Stayokay, says ‘Stayokay is proud to be active on HostelBookers thanks to our channel manager Growing Stones. Stayokay is a hostel chain with 27 hostels in the Netherlands situated in the most beautiful places’.

HostelBookers has officially integrated with twenty channel managers to its API, allowing many properties to enjoy an additional revenue stream and new online exposure with the OTA through the easy integration of their preferred software provider.

Which Channel Managers does HostelBookers work with?

Since the start of 2013, HostelBookers.com has had an API to support properties using channel managers.

More and more properties are using a channel manager software – mostly to assist in updating rates and inventory across the multiple OTA sites they work with.

While large hotel and hostel chains have worked this way for years, all types and sizes of accommodation providers are now finding the benefits of having this additional online support. With more channel manager choice than ever, it is easy to source and partner with whoever will compliment your business and wallet the best!
