Which Channel Managers does HostelBookers work with?

channelmanagerlogos

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!

OFT approve HostelBookers and Hostelworld merger

The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) in London, UK, have approved the merger of HostelBookers and Hostelworld – the number one and two most used hostel booking sites worldwide.

HostelBookers will now become part of the Web Reservations International (WRI) portfolio, much to the delight of Hellman & Friedman – known for a focus of ‘investing in management buyouts in media, telecommunications, financial services, technology and marketing’.

HostelBookers and Hostelworld now have five working days to complete the merge. Under the WRI folio will be Hostelworld.com, HostelBookers.com, Hostels.com, BedandBreakfastworld.com and Backpackonline.com.
