How to introduce the hostel concept to your guests? 7 Articles you have to share

How can you teach your clients about the hostel travel style? How can they understand the meaning of hostel, the hostel rules, etiquette?

What questions do you receive over and over again? These might be solved and answered already on your website. We tell you right here how you can give your hostel guests all the information they need.

With Hostelgeeks we dedicated an entire section just on this topic, the guide to hostels.

Every article we curated is there so your clients can prepare better, understand the value of hosteling and how to behave – and build friendships.

Now, you can reduce your problems you might had with a few guests by “educating” them. We do not really want to use the term “educating”, but it seems to be the most spread word on this matter by hostel managers and owners.
