Claim your hostel at the Hostel Search Engine!
We combined more then 30.000 hostels and 250.000 hostel reviews from all major booking site.
We listened to our users and tried to made our Hostel Search Engine better to search, navigate, compare and select a hostel then any other site on the web. If you think that its rubbish, please tell me why, so we can improve our service.
This is how I think a Hostel should present itself: The Flying Pig Downtown Hostel
If you claim your hostel, we give you free tools to promote your hostel on the web. If you implement our suggestions, you will drive more traffic to your website and your hostel!
Here is what you can do for free:
- Add direct contact information like phone number, email, website, and Skype name. Your contact info and a link directly to your own website will be placed on your profile. So TFTHostel users can contact you directly. Learn how to get started
- Add a Flickr slideshow with good quality pictures, so you decide which pictures you place on Flickr, and automatically the pictures will be shown on you TFTHostels profile. We are creating a widget, so you can use the flickr slideshow on your own site. Learn more
- Add YouTube movies and a YouTube channel. Pictures and movies explain more then 100 words, so make a movie from your hostel and place it on Youtube. Learn more
- Add a blog RSS feed. If you own a blog, you can place the blog headline directly on your TFTHostels profile. It is easy to setup and can generate some extra traffic to your blog. Learn more
- Add the Plugoo application, so travelers can chat with hostel employees, directly from the site. If you use a chat program like MSN or Google Chat, you can use this service for free without any local configuration. Learn more
- Add Twitter account to the profile. With Twitter you can tell your friends, guests and future quest what is happening in the hostel. It is a weird service, but if you understand the power after some time, it is very useful. Learn more
So, if you are a hostel owner and did not claim your hostel, please do so. You can add great free stuff on your profile page. More travelers will see your hostel, so more bookings will follow!
Have fun, and happy travels.
