Hey everyone, welcome to the February 2021 newsletter. We are now moving toward doing everything via YouTube videos. This means less typing for me and (hopefully) more engaging content for you. Let us know in the comments if you prefer videos or written blog posts.
As stated in the video, below you will find links to all the goodness we have promised.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR HOSTEL PHOTOS POP
We met with Hollie Roberts (a real backpacker) to show off how BoxBrownie can easily do object removal, photo enhancement, and even virtual renovations. Check out all the sample photo enhancements in this video.
LANGUAGE SUPPORT FOR HOSTELSNAP
Learn about our new support for multiple languages on the HostelSnap direct booking engine. Volunteers needed to provide translations.
SELLING OUR HOSTEL IN SAN FRANCISCO
Here's a rare opportunity for a select person to take over ownership of our flagship hostel in San Francisco. We have a proposed transaction for onsite owner-operators that will make it really easy to make your dream come true. Details are located in this video.
