NOT (for now): America, Asia, Oceania, Africa.
We are also looking for business partners, investors and managing partners.
DO WRITE BACK IF:
- You have a hostel and you want to sell (in total or a percentage)
- You have money to invest (as silent investor, managing partner or standard business partner)
DON'T WRITE BACK IF:
- You don't have experience as a manager in good hostels, you don't have a hostel, you don't have money to invest and you will waste our time.
WHAT ELSE WE OFFER:
If you have a hostel you can join X Hostel for a yearly fee. You will work on real time operational spreadsheats, get joint Pr/Marketing (website, fliers, merchandise etc), a large database and reach of guests and travelers (direct and from partner travel websites), consultancy, manager training, loyalty cards hostel to hostel (that includes some other hostel chains and independent hostels), you will share know-how with other owners/managers,
We are re-branding and investing a lot in:
- a team of professionals in the industry
- re-modelling our business objectives (not only party hostels but cater to selected and different targets of guests)
- creating a permanent link between guests and X Hostel (so far we have 120 people tattooed with our X but we want to open to other kind of relationship with travelers)
- push from xhostel.eu and all related to our new image xhostel.com from next year (new site under construction and lots of ad campaigns planned).
- experience in other hostels for hostel staff and management
Looking forward to hear from you,
