Has anyone tried the hostel channel management system called MyAllocator?
Our web based hostel channel management product. This allows a hostel to update their bed/room prices and availability and to send it out to multiple booking engines.
We currently offer updates to Hostelsclub.com, Gomio.com, Hostelworld.com and Go2hostels.com. Hostelbookers.com have confirmed that they will come on board early 2010 and we are in discussions with a number of other booking engines.
My Allocator is great system. It makes managing allocations so much easier, you can send it updated bed prices and availability to multiple booking engines effortlessly. Don't really know how we managed without it and my frontline staff swear by it!
I am using myallocator now about 1 year and i am very satisfied with it. I have a hotel in Zanzibar (http://www.sansibarurlaub.de) where the internet is very slow and i hardly have a chance to update multiple channels. Instead of 2 hours daily (what would not be possible) for updating availability i need only 5 minutes.
Myallocator is easy to use, has everything you need, good price and the support is perfect. When you have a problem you get within a few hours answer, even on saturday and sunday.
If i would open a new hotel, one of the first things i would do is to subscribe with myallocator.
MyAllocator also likes to inBed.me as well. inBed.me is s social booking site for hostels, beds and couches. Our site not only allows travelers to book their beds, but also to see who will be staying at each hostel during their travel dates. Travelers can then connect with each other to share tips or plan activities. Here are some of benefits of listing:
Their shopper isn't very helpful because it shows the cheapest price on the competitors sites. If you have private rooms, you won't get a good idea of their prices. I'd highly suggest it...but alas, we're moving to ASSD which will have that capability for us.
Myallocator now updates to the channels below and integrates with several PMS providers including loventis soon - Still only £10 per month, no room limits or commission fees -
