Just want to update my old post and throw some fresh ideas. I’m Lyuba, together with my husband we own Soul Kitchen hostel in St Petersburg. Our hostel received many awards: #1 Small Hostel 2014, 2016, #1 Europe 2014, 2016 and #1 in Russia 2014, 2015, 2016 by hostelworld, Top 10 Hostel Worldwide by bookingcom, it's currently ranked #1 out of over 1200 properties in Tripadvisor. We have a great experience not only in providing an outstanding service, but also in marketing and financial planning - high education in tourism.
Now we want to move to Europe and open a hostel there, levaing the current hostel to our wonderful manageners team. We prefer to think BIG and ideally wish to open a hostel with 200-400 beds, but also considering a medium size of 80-200 beds. Alot of business planning is already made. Feel free to drop us a line if you are:
- a property owner or a real estate agent, interested in opening a hostel or looking for a professional hostel/hotel managing company
- in process of opening a hostel but need some extra funds
- already have a hostel or a hotel and want to sell or looking for partners to reinvest or expand
- have other business and want to invest in budget accomodation sector
