This panel discussion was on the topic of volunteers & work exchange in hostels. All panel discussions take place online via Google Hangouts, and are both streamed live & recorded for later viewing. This panel took place Wednesday, May 3rd. The recording is below.
What happens when you want to open a hostel in your perfect location, but that happens to be a place that isn't very well known? What are some of the challenges you face operating a hostel in a non-tourist area? More importantly, how do you get over these issues?
This online panel discussion will focus on the use of technology by hostels, specifically with apps such as gloqon or hostelite. We have gathered panelists from both the technology creation side as well as the hostel operator perspective.
There are many important aspects to running a hostel, but without having guests, few will matter. Many hostel owners or managers find marketing to be difficult: ambiguous, overwhelming, or not realizing it's necessary until it's too late.
