Hostel Management B2B Service Directory
Dorm Project from Hostel Office
Dorm Project is the Front Office software with over 15 years proven market operation. The only hostel PMS that gives priority to enabling hostels gain as many direct bookings as possible and as a result integrates with Google Hotels, Google Maps, Google Locations, and Google Plus so guests can book direct in to the hostel and pay 100% of the bed price direct to the hostel.
Programmed by Swiss based owner/partners so the software does not rely on retaining expensive staff or at risk of data loss. We are dedicated to keeping the software relevant to your hostel so is tailorable to your specific needs.
Synchronises with Google Maps, Google Hotel Finder, Google Plus, Google Locations, TripAdvisor, Hostelworld, Hostelbookers, HI Hostels, HostelsClub, Booking.com, Agoda, GOMIO, Facebook and more.
All your data is replicated on your computers so you are not at risk of data loss. When the internet connection fails you can still see your data. Data is Backed up on servers in Germany and Disaster recovery Backup is locationed in Switzerland.
Probably the most advanced website booking engine available for hostels. Automates yield management. One room can be sold under multiple categories and one booking removes all the tied categories. This enables you to gain more revenue per room and stops people going to your competitors website to book. The engine is tailorable by you so you can change the text and include photos.
Our graphic screen follows a logical structure that makes Dorm Project probably the easiest Front Office software for staff to learn. Training videos are available to all hostels that result in a near zero time learning curve. Drag and Drop functionality enables the easiest last minute bed allocation optimisation.
You do not have to manually allocate beds and rooms to new bookings as all bookings fall in to their rooms automatically with multiple updates within one minute and not one per hour or longer. This reduces your risk of overbookings and ensures your prices changes are updated real time. Any booking from an agent automatically reduces allocation on all agent sites. Just as prices can be changed according to the season so can agent allocations within seconds so you are not wasting agent commission payments in peak periods when bookings can easily be obtained from your website.
Two click email sending to guests. Pre load any number of emails to send to the guest with two clicks.
Tours and Services:
These can be listed on your booking engine so as to encourage guests to complete their bookings. You can choose to request payment at the time of booking or simply for the guest to indicate they are interested. Eg. Breakfast can be booked at the time of booking a bed.
Managers can download the software on to as many of their computers as they like so they can access the front office from their laptop anywhere in the world. Mac, Windows, Linux or any combination. True cloud based software for hostels.
Many options for coordination and integration for optimisation and retention of guests within your network of hostels. A further agent function enables you to turn your local Tourism Office, Bus Station or partner hostel etc in to an agent for your hostel where they can book guests in to your hostel and receive recognition for the cooperation.
We have extensive report structures but we will meet your specific requirements as we understand that all hostels have their specific likes needs and compulsory requirements. Our reports are not only for the past and present but also for the future that includes Occupancy, Nationalities, Revenue etc.
Our audit trail enables each staff member to to have a separate login. The audit follows each staff member's actions as well as accounts for each change within a booking. Managers can correct mistakes Supervisors can remove mistakes and Owners can delete mistakes.

Hostels with less than 50 beds pay 50 euros a month and for 50 to 500 beds pay up to 125 euros a month. If you introduce new users then your price is reduced by 25 euros per month. But the price you pay is not your biggest cost. You biggest cost is not using this software because the software and solutions wrapped around it generate far more bookings than you can gain from other paths. eg. we have users that pay 100 euros a month that have gained a 500% increase in direct bookings and 80% increase in total revenue in a year that they sustain for every year from now on. Smaller hostels with 50 beds in a seasonal not-so-popular location that may be making $100,000 a year now, we will get to over $125,000 in revenue over the first year from using the software.
