Before your profile can be activated on Hostelworld to receive reservations, you have to ensure that your availability is set up correctly and updated regularly.
As bookings made through Hostelworld are automatically confirmed based on your availability and do not allow for overbookings, it is important that you are comfortable to update the availability on your own via Hostelworld Inbox or Counter (Hostelworld's free PMS).
If you use a Channel Manager to control your bookings, all your updates have to be done through them.
