How to improve Hostelworld Ranking
Your property ranking on Hostelworld can help you to increase your visibility on our platform, in turn driving more bookings.
Below you can find a guide as of to how you can improve your position in the sort order and grow your revenue opportunities:
Compare the rates you give to the different OTA’s on a regular basis
Ensure your rates are competitive in order to obtain your fair market share on our platforms
Keep your availability up to date
List all your rooms and beds to give the customer the option to choose what best suits their needs. Shared accommodation is traditionally the main type chosen by our customers but due to the current situation, private rooms are increasing in popularity.
Keep your calendar updated with availability for at least the next 6 months to obtain longer leadtime bookings and reservations from customers that plan their travels in advance. But focus also on your competitiveness for the shorter leadtime as the booking window is quite short currently.
Set up Length of Stay deals to tackle high value leads
Add different LOS promotions to maximize your sales with customers searching for longer than average lengths of stay.
Opt in to App Rates
Highlight your property by activating App rates to improve your traffic coming from Hostelworld’s App gaining access to our most loyal customers
Set up a Non-Refundable rate and make it Flexible
Advertise your non-refundable rates with as much flexibility as possible, making your property more attractive to prospective customers.
Increase your review score
Always provide the best customer service as possible and encourage your guests to leave a review after their stay.
Keep you profile updated with a good description about your property and high-quality photos showing the best you have to offer. Please also ensure all content is translated into as many languages as possible.
Add Experiences by Counter
