The last HostelSkills Conference took place in Krakow, Poland in April, 18-19. It’s been almost a month since I came back, so it is a time for the sum up and my reflections.
The Property Management Systems (PMS) are basic essentials of each accommodation. The time of paper books and excel documents has passed long time ago. There is a big pool of solutions that are offered nowadays for the hostels. And it is good to know them and have those that suites your needs best.
Being out there in the digital world is something obligatory to each business nowadays. And whether you like it or not if you want to be heard or noticed, you need to be at least on one social media channel.
As the 2017 is coming to an end it is time to sum up what exciting have been happening this year in the hostel industry. Without a doubt the industry is blooming, and for the past 2 years we could see the rise of the boutique and up-scale hostels.
There is this trend that each industry has its own conferences. The ones for the hospitality and the tourism industry are nothing new. However they usually tend to be big and mostly focused on the hotels.
