Zostel launches app for iOS and Android users
It offers trip recommendations, prioritised booking access, The Great Zostel Map and more
In a major new development, Zostel, the chain of hostels offering experiential travel, has recently launched its app for both iOS and Android users. Now live on the App Store and the Play Store, the Zostel app will offer users convenience while booking their stays at any of Zostel’s 64 properties across India and two hostels in Nepal. The new app will offer users prioritised booking access where users who book through the app will get access to dates that haven’t been opened yet on Zostel’s OTA partners’ or even Zostel’s website. The app will also feature The Great Zostel Map, in which Zostel, with the help of Google Maps, showcases all its properties in India and Nepal and directly book them. Travellers can simply zoom into any region of the country, browse through the various destinations and Zostel properties and book their stay.
Furthermore, the last-minute travel planners, who haven’t picked their destination and are unsure of where to go, will just need to enter the dates they wish to travel on. The Zostel app will show all the available properties on those dates in the two countries, from where travellers can choose their destinations. To give users the ultimate travel experience, the Zostel app also has a list of curated destinations that match specific travel styles. For instance, whether you’re looking for locations that are ideal to satisfy your road trip dreams or those that allow you to experience magic through snowfall, destinations that have delectable local food, or offbeat places where you can escape the bustling cities, the Zostel app offers recommendations for all travel preferences.
Speaking on the app launch, Deep Banka, Chief Operating Officer (COO), said, “Since its inception, Zostel has built a loyal fan base of travellers who are constantly seeking new experiences across different locations. They rely on Zostel for recommendations alongside affordable, safe and vibrant accommodations. The new Zostel app brings all of this and more under a single umbrella, and building this app was the next natural progression for us in our journey. We are present in over 60 locations currently, and we will only grow further in the next couple of quarters, so creating an app is a necessity for us at this point. We are confident that the app will be popular among travellers and look forward to their response. Users booking through the Zostel app will gain prior access to inventory that gives them the opportunity to plan their travel well in advance.”
