"Backpackers have two main questions about their hostel: who's here, and what's going on?" said Hallways CEO Benjamin Moshe. "The Hallways app lets guests answer both of those questions, before they even arrive, and get the most out of every leg of their travels."
Hallways currently supports over 3,000 hostels in Europe, with worldwide expansion planned for later this year. The company partners directly with hostels who post their events and message back and forth with guests, creating a seamless, social hostel experience.
"We've had an incredibly enthusiastic response from both travelers and hostels," said Moshe. "Hostels are the most social places on earth, and Hallways gives both guests and hostel managers the app they deserve."
Hallways is the social network for hostels: it’s the only app that lets backpackers find the people and events in their hostel, during their stay. Guests can download the Hallways app for iOS via the iTunes store (https://itunes.apple.com/
Travelers not staying in a hostel, or those who’d simply like to try out the app, can check into the “Open” area in their city.
Hostels are the accommodation of choice for the 93 million young travelers who visit Europe each year - not just because they’re cheap, but because they’re perhaps the most social places on earth. Hostel guests are looking specifically to meet other travelers and go out on the town, and leading hostels feature large, open common rooms, and a full slate of daily events and parties.
