AaoHostels.com launches India’s first Backpackers Hostel Marketplace

Bengaluru: December 25, 2017


AAO Hostels becomes India’s first and largest backpackers hostel-only booking platform. AAO Hostels had won Idea2POC competition organised by Karnataka Startup Cell and Department of Tourism, Government of Karnataka on November 15, 2016 in Bangalore. Following this win, within a year, AAO Hostels delivered its promised launch today and has dedicated the portal to the country’s travel and tourism growth.

It provides a unique feature to book multiple beds in multiple hostels at multiple locations. This feature is unparalleled in the world. It will facilitate the backpackers to book the entire itinerary at once and save a lot of time on the go. Currently, the portal collects a nominal amount upfront, and remaining has to be paid at the property during Check-in.

“AaoHostels.com will not only be a backpackers booking platform in the coming future. It will also inform the guests about the events in the cities they are booking a hostel. Adding to this module, there will also be a franchise section which will be a communication bridge between the budding entrepreneurs and hostel owners”, says Mr. Saurabh Jain, Co-founder.

AaoHostels.com has launched with services in 5 cities and is likely to grow to 22 Indian backpacking destinations in next 6 months. The portal provides detailed information about the Hostel. It includes introduction, photo gallery, exhaustive amenities’ list, booking/cancellation policies, google maps and bed/room type detailed description. Such facilities allow a user to get a fair idea of the properties before their check-in.

The portal is backed up by 24 hours guest grievance cell via phone call, emails and social media reach outs.
