Top notch customer service

Pros

We found Hostaway to be the perfect option for our property management side of the business. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] went above and beyond meeting with us to get us started and through the first few months of operation. Now we deal primarily with the customer service via the app, and they get back to us immediately. They will either fix the issue we're having or we dialogue and troubleshoot to fix. They are constantly working to streamline the program for property managers in terms of calendar updates, updating listings etc. We host between 20-30 properties and they've been great to work with. Highly recommend.

Cons

Sometimes the updates are glitchy, but customer service immediately attends to the issue. It's a newer software and very inexpensive compared to its competitors so minors issues are is to be expected, but they troubleshoot and update constantly.

Reasons for Choosing Hostaway

We liked [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and our interactions with him. The price was definitely what caught our eye, but our overall customer experience has been top notch. When we dealt with Hostfully we didn't care for our sales rep. He didn't listen to our needs, didn't send out time reminders and links for meetings, and was overall no where near as responsive as we needed them to be. Hostaway won us over.

Great Customer Service and All Questions answered

Everything was easy and explained to me to implement easily.

Pros

I liked how easy it was to implement with the help of the customer service professional. I was shown all the features and am going to use more than what I initially came to the product for.

Cons

None so far. Everything is great after fully implementing.

Reasons for Choosing Hostaway

Ease of use and for smaller business needs.

Reasons for Switching to Hostaway

Not answering questions and a bug in the system when I had double bookings.

Not suitable for guesthouse

Pros

Easy setup, good and responsive support team

Cons

The software is really not suitable for a daily use for Guesthouse. It had major operational flaws : - it's not possible to change the room of the guest in the property if reservation is from a channel manager - not possible to see easyly what is the balance of each reservation, need to make a lot of click - really complicated to add items (like breakfast) and then bill them - booking.com integration problem - if the client change his reservation on booking.com , it will create a duplicated reservation and need to contact support to remove the other one The booking engine is really complicated with no translation, only english. They propose google translation but the integration is messy.

No Other PMS Compares

The software solves a lot of issues for me, but three core problems were solved because of Hostaway. 1) Channel distribution, 2) Automated guest communication, 3) Cleaning/task coordination.

Pros

Hostaway was able to distribute my listings across the main sales channels with ease. While it does have a lot of other features the primary reason for purchasing this software was for the ease of managing multiple units across multiple OTA's.

Cons

Like any other software, trying to learn how the platform works takes time, but overall it was super easy!

Reasons for Choosing Hostaway

Honestly, I had a demo with Guesty and the salesperson seemed rude. I also didn't like the commission pricing model they had.
