This report is based on the STAY WYSE Hostel Booking Sources Survey, which monitors the main distribution channels through which hostels and other youth travel accommodation (YTA) providers secure bookings.
The 2017 report offers hostel operators insights that enable them to assess their position in the marketplace, benchmark their performance, and identify opportunities to increase revenue. Global and regional OTAs, travel agents, tour operators and other sources of bookings for hostels are examined. The report also offers a glimpse at how accommodation operators currently view sharing economy accommodation platforms such as Airbnb.
