Tipi secures Hostelworld strategic investment

We wish to congratulate our great friends and colleagues at Tipi following its new strategic alliance with Hostelworld.

Tipi’s industry-leading hostel check-in software and sleek smart-locks streamline the check-in process. Guests simply check-in via the Tipi app prior to arrival and access their room using their phone.

During their stay, guests can ‘connect’ via the Tipi app and explore (and soon book) local tours, activities and transport to their next travel destination. Hostel operators can reduce annoying check-in queues and engage electronically with guests by broadcasting messages, offers and travel deals via the Tipi app.

Hostelworld is the world’s leading hostel booking platform, encompassing 17,000 hostel properties and 20,000 other forms of budget accommodation globally. As part of the investment, Hostelworld will support Tipi to achieve ambitious growth plans.

Tipi’s CEO, Jack Bowcott said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Hostelworld. They are the go-to platform for hostel travellers and have a key focus on investing in the best technology for the hostel market. We started Tipi with the mission of making hostels smarter and guests happier. This investment brings us one step closer to achieving this objective, with the opportunity to bring our smart technology to a wider audience of hostels.”

Congratulations to Jack, Arash and the team at Tipi!
