Managing a hostel can also be very stressful and time-consuming, especially in the hostel booking season of the year. The paperwork is plentiful and it takes time to search through heaps of paperwork for information on students. Some student applications even get missing in all the paperwork. Communicating with students is another challenge as there are lots of students in the hostel which need to receive important information at specific times but never read the notice board.
JOIN GETROOMS NOW
Founded in November of 2016 and based in Accra, Ghana, GetRooms is a trusted community marketplace for hostels to list and manage their properties. We allow students to discover and book hostel accommodations in Ghana — online from a mobile phone, tablet or laptop.

Hence making hostel management transparent and efficient. GetRooms is the largest room booking service in Ghana with over 10,000 students who search for hostels just like yours.

EASY TO USE
Hostel owners or managers decide to list their hostels on GetRooms because of the convenience that it brings. Hostels create profiles for themselves and their property, choose their own price and availability and set guidelines for students.
GETROOMS WORKS IN 3 SIMPLE STEPS
Students go online to our website, getroom.co and search for your hostel. They review your price, facilities, location, terms and conditions etc that your hostel has to offer and then go ahead to place a booking for free.
Managers will confirm the bookings and automatically send your payment details to students to make payment within 48 hours.
Once payment is made you can accept them into your hostel and the student will be notified via text and email.
A BUSINESS BUILT ON COMMUNITY AND TRUST
GetRooms is committed to fostering trust between our students and hostels. Together, we work to ensure that our community has safe and positive experiences while using GetRooms. To do this, we have built the best-in-class monitoring, reporting and evaluation tools and procedures that empower hostels and students to make smart and safe decisions about how to transact with one another. Hostels are empowered to welcome thoughtful and respectful students, and you always have the final say about who is granted accommodation to your hostel.
