Analysis to all our designs are being carried out internally before we sit down to make perfect pixel designs. During this analytic period, we take information from stakeholders, do competitors analysis and find pain points to resolve in the design process.
Mapping user flows allow us to create smooth transitions to lead users to complete tasks. We map the simplest possible paths to show our users how to complete a specific task. The user flows are meant to guide the users through clear visual layouts and contextual feedbacks.
At Hostelworld we pay special attention to property management tools and work hard to create smooth flows and interactions. Our aim is to make the most complex tasks fun and easy to use. One of the most exciting features of the property management tools are the dashboards where the users can have an overview of the hostels performance.
Dealing with prices for rates and calendars for availability on large hostels require precise management tools displaying tables with complex information. The availability screens are designed to enhance visual appearance and to make it easy for the user to select rates for different days of the calendar.
Marketing campaigns are key to maintaining brand awareness and improve our communication. We use Hostelworld blog to communicate a unique culture of world travelers. In the last years, a priority goal has been to show to the world fun is the vibrant social life of hostel travelers as much as communicating the variety of budget traveling around the world.
