User Flows

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.

Property Management Tools

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.
