How much it cost to Hostels and what I get from this?

I understand that some hostels are typically small setups with limited budgets. Thus, my charging varies from project to project based on scope of work and timelines. My contracts range from one to few months depending on hostels requirement.

You can contact me with your question and if you want me to work with your hostel, then we can work on the offers.

Why work with me?

After working as a management consultant for about 11 years, I decided to go independent – both for work and for location. I stayed at hostels across various countries on several of my travels before, but after I volunteered with a hostel in Goa, I realized, that I want to associate with hostels in a more professional level. Given my experience as a management consultant, this venture lets me utilize my experience and skills for Hostel Industry.

Starting out as a volunteer for guest engagement and social media marketing, I transitioned into management of hostels and then into setting up properties, processes & operations. I have worked with hostels in Goa, Mumbai, and Bangalore on 30-60 beds properties.

The knowledge I gain with each hostel adds to my experience and skills that are required to take a hostel towards a sustainable growth trajectory. I am extremely familiar with hostel culture as a guest and also with challenges of managing a hostel in India.
