Hostfully Digital Guidebooks are optimized for any device, making it accessible to every guest

Don’t let an app get in the way
of a great guest experience

There is no need to waste your guests’ time by telling them to download an app for their short stay. Simply share your guidebook via a unique link or QR code that can be opened on any device. If your guest prefers to unplug, they can read a printed version in your property or download a PDF version.

That’s not all. You can even extend your Hostfully Guidebook content and make it available through an Amazon Echo or Google Home device. Alexa or Google will provide details like your house rules and your expert local knowledge in an interactive voice conversation. Guests can even check out using Hostfully’s voice integration.

How this feature benefits you:

  • Hassle-free experience for your guests. There is no app to download – all they need is a link.
  • Hostfully’s Digital Guidebooks are optimized for all desktop and mobile devices, no guest will be left out.
  • Multiple formatting options for the PDF version allows you to choose the best fit for the look and feel of your property.
  • Available offline if PDF downloaded beforehand, so guests don’t have to rely on a stable wifi connection.
  • Makes it easier for you to implement self check-in and check-out.

Our customers say it best

Hear from clients why they love using Hostfully
Hostfully has lots of great features at a fairly affordable price compared to other softwares. The onboarding was excellent and the customer service may be the best part about it. The enhanced reporting is what made me switch to Hostfully, it has saved me tons of time on the back end billing home owners.
Austin P, Turquoise Antler Short Term Rentals
Hostfully has a wide range of integrations with other technology software companies that we want to work with. Their “pipeline management “ functionality makes it super easy to get a quick understanding of all bookings and inquiries across all listings. On top of that, they have one of the best customer support teams that we’ve seen.
Jasper Ribbers, Overnight Success
Been great! Looking forward to opening more doors with Hostfully. Hostfully has been able to streamline my property onboarding and makes it much easier to have your properties on multiple channels without getting double bookings. The Hostfully customer service team is amazing and very helpful. Always there for me when I have questions.

hostfully property management testimonial review
We've been using Hostfully for 5 years to manage our now 40+ properties in Costa Rica (Osa Property Management). We started using Hostfully when we were managing just five homes, and as we've grown, Hostfully has become even more important to our success.

Hostfully has become an integral part of delivering an exceptional guest experience at Moving Mountains. Our homes are complex with many features & intricacies and the guidebooks have allowed us to easily share the relevant information so guests can safely use every feature. Now we get fewer troubleshooting calls and better reviews. We could not be more satisfied!
Robin Craigen, Moving Mountains
Hostfully is a winner in my book. It's easy to use - everything is straightforward and intuitive, saving me time and hassle. The support team is also fantastic. They're quick to respond and always ready to assist, ensuring that any issues are resolved promptly. If you're looking for a hassle-free solution that delivers results, Hostfully is the way to go.

About Hostfully's Digital Guidebooks

Yes, we have partnered with Blurb to provide a way to print a high-quality version of your guidebook. You can follow the instructions here.

However, we do recommend that you strive to keep everything digital. Printed guidebooks are difficult to update and are not environmentally sustainable.
With Hostfully’s Digital Guidebooks, you’re able to communicate everything a guest needs to know from check-in to check-out about your property, and even provide local recommendations. They’re easy to build & manage, and require no technical expertise at all. When sharing, you can either print, download the PDF version, or provide a simple link to your guest that is optimized to be opened on any device or browse. You can also upsell your extra services and create more revenue streams for your business.
Everything about your property the guest should know! How to check-in, where to find certain amenities, how the laundry machine or the hot tub’s endless, really. You can also add as many local recommendations as you want. Your favorite cafes or restaurants, tours your guests can sign up for, places to visit, things to experience, and more. You can also add gift cards or vouchers, simultaneously supporting small businesses in your area.

Beyond this, you can also upsell your own services. Do you offer pick up/drop off? Great! Add that in. How about mid-stay cleaning? Awesome. Add that in too. With upselling, you can create additional revenue streams, which helps you increase your profits while also providing a 5* experience to your guests.
