Our customers say it best

Find out why our clients love working with us

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.

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.

Frequently asked questions

About Hostfully's Property Management Platform

This feature allows you to automate the collection of payments from your guests. You can create distinct rules for each property or reservation about how payments should be processed. For example: you can opt for 50% of the total booking fee to be processed upon booking and the remaining share after check-out.

You will be subject to a processing fee per transaction based on which payment processor you choose to use for the transaction.

We understand processing fees can be a headache, but as a way around, our fun rate multiplier feature can help you markup reservation rates and fees on specific channels, so the fee will essentially be covered by the guest.

Yes. Hostfully’s Property Management Platform is capable of both collecting and refunding payments.
Please note that any processing fees charged by the payment processor will not be refunded.

Yes. You can manually input your guest’s credit card information into our system and opt to either charge the card on the spot or schedule a future transaction within the booking. For security reasons, we do not store credit card information for future bookings.
