Creating a New Hostel
To add a new hostel, click on the 'New Hostel' option from the Hostels menu at the top of the page.
This will bring you to a screen where you can enter information about your hostel. Please note that some fields are required such as Hostel Name, Address 1, City, Office Phone Number, Email Address, and your preferred currency. Most of the information you enter on this screen, except currency, will be visible to customers that visit your page.
Once you click submit, your hostel information will be entered and you will be taken to a screen where you can fill in additional details about your hostel. On this screen, you can enter information such as your website, hostel description, driving directions, general policies, store policies, and latitude and longitude of your hostel location.
Now that your hostel information is all set, you will want to add a bed group so that you can add beds.
