AN INSPIRATIONAL STORY

“It starts with a dream. A dream that Mayank (my partner) and I, two eccentric entrepreneurs, thought of with an ambition to do more in today’s bustling travel sector. Our street smartness for travel, eye for offbeat experiences and guts to jump in the most vibrant hospitality segment i.e. backpacker hostels led us to The Hosteller. And here we are, running a successful backpacker hostel in Bir, HP, letting thousands of travellers to see dreams too.”

FAQ

Who can apply for The Hosteller Franchise?

Anyone who is enthusiastic about travel, understands hospitality and wants to invest in a new-age business idea with great returns is welcome to join the program. Our program also invites people having startup capital but do not have time to manage the franchise location.

Can i open a hostel even if i don't have a property?

Yes, absolutely. We can help you in identifying the location, the real estate in the particular location as well as work with you in closing the deal.

How much time and capital is needed to open The Hosteller?

We require a minimum of 45 days to redesign the property and turn it into a magnificent backpacker hostel. The approximate capital needed is about INR 40000-50000 per bed. e.g. a 50 bed hostel (provided with good infrastructure and no infrastructural issues) would incur a capital cost of around INR 25 lakhs.

How much is the franchise fee and commissions that The Hosteller charges?

We charge a one time non-refundable franchise fee of INR 5 lakhs. Also, we charge royalties on monthly revenue depending on hostel size, model, location and other factors.

What would The Hosteller help me with during the existence of the franchise?

We help our franchise partners with setting operating standards, booking and sales channels management, boosting sales, driving visibility and increasing return on your investment.
