Travelling is a fun and personal experience. Why shouldn't the whole experience, including planning the trip be exciting?There are numerous channels for booking accommodations OR meeting people, but nothing for travellers who need to book accommodations AND want to meet travel buddies or partners. The Backpacker Crew is creating a hostel booking & social networking app for the budget and youth travel market.
For Travellers: Our goal is to help you find accommodations and book anywhere in the world through a quick easy process. Through that same platform you'll be able to meet new people with similar interests and travel plans. (A cross between tinder & Hostel World).
For Accommodations: Web Reservations International, has a monopoly on the accommodation booking market. The have lost sight of their accommodation partners' needs. WRI has recently raised prices and Hostels are losing patience and becoming frustrated with the booking giants. We are going to disrupt this market.
