FRB Rentals wouldn't be what it is today without Hostfully. The PMP that keeps on giving!

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: The Hostfully platform and especially the team have been a pleasure to work with.
They are VERY responsive to anything the FRB Rentals team throws at them, be it a question, suggestion for improvement or a bug.

Pros:

Love the one place to rule them all approach. The ability to create all our FRB Rentals listings in once place, manage pricing and bookings and push it out to direct bookings as well as the OTAs (Airbnb, VRBO, etc.) is so central to a successful Short Term Rentals business. Hostfully, like any software app, isn't perfect, BUT their support and development teams take feedback and fix issues and implement new features requested by the user base. I personally have had many new features I've suggested implemented.

Cons:

At FRB Rentals, we use automated templates to the extreme. Initially there is a learning curve to setting up the more advance automation using templates and trigger. Highly suggest you write it all down and map out how you want timing to happen on a booking through review, then implement it and test one step at a time. The formatting on communications should be tested with each OTA to ensure it looks good to the guest receiving it.

Alternatives Considered: Hostaway and Guesty For Hosts

Reasons for Switching to Hostfully Property Management Platform: For the investment of time and money, paired with the proven feature sets and references I talked to, Hostfully came out on top for what FRB Rentals needed in a platform.

It’s a good system

3.0 last month New

Comments: 3 star out of 5. Good customer service but need someone to pick up the phone to get stuff done right away if needed

Pros:

I liked that you help me to onboard and team is very friendly

Cons:

App is horrible. Needs improvement. The price seems to be very high right now. It is not good that I can’t call [sensitive content hidden] when I need him. I can just schedule a meeting and as I am solo and do it all sometimes u can’t get to the c comp to do the appointment. I need to be able to call someone. This is very difficult for me. Thinking of doing a change

Great platform with outstanding customer support

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: A great experience over the nearly 4 years that we've worked together with all Hostfully team members being helpful and kind.

Pros:

The customer support team are amazing, responsive and always friendly. The platform itself has a great selection of integrations and it is constantly expanding. The Hostfully dev team is constantly adding and updating things and everyone always seems open to new ideas and ways of improving.

Cons:

There are a few features that would be nice to have for the Portuguese market like certified invoicing and guest check-in, however these are usually handled by integrations. A more robust owner's portal would be a great plus too.

Hostfully is getting better

4.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

Channel management and communications integration across all channels.

Cons:

Some of the cumbersome channel integrations and updates are not clearly communicated specifically when Hometogo went away!

Alternatives Considered: Guesty For Hosts

Reasons for Switching to Hostfully Property Management Platform: Interface seemed more clear and overall marketing material made me interested. YouTube reviewers had positive remarks and seem to fit my needs.
