About BananaDesk

Launching a hostel is hard. Keeping it alive is even harder. Our mission is to help hostel owners, like you, establish and build successful hostels.

BananaDesk is a product we built (and continue to build) with the goal of helping you establish and grow a successful hostel. We aren't a software provider - think of us instead as your partner in crime :)
