YHA Australia has launched a new Facebook booking application that allows travellers to book a bed without needing to leave the social media website.
The app, which is registered in the Facebook App Directory, meaning that hostels and partners can add it to their own Facebook pages, allows guest to book a stay in over 100 different YHA hostels across Australia.
YHA Australia CEO Rolf Duelks said: “Facebook is now a part of our guests’ daily lives, especially when they are travelling. The rules that apply to the YHA website apply equally to YHA’s Facebook pages – it must be easy and fast to book available beds.
“This application makes it as simple as possible for our customers to complete that task from within Facebook”.
