Overview

Hospitable is a relatively new PMS that has developed a reputation for being easy to set up and use. Its automated messaging features are a particular strength.

Price

25% Discount for your first 3 months of Hospitable

Tiered pricing is based on category and the number of active properties. *Only pay for additional property with check-ins in the past 30 days.

Host

  • $29/month for 1 property, plus $10 for an additional active property
  • Maximum of 2 properties

Professional

  • $59/month for 2 properties, plus $15 per additional active property

Mogul (coming soon)

  • $99/month for 3 properties, plus $30 per additional active property

 

Hospitable Direct – Add-on Direct booking website service. 2 plans are available (see Features section below). A monthly per-property fee and a percentage transaction fee for each direct booking reservation.

 

  • Recommended For The Following

    Individual Self-Managing Property Owners – Yes. Hospitable can be used as a stand alone PMS in connection with a few key integrations.

    Property Managers and Co-hosts –  It depends. Co-hosts and those who only manage a handful of properties could make Hospitable work by choosing the right companies to supplement their tech stack. This may be a good option for those who want an easy to set up and easy to use PMS.

    Compared to other enterprise-level property management software though, Hospitable is missing features such as owner statements, robust reporting, and automated rental agreements that would make it a good fit for larger property managers and co-hosts. Features such as the ability to easily connect other owners’ Airbnb accounts to a Hospitable account, and the ability to create email aliases make it apparent Hospitable is seeking to strengthen their hand in this arena and it is worth watching to see what new features they roll out.

There are many hosts who use Hospitable strictly for their messaging feature and manage other aspects of their business through another PMS they run parallel to Hospitable.
    • The Bad Guest Review Feature: This feature lets hosts write a bad review for poor guests that is automatically posted 20 seconds before the review window expires. As a result, hosts can write an honest review without worrying about a retaliatory review from the guest.

    The PROtrack product auto-assigns guest support agents to message threads and monitors their productivity in real-time. It comes in handy to STR businesses of any scale — from solo entrepreneurs to enterprise companies. PROtrack is a paid add-on that can be added to any iGMS plan.

  • Pros
    • The multi-calendar brings not only reservation information but also cleaning team information into one calendar for simultaneous viewing and easy tracking.
    • The iGMS dashboard provides business metrics such as ADR (average nightly rate), occupancy, revenue per listing, inquiry to booking conversion rate, and more at a glance. It's nice to see this information without having to run reports.
    • The PROtrack product is especially helpful for property managers and co-hosts who have a team of personnel that handles guest communications.  It allows communications to be routed to specific staff automatically and also has the ability to track the productivity and performance of your communication agents.
