Guest App

Use your phone as your key,
see what’s on at your hostel & meet other guests.

No guest likes long queues after long flights and filling in registration forms just to check-in. We’ve made check-in as easy as ordering an Uber. Check-in once – not every time you arrive at a new hostel – and simply get a notification when the room is ready. That’s why 69% of guests use their phone as their key on Goki.

  • 1M+ guests have used Goki to check-in
  • x3 more likely to extend their stay using Goki
  • 86% of guests attend at least 1 Hostel activity
  • 69% download rate at our hostels (Vs PIN)
  • Direct message guests or send shootouts to ALL guests
  • Remove plastic, let guests use their phone as their key

Guest Journey

Web check-in

We update your booking confirmation email with a link to check-in online – just like the airlines. The guest can fill in their registration details, verify their ID & pay their balance. Once checked-in, we can issue the guest with a SmartKey for the length of their stay & they will receive a notification once their room is ready.

Tablet check-in

If the guest doesn’t do their web check-in prior to arrival, they can check-in on your tablets once they arrive. This is also a great way to confirm the guests arrival & verify their ID before giving them room access.

Your phone is your key!

Once the guest checks-in via web or tablet, we send them an email with their PIN and instructions for how to use their SmartKey. They can now meet other guests, see what’s on at your Hostel & easily communicate with staff to extend their stay or lave sentiment scores.
