Hyderabad startup HostelDunia – helping people find the right hostels

 9 years ago    

With increasing number of people relocating from their parent cities to other cities for several reasons like education, work etc., the need and demand for proper accommodation has been increasing by the day.
A young techie, Raju Ambaragonda decided to start hosteldunia.com when he personally experienced the problem of finding accommodation once he finished his graduation. He had to personally call or visit several hostels personally to get reliable information. When he realized that there are several others the same problem, he came up with this cool online portal that helps people by providing detailed and reliable information about hostel and pg accommodations.

When you are new to a city, you may not be well aware of the different locations and housing facilities there. At such a time, the most simplest and easiest thing to do would be to log on to hosteldunia.com, enter your preferences as prompted by the portal, and get the list of hostels and PGs in the location and at prices as desired by you. The website provides information about everything you want to know before actually visiting the hostel/pg; reviews, ratings, food menu, facilities and pictures!
“The idea of starting hosteldunia.com came to me during my personal struggle to find an ideal accommodation. I realized that there are so many people coming into the city every day for work, studies, and so on. I thought; why not provide detailed information about hostels after personally checking them out, including what these places offer and what they don’t.”, says Raju, the founder of this quickly growing startup.

The team of Hostedunia participated at The Startup heroes contest by TIE Hyderabad and the team won a seed fund of Rs. 10 Lakhs. They started with Hyderabad and currently have hostels from 10 cities listed on the portal; Hyderabad, Bangalore, Coimbatore, Kota, Warangal, Visakhapatnam, Vijaywada, Kakinada, Nagpur and Indore

“We respect user’s time on our site that drives us to provide quality service. We validate the information provided by the hostel owner at the time of online registration. In order to validate the hostel owner’s information, one of our executive personally visits and conducts quality checks on the given info and right away takes pictures + geo location + nearby places (restaurants, malls, ATMs and travel details), etc.
We are also provisioning the users to write their comments/reviews rating on our portal. “said Mr. Raju when asked about the validity of the hostels that register with this web portal.

With so much recognition and the seed funding, Mr. Raju wishes to expand his operations to other major cities as well, and aspires to begin subscription and full time promotional offerings as well.
