We think that the best solution to understand how HostelSystem operates and to adjust it to your individual s is to watch our tutorials on vimeo, which you can find here: http://vimeo.com/user7537050/videos/page:1/sort:date

They depict almost every aspect of our software. Thanks to them you can see how to perform operations in HostelSystem step by step, you can easily track the movements of the cursor,you see the written commentaries and what is the most important you can stop it and rewind it any time.

We have grouped some of them for you to make your start with them a little bit easier.

1. Currency

Your currency setting are very important for you because they seriously influence how much money you receive from your customers, so this is the thing you will probably want to check first. You should already have your currency adjusted properly in the HostelSystem profile you got from us, however it is necessary that you should check it. You can also create other accounts that will operate in other currencies that you often get from clients
