Right in the middle of Soho, SoHostel is on the doorstep of some of London’s best restaurants, bars, nightclubs, cinemas and music venues. With Oxford Street and Covent Garden only minutes walk away. The hostel is owned and managed by One Housing, a large not-for-profit organisation that houses and cares for thousands of people across London and the South East.
Opened in November 2104 following a major refurbishment, it offers stylish and secure accommodation for single travellers, couples and groups. And when you stay at SoHostel you’re also helping homeless people have a safe and secure night’s sleep, because SoHostel’s profits are used to help and support residents at Arlington, the famous hostel for homeless people in Camden.
Webheads was delighted to be part of this new and exciting project. We could see immediately how showcasing this bright new location for travellers would have instant web appeal.
Not only did we develop a fresh and attractive website, we also put in place a rapid availability and booking system. All in record time. And using our social media expertise we SoHostel on the map for those seeking a brighter and more comfortable London experience.
Webheads went the extra mile on this project and didn’t just carry out the usual SEO and online PR assistance to promote the launch of the website. We secured media coverage on MailOnline (193million monthly unique users) and fastest growing UK newspaper website, The Metro.
This is money-can’t-buy promotion and both articles contained direct links to the site. Bookings are soaring and the hotel is fully booked for New Year’s Eve, just four days after opening.
