Essentials

Web sites should be very simple and easy to understand. Don't make the visitor have to think. Backpackers are looking for certain things like:

meet people 
photos of smiling, good-looking people that are looking at the camera.
clean 
photos of the rooms and bathrooms. Backpackers want to see what your place looks like.
safe 
photos of your security lockers
good location 
list of nearby attractions
