Using XML Newsfeeds

If you have never used an RSS or ATOM feed, get one of the feedreader programs above and copy the following URLs into it:

  • http://feeds.hostelmanagement.com/hostelnews

Your feedreader will then be subscribed to HostelManagement.com's main XML newsfeeds and you will be notified every time new content is added to this site.
