Hostaway's award-winning support has a 95% customer satisfaction rating. Our team is distributed across 8+ countries and timezones so that we're able to help you no matter the time of day. 

Some users say Guesty's support is notoriously slow to respond, and often unhelpful. Plus, with their team primarily located in Israel, anyone outside that timezone will experience delays. When urgent issues can't be dealt with quickly, you risk losing out on reservations, cutting into your bottom line.

Straight-forward pricing

Hostaway offers month-to-month contracts - we work hard every month to earn your business. We have a more affordable flat-fee per listing where all features are included - no hidden fees

Guesty locks you into an annual contract with a complex fixed/% hybrid pricing model (with some features costing extra), and then continue to charge additional "hidden" fees on top, like a cancellation fee. They also have a history of rounding up to the nearest dollar, and increasing their commission percentage to as much as 5%.

Don't just take our word for it - visit any review site to see how happy our customers are.

Make the Switch

Hostaway's features adapt to the growth needs of your business. We grow with you, without the need to migrate and relearn another software. 

Guesty acquired YourPorter in 2021. Despite rebranding to Guesty for Hosts (for 1-3 listings), the platform remains completely independent from Guesty for Pros (for 4+ listings). This means you would need to migrate between the two softwares if you plan to grow. Guesty's time is also divided between these two products, making support, bug fixes and development slower overall.

Hostaway makes continuous improvements to our software, with 15+ released, bug fixes, and updates made each month. We're also the first to market in releasing new, unmatched features, like:

  • Google Travel integration

  • ChatGPT powered guest messaging and listing descriptions

  • Vrbo direct messaging

Guesty seems to be focused on acquiring new software in order to grow their user base and feature set, slowing down their ability to release new features, bug fixes, and other improvements. Lately there's been several complaints on connection issues and double bookings for several Guesty users.
