Hostels Kenya: MongoDB Use Case

Check out what happened

About this event

Hostels Kenya is a website that provides students the opportunity to find any hostel of their choice by filtering by distance from school, university name, room type, and even the monthly rent. It also provides the students with directions in case they are new to the area. Once they find a hostel that they like, they have the option to make a booking request, after which the landlord/landlady is automatically notified via SMS by our system. The students can also request to receive a notification when the hostel of their choice is fully occupied. Students have the opportunity to review and rate the hostels available in our system, helping other students make better decisions when looking for hostels. We launched the website on 1st September 2020, and so far, we have registered 26 hostels around our university and we are expanding to cover other universities.
