A problem many educational institutions are encountering in Nigeria is the lack of enough hostels for students.
Therefore, students have no choice than to squat or rent hostels off campus. For these students, getting a hostel that suits or corresponds with their lifestyle is a major challenge they face.
In a bid to lessen or reduce the stress of searching for hostels, HostelConnect has launched to simply help find you affordable hostels.
HostelConnect founded by Jimoh Ibraheem in September 2016, creates a convenient and effective way for students to find and view their choice hostel before meeting face to face with agents/landlords for payment. The service according to Ibraheem is accessible 24 hours a day to anyone with internet access across all platforms such as a computer, tablet, and mobile devices.
Interesting, these hostels are not very far away from campus. So, students who are looking for hostel only need to visit the website, search for the hostels that are close to their campuses and they can contact the agent in-charge of the house when they find their preferred choice. It is seamless.
