Making a booking is quick, simple, and easy. It is very similar to booking a hotel room on any other travel site.
First, tell Roost your trip destination and dates. Then, like Hotwire, choose your desired hotel class (2, 3, or 4-star) and the neighborhood(s) you want to stay in. Enter your payment information to reserve your room. You'll find out the name of your hotel once you match with a roommate and 50% of your booking total will automatically be refunded to your card.
You can cancel your booking for free at any time up to 3 days before your check-in date or before you match with a roommate. Once you complete your booking you can view profiles of all potential roommates going to your destination on your dates. View photos, read reviews, and learn about what they’re like. Filter roommate profiles by sex, age, rating, and other personal preferences.
Indicate who you’re comfortable sharing a room with by tagging those profiles. You’ll only match with a roommate if you mutually tag each other. If you don't match with a roommate by 3 days before your check-in date, you'll stay in your own private hotel room. If this is the case, you will not receive the 50% Roommate Match refund.
