Design System

Mobile App


Hostelworld have seen massive decrease in sales because of the pandemic event so they took this chance to make a complete redesign to all of their existing solutions: web app, admin app, mobile app (iOS, Android) and setup a design system to unite everything. They were in the middle of building a design system so they reached out to us to eliminate ambiguities in the components library, naming convention and complete the design rules to be able to scale and fit all of their solutions.


What we did was to consolidate their main design system (Wanderlust) and define the new mobile user experience for the main screens: from logging in to completing a hostel booking.

We've approached this project by establishing first the user journey of the user, creating wireframes, the interactive prototype for the main screens and then applying the design system rules for all existing screens and new ones.

It was such a delight having this much freedom and eagerness to create a high quality, competitive app supported by the internal team and the external stakeholders.

Hostelworld is one of our favourite projects and our biggest so far in terms of active users.
