Software Advice

Unlike Smoobu, Hospitable.com has the task management functionality and allows sending team reminders with the option of creating custom messages for every team member. It also has more advanced review management features, including following up with a guest to get a review and publishing bad reviews at the last moment.

On the other hand, Smoobu offers a direct booking website builder (this feature is coming soon on Hospitable.com). But Hospitable.com is less expensive – the costs start at $25 per two listings compared to $28 per two listings on Smoobu.
