This company is being mis-managed, Sacramento a decent bloke fundamentally, but who is pulling the strings, Lipman is bent on expanding the business beyond current assets, they need to focus hard on what they have. There is a demand for low-cost beds in all their destinations, they should be filling them all and more, and the guests should be responsible for making their beds on arrival, this is a low cost model, so make it so. The staff should be responsible for cleaning the rooms for the price of board and lodging, and should be paid accordingly, but given a uniform and meals, and a supplement. Ridiculous share price, I mentioned this back in the spring, so why is it languishing?

Investors chronicle rate it as a buy as do I. You are getting an awful lot of bed spaces for £14.1 million (current m cap).

A bit hard to make sense of the results. That NAV figure is a bit suspect including as it does goodwill. It is clear that the company is on the expansion track and if you treat it as an earnings play (as opposed to a property one) then it will probably come good. Don't however be prepared for instant gratification. Put these in the drawer till 2025.

we have a situation where one of the board owns 27.5% of the company and was buying up to June. As I said on the 15/8 the results (due about 25/9)should be good.

Concern here is Lipman’s obssession with growth, particularly Barcelona, should be focusing on filling their existing beds before embarking on more acquisitions, and raising the average price per bed. Hostelworlds figures did not do this any favours, had hopes of an improvement in margin, but now not so sure!

At a guess the results should be more than good.

Pyrrho increasing their stake has to be good news. They have board representation and must like what they see

Bookbroker. The CEO is a large shareholder in safe land. He has his reputation as a business man at stake here as well. I made the mistake of initially investing here as a property play but it's not one. This is very much a trading business albeit with property Assets

The good news is when they stop calling EBITDA earnings as profit, and start controlling their expenses. I like this sort of unknown entity, it is in a developing market, but expenses need to be ruthlessly controlled otherwise they spiral. This is a property company with a hospitality business in some respects, so they need to stop leasing crummy buildings for now, that need renovating at some expense, and focus on what they have! The CEO should assert that view, as the chairman seems to be the spokesman here, and those two are very small shareholders, so show some faith and buy some stock!

Big change on the share register with no change in price. That's good news

That is the priority, they need to catch their breathe and concentrate on existing assets, the market is not going to disappear, but cost control is the main thing, stay in a hostel and the lights should always be on timers, young people just leave them on, they should sell more snacks and beverages, use the Ryanair model, you get a cheap flight, but you pay for the privilege! Dorms are great for school parties, stags, hens, cheap and cheerful, as long as you fill the beds, otherwise have more double rooms in the budget end, you do not need frills, just the very basics! And charge more for that!

Mgmt still have to prove that they can turn a good profit from the existing hostels.

Ok performance, a lot of extra costs here, the company needs to keep an iron fist on them, and really sweat the existing business before embarking on any more acquisitions, and increase ancillary offerings, particularly food and drink. They have quite enough on their plate right now with all the activity in 2017, wish to see meaningful returns from those hostels acquired, but controlling expenses is the key, at the end of the day you are not creating value unless you turn that land grab in to actual net profit, at the moment this company is in that interim area of trying to match expansion against the underlying rise in costs that are associated with it!

I like the comments from Larry Lipman about leveraging the business, but I would like to see a higher share price to accompany his plans!

I hope they concentrate on the assets they have now, and squeeze the juice from the current properties, Lipman talks about growing the business, organically would be better for the time being, at the current mkt cap. I deem this undervalued, but it looks like it’s closing the gap from the last statement, hopefully the results will show some decent EBITDA on last year, said 2017 strong, so now have full year for those acquisitions!

Time this started the next rise, or fall, but the upside certainly looks the more likely option!

Bookbroker, you come across as a guy that hangs around cheap hotels where your feet stick to the carpet, taking advantage of the free WIFI to post on ADVFN, But as you have extensive knowledge of the backpacker/hostel market, it does not seem you have even achieved that.

I think the price is just back-filling the gap from the last statement, never like to buy when lower but I’ll be buying more for sure, it is the assets that appeal and the cash flow, cash is king!

This stock is worth looking at, backed by strong tangible assets, growing cash flow, hostel market can be seasonable, but it looks to be a growth stock, needs actively managing, but I know the backpacker market, and some of the places are friggin dingy, dirty and ur likely to get tea-leafed. These places look clean and secure, in destination locations, recent trading statement very positive!
