The higher prices charged on students by brokers and some hostels owners, the tiresome and timewasting process of looking for hostels in addition to the difficulties hostel owners find when it comes to handling students’ information, and employee details necessitated the development of the Web-based Hostel Identification and Booking System. The Web-based Hostel Identification and Booking System helps students to identify and locate hostels based on their own preferences and also help hostel owners to manage students and employee information thereby acting as one of the possible ways how the above problems would best be solved. The project was an important endeavor since its aim was to develop a Web-based Hostel Identification and Booking System to help students and hostel owners overcome the above problems. The project involved the process of gathering data through interaction with the students and hostel owners and the review of literature of the related systems. Information for the system was gathered using tools such as interviews, and questionnaires. We used Entity Relationship and Context diagrams to analyze and design the system. The technologies used in implementation of the objectives of this study included MYSQL server database, PHP for server connections, and HTML for user interfaces. The result of the project was the Web-based Hostel Identification and Booking System capable of allowing students to view, select and book hostel and also allow hostel owners to register students and also manage their records. The application was finally run on the computer and was verified to be running sufficiently well and produced the expected results. Basing on the results produced by the Web-based Hostel Identification and Booking System, we are very sure that once the system is adopted and put into practice, the problems that students and hostel owners are currently facing will eventually be diminished.
