    • “We
      carefully looked at all the problems and pain areas being experienced by budget
      hotel owners with respect to the online brand partners, as well as travellers
      on the other hand. Hence… we constructed GoStays to solve these pain points
      with the aim to create a healthy marketplace of budget accommodations,” ibibo
      Group Founder and CEO Ashish Kashyap said.
