Everything you need to know about booking a space for your project or event

Before getting started, you should create an account or login to your existing account if you haven't already done so.

 

Searching for Spaces

Spacefy offers a vast range of different spaces to accommodate all projects and events. To find one that suits your needs, start on the Spacefy homepage

  • Your location is automatically detected. If you’re searching in a different location, change it beneath the main search bar.
  • Enter one or more keywords that corresponds to what you are looking for. For example, you can search for photography studio, house, exposed brick walls, green screen, yoga studio, etc. You can also leave the space blank to see all listings.
  • On the next page, you will see all the listings that correspond to your search criteria. As needed, use the filters to narrow things down. You can also sort by distance, price or recommended spaces.
  • Click through to the listing page to view the photos, description, amenities, and the terms of the booking as specified by the host. You will also see a list of booking options and add-ons that are available for the space. 

Note: All prices are the hosts’ asking price, which often may be negotiable. Be sure to provide as many details as possible when requesting the booking, so the host can offer a personalized quote. 

 

Booking a space

Here you have two options:

  1. If you are not yet ready to book but are interested in asking the host questions about their space, click Ask host a question on the ticket, or use the Contact me button in the Your Host section. 
  • Type your question into the pop up window and click Send. 
  • You will be notified by email when the host responds to your message. To view your messages head to your inbox (log in, click your name in the top menu bar, and select inbox). 
  • If you are ready to book, click the Select button on the appropriate booking option as well as on any add-ons (if applicable), select the date and time that you require the space, and click Request Booking.

Note: You can edit the number of hours/days of your booking by changing the quantity of the booking option.

  • You will be taken to the Booking Request page. Fill in all the information as accurately as possible. Be sure to provide detailed information about your event and to include any questions that you have about the booking. 
  • Accept the terms and conditions and click Continue to send your request.
  • Spacefy will inform the host of your request. They will respond to you with booking offer or send you a message if they have any further questions.
  • You will be notified by email when the host responds to your request. 
  • You can review your bookings and their status in the Bookings section of your dashboard.

Once you receive an offer from the host, all that's left to confirm the booking is to issue your payment. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Head to your Bookings tab.
  • When you have received an offer for a booking, the status will appear as Offered.
  • Click into the booking you would like to accept to review the offer. If the host has sent a message with their offer, you will see a notification on the View messages button.
  • Be sure to review the messages from the host and the details of the booking offer in detail, ensuring that the date and time of your event is correct.
  • The total booking amount is equal to the full amount you will pay, including all fees. 
  • You can either Decline or Accept the offer. 
  • To Accept the offer, you can include a message for your host, click to accept the terms and conditions, and click Accept Offer
  • Click Pay Now, enter your payment details and click Pay to confirm your booking. 
  • You will be redirected back to the booking page. You will now see the email and phone number of your host, and the status of the booking will show as Paid.

Congratulations! You have confirmed the booking. Best of luck with your project
