OYO what does that stand for? what is the full form of this abbreviation? It stands for “on your own“ rooms. It is a chain of hotels in India which are modified and that means they charge you less than what a normal budget hotel in a two or three-star hotel charges.
At present, there are 14000 rooms under this scheme in 80 cities across the country.
According to Ritesh Agarwal founder of OYO rooms the scheme aims to Standardize on points of hospitality services like free wifi, flat screen TV a beverage tray, free breakfast, branded toiletries 6inch shower heads spotless white linen etc. The standards are audited regularly and required changes made so that quality is not compromised.
With investors like Lightspeed India, Sequoia Capital and Greenoaks Capital OYO are on a fast track growth rate. They plan to offer 50000 rooms in 200 cities by the end of this year. Through research conducted and feedback is taken it has also been observed that in small towns OYO rooms have gained so much popularity that people rent them when there is a power shortage or water crises in their homes. The traffic and demand of these rooms increase when there are cricket matches going on, as people come from nearby places to watch the matches and even the regular crowd prefer staying in OYO hotels instead of going back home after the matches as the houses are at greater distances.

The will to Serve
India is a land of small towns and cities and the people in these places know the value of money they have just started indulging in luxuries which they rightfully deserve but which they had been denying themselves since long. These people are learning to spend but at the same time, they also are wary of being cheated. And when they see the reasonable price and the good services offered they become assured that these people are genuine and are not out for earning money. They offer much more than what people expect. They do not compromise on the quality.
All this speaks well of the facilities provided and the reasonable price charged by these OYO hotels. It also goes to prove that the future of these OYO rooms at reasonable rents is very bright.
This group of young entrepreneurs (founder Ritesh Agarwal is not even thirty) plans big aims high and works hard at making OYO one of the top business houses in the country and they know that to achieve all this they need the goodwill and the good wishes of all around them.
As it is if we quote Ritesh Agarwal the founder of OYO he has said that the average Indian does not have to be satisfied with what the unscrupulous hoteliers offer them.
The shabby bedsheets, the unpainted unrepaired bathrooms the dripping tap haphazard room service, unhealthy food. Complacent hotel staff and exorbitant rates.
OYO stared in 2013 and has since been climbing the steps of success. They have now gone international with Malaysia and Nepal on their list. And if these places can have opted for OYO you can well understand the excellent services provided by the entrepreneur. Malaysia and Nepal are places that are thriving on the tourism industry so they require hotels which can cater to all kinds of budgets together with good service. Service which can lure people to coming back for more and this is where these countries have found OYO reliable. Oyo provides services at the budget price without any compromise.
The various efforts put in by the OYO people are the introduction of new and innovative ideas in the process of being hospitable. They make the guest feel wanted and do not act complacent as most branded hotels do in their special attitude which at times even appears insulting.
OYO has introduced a special category of staff called the “Captains” who interact with guests personally enquiring about their needs and the services provided. They have at the moment 230 captains who have been trained to respond to whatever the needs and demands of the guests. The motto here for these Captains is “there is nothing that OYO captains can’t do“.
If we try to look at the history of OYO and how it came into existence we find that a young entrepreneur from Odisha who was studying for the IIT entrance exam decided that he had other things to do some kind of startup which would help him make a name, money and also make him do something with a philanthropic streak. His aim was not only money making but doing something which could help and bring a smile on the face of the people who work hard to earn money and yet cannot indulge in any kind of luxury mainly because of the exorbitant price that luxuries charge. He had traveled widely as a student what with coming to Kota to prepare for his entrance exam all the way from Odisha and then traveling to Delhi he discovered that people were handed a raw deal if they wanted a budget hotel. This was when he decided upon a startup and OYO.
At the age of nineteen, he was selected for the Thiel Fellowship the only person from India and has since never looked back.
He has a certain streak of honesty and a liking for hard work which have always stood by him.
His aim is to take OYO rooms to the greatest of heights.
His style of sharing the profits and saying thank you to his patrons is by sharing with them the profits in the form of various benefits like discount coupons as mentioned above. Some more of his discounts and coupons are mentioned below which are truly innovative and away from the usual offers.

His OYO services have even got his business spread across international boundaries to neighboring Nepal and Malaysia.
