The Client:

Four Courts Hostel

The Brief

The Four Courts Hostel is a prestigious establishment overlooking the River Liffey. The Hostel attracts a niche audience of cool bohemian travellers who want a fun, non-formal place to stay.

The website experience that Four Courts were looking for was one that would reflect the values of their target market : cool, modern, funky, unconventional and quirky. The target market would associate with all of these values, but only within a website that was built upon a solid platform that was ultra reliable and user friendly.

The Solution

Matrix set out to create a website which would be mobile friendly and image driven. Our focus was very “mobile-first”, with one column, responsive design throughout.
The website is highly visual, using quality images to encapsulate the rich experiences that their visitors have while in Dublin. Parallax scrolling is used to provide the user with an engaging experience and to attract them to see more of what Four Courts Hostel has to offer.

The interface is fluid and the main CTAs ( calls to action ) are ubiquitous, leading to higher conversion rates.

The final website has been a fantastic success. Four Courts Hostel have a website which they are proud to promote and customers are engaging with it successfully.

what people say

WoofAdvisor Working with the team at Matrix Internet has been a very positive and rewarding experience. As a (one man) non techie startup founder, undertaking a very ambitious and complex website, finding the right web agency was absolutely critical. The team's approach was perfect: a couple of preliminary workshops to make sure everyone fully understood the brief, target market, bullseye customer etc., followed by the creation of a number of very insightful Personas and accompanying Scenarios. This approach continued through to completion, with helpful advice and insightful suggestions at every stage of the project, many of which found their way into the finished design and functionality. While I felt some of these were not have been fully covered by the brief, there was zero slippage on budget. The project was delivered 100% to the agreed budget, which was highly competitive to start with. User testing undertaken by me has been universally positive in terms of Design, Layout, (the many) Features, and most importantly, Ease of Use. I really don't do recommendations lightly, but Matrix Internet have successfully turned my dream into a reality that I am very proud of, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
