We own over 10 keycafes and we have had an amazing partnership working with keycafe. We would not be able to operate the way we do without the support of keycafe and the ease of use they have created.
I began using Keycafe to exchange my keys for home sharing when I was out of town. It starting off working well, until they mixed up my keys and I was unable to find them in any of the return box slots. I received notification by email that the keys had been dropped off as usual. But the door popped open, and no keys were inside. I contacted my guest and they assured me that they had dropped them off. I then contacted keycafe support to see if they could open any vacant box’s to see if mine were there. They assured me they would open every box that was “vacant”. Three of the 7 supposedly vacant box’s that were remotely opened had keys in them belonging to other customers. They are lucky I am not a thief, and I closed those box’s agin. It was proof that they do mix up the keys. (They sometimes perform maintenance and change the key from the original slot they were dropped in). I asked to be compensated for my lost keys, which they refused saying it must be my fault. They had no interest in retaining my business, guess its not worth it to them. I cancelled my membership, and will never use again. Your keys are safer under the welcome mat! To Keycafe support, don’t even bother responding to this review to try and save face, you had your chance. Any response to this review is simply public relations, with no interest in actually helping your customers. Kyle
