Habbo Hotel is a place to meet new and existing friends, play games and simply have fun. It is a richly colorful, multi-dimensional virtual community and social game to which users join by creating a fully customized online character called a Habbo. From there, explore wide variety of spaces and millions of rooms created by other users in the virtual community, play a variety of games, train pets, connect with friends, decorate their own rooms and Habbo homepages, and have fun through creativity and self expression. The Habbo experience consists of many parts, which are all inextricably linked.
Habbo Hotel can be accessed via the local Habbo sites, and through the world’s largest social networking site Facebook, where all 11 of Habbo Hotels language versions are also available. Through Facebook Connect, Habbo users around the world can easily find their Facebook friends in the virtual world and share their in-world experiences.
Entering the Habbo world is free, but to access premium services users need to buy Habbo Credits, which is the virtual world’s currency. Credits are used to pay, for example, virtual furniture and elements for the homepage. Virtual furniture and homepage gadgets in particular are important factors in most Habbos lives within the community, allowing them to express themselves through the creation of theme-styled rooms and homepages and places to chill out.
