You must try it!

This is the coolest app I've ever seen. I don't write many reviews, but I can't believe how well this app and the associated services work. When this started in Canada, I used it a few times and have been hooked ever since. I hope they continue to spread--I use it whenever I travel and have properties I will connect though KeyCafe in the future.

This is a good service to have. User interface needs a lot of work.

The interface needs A LOT of work. Quite confusing how to actually set up your key and find a location but once you get past all that, the service works. They give you your first two key drop offs free and the call center is 24/7. Make sure the location you drop off your key is going to be open at the time you plan on picking them up. A 24 hour location (like 7-11) is your safest bet if you think delays are possible. Overall satisfied with the service.

Don’t listen to the reviews

I’m actually pretty impressed. A friend asked me to download the app and drop some keys off in the drop box and it was genuinely very easy. I reckon the people that have been leaving low ratings were inpatient and not very tech savvy.
