Our Review

Habbo is a virtual community game with social networking services which officially started operations in 2000. It is under the company Sulake, a Finland-based corporation.

The site initially aimed to attract the teenage market. However, now, with millions of members all over the world, it has gained a significant number of patrons from all age groups. Of course, considering the nature of Habbo, younger members still dominate the site.

From creating avatars to dressing them up and styling your room with furniture; to sending chat messages to the room or a whisper to a specific avatar, everything is possible with Habbo.
It may not originally be a dating site, but it can function that way in a very efficient way. Lessen the stress of your first meeting with your potential partner since it will happen through your avatars. Impress your avatar date with what you could offer. 

It has an app version which you can download for free in the App Store and Google Play store.

Messaging is free for everyone. It comes in three forms- Chat message to the whole chatroom, Instant message for your friends, and "Whisper."

Since 13 years old and above can already signup for the site, you must be careful when you try to flirt or message another member with the purpose to build a relationship. Make sure that the member whom you are trying to contact is of legal age, by checking their profiles first.

It is not as complicated as it sounds, but how about taking a quick tour on what to expect if you signup for Habbo? Check our in-depth review to know if you can be one of them.

  • Has more than three million members worldwide
  • Members prefer using the desktop version
  • Male members are almost twice the number of female members
  • Some minors use the site due to its virtual game nature
  • Members can refer others by sharing their QR or referral code

Having an extensive database of members sound great. You will have the chance of engaging conversation with more members. However, there are a lot of minor members around, so you have to be cautious about that. To be safe, always treat members with the most respect. This is to avoid being reported, either by a minor, his/her guardian, or even a legal aged player.

Since playing in the desktop is more convenient, most members prefer using this version instead of the app. Either way, you can still access your account, even if you change a device, using the username and password that you used to register.

Male members dominate the site, given the fact that males are more into computer games compared to females. But if you will look at the digits, 500,000 female members is not a small number anymore.

You can share your QR code or referral code to your friends to play and get together on this virtual hotel game.

Signing Up

Habbo Register
  • Registration is free via desktop or mobile
  • Creating an avatar is part of the registration process
  • Sign up using your Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, or Microsoft Account
  • Minors 13 years old and above can register on the site

Sign up for free using any of your devices. It will only take around 3-5 minutes to finish the process.  Just supply your email address (Google, Microsoft, or Yahoo), or connect with your Facebook or Twitter account to start the registration.

Create your avatar and make it look like you, or change the style and fashion of your choice. You can buy other clothes and accessories after signing up, so you can use the default items for the meantime. Your username will be assigned to you which you can change later on provided that the username that you want is not yet taken.

Be at least 13 years old to register to the site. Minors should be monitored by their parents when they are using the site/ app. However, as a person of legal age, other members should be mindful that the members they are going to meet are not all adults.

Making Contact

Habbo Chatroom
  • Sending chat messages is free
  • Everybody in the room can view your chat message
  • Have a private conversation with another member using the whisper feature
  • Some messages may contain inappropriate content
  • Discussion in Habbo rooms may be monitored

There are several ways on how you can communicate in Habbo. 

The first way is by chatting directly in the room where all the avatars there can read your message. Just type directly on the chatbox and press enter to send the message. A pop-up balloon will appear on above your avatar. You can also read the messages of other members on their own pop-up balloons.

Another way is by clicking on another avatar where you can see the following options: add friend, trade, whisper, give respect, ignore, report, and give hand item. Unlike other regular dating sites, you need to give extra effort into doing some work related to your date.  

The last and most private option is to send a message through Habbo Messenger. Just like regular social networking sites, it would let you send messages to your Habbo friends, whether they are online or offline. You will see if the other member has read the message. Multiple chats can be done at a time, but group chats and messages are not yet available.

It is easy and free to contact other members; however, they are not too responsive when it comes to instant messaging. Chatroom conversations are always a hit considering that the primary purpose of entering the room is to get involved in the discussions.

There are members who would post inappropriate messages to you or the chatroom. If you feel uncomfortable about it, don't hesitate to report it to the support team. Reporting is also your way of protecting other members who cannot speak out for themselves about the foul behaviour of another member.

Take note that Habbo staff may monitor conversations in a chatroom. So even if no one reports an inappropriate behaviour, Habbo may still sanction that member who doesn't follow the Habbo Way.

Profile Quality

Habbo Profile
  • Verify your email to protect your profile
  • Manage your profile information and privacy
  • Design your home and dress up your avatar
  • Flaunt your badges to give a good impression to other members
  • Invite other members to be on your relationship board

    The profile information in Habbo is not very detailed for security purposes. Not even a member's real name is shown on the site. 

    To be able to change your privacy preferences, verify your email to prove that you own the account. With this, Habbo can protect your profile from the fake ones, scammers or hackers.

    Buy your furniture, clothing, pets and a lot more virtual items from the catalogue. You can make your avatar experience the life that you wish to experience in real life.

    Badges are one of the first things people see when they visit your profile. The more badges you have, the more you can become attractive to other members.

    You can invite your real-life friends to join you in playing Habbo, then list them down on your relationship board. However, you can also invite your virtual friends to be on your board too.

    App

    Habbo App
    • Only 10% of the members prefer using the app version
    • Has better resolution than the computer version
    • Available for iOS and Android gadgets

    Habbo has an app version for mobile phones for members who are always on-the-go. It may not be as convenient to use as the desktop version, but it's graphics are a little less pixelated. As mentioned, only a small percent of the total population of Habbo uses the app.

    Download the app for free from the App Store or Google Play Store. In-app purchases can be made for credits.

    You will not receive notification from the app when the app is closed on the phone. Since it's a virtual game, all actions and updates are done once you're account is online.

    The app is on a landscape orientation, so you have to tilt your phone when using the app. The colours on the app are as vibrant as they are on desktop. 

    You can purchase items or credits directly using the app on your smartphone. Your network carrier may charge you on your plan, or credit it to your cards.

    Other features for the two versions are the same.

    Real Life Review

    "I love playing virtual games like this, so I thought Habbo would be a great way to find someone with the same interest as I have. It's a little difficult to achieve that, but it's not impossible because I found mine! It took me a few months, however. I just wish the site has better graphics; it looks so old-school!"  - Rocky, 22

    Habbo website's graphic is remarkably pixelated. Which make it looks outdated compared to other HD virtual games. It also needs to run on flash when played on Google Chrome.

    It has a slow loading time in both desktop and app versions, which can be caused by the size of the memory that it uses to operate.

    Younger members will be having an easier time navigating the site since it's more of a virtual game. However, older members need not worry since Hotel Manager Frank gives a walkthrough on how to use the site.
