Habbo is a virtual Hotel where teenagers socialise with each other using personalised avatars. The virtual Hotel features ‘public’ rooms created by Habbo where all players can chat and private ‘guest’ rooms created by players. Teenagers are able to furnish their Habbo guest rooms with items of virtual furniture and may choose to adopt and look after a virtual pet. Habbo also features a number of mini-games within the Hotel setting. The Hotel is a vibrant community which regularly hosts events ranging from celebrity visits to creative games and online safety initiatives.
