WELCOMMON Hostel Philosophy

We are part of the LE MAT Network: special place, people, values

The WELCOMMON HOSTEL is a seven-floor facility building in the center of Athens that offers accommodation  for people of all ages and places, a hostel for sustainable tourism, a proposal for accommodation of social, cultural and environmental active persons during their stay in Athens. Located in the heart of Athens, Welcommon Hostel is a 4-minute walk from National Archaeological Museum of Athens, 4-minute walk from Omonia Square and 600 m away from National Theatre of Greece.

The WELCOMMON Hostel is something more than just a nice hostel with social impact. It is also a place for social gathering and experiment, a center for innovation and art, as well as a centre for social and job integration for Greek locals, migrants and refugees.

The WELCOMMON Hostel is run by the social cooperative ANEMOS ANANEOSIS / WIND OF RENEWAL.

WELCOMMON Hostel means welcome in common – together. It is not only an opportunity to stay in a good place in Athens, the Greek capital; it is also a way to:

– enjoy your stay in the city,

– discover its social, cultural and environmental side,

– exchange experiences and ideas

Our philosophy is that we want to be part of the social change we want to see happen. Anemos Ananeosis/Wind of Renewal has a strong commitment to building a better world through social and green innovation and the cooperative business model. We want to influence the direction of our society to become more sustainable and ecologically and socially fair.

Our vision is to bring close people from all over the world, to enable them to communicate, to be entertained and to explore the creative side of Athens. In the WELCOMMON Hostel we can introduce you to the world of Greece’s cultural, environmental and social organizations as well as of social economy. You can also contribute with your ideas and experience. It highlights the positive impact that cooperatives and social enterprises have on communities, revitalizing neighborhoods, making bridges between communities, social groups, newcomers and local people.

Our mission is to daily improve and develop our services, make our hostel more than convenient, friendly and live, artistic and social innovative. We can organise your study trip in the city and provide details about interesting social events and groups. We can also supply you with all necessary information on other Greek cities, islands or a mountainside, connect you with cycling groups, or let you know the secrets of culinary delights.
