We are combining sustainable tourism with empowerment and social inclusion of vulnerable persons, green and social innovation, and intercultural dialogue. We welcome all the different travelers (tourists, volunteers, erasmus, refugees, migrants, nomads, students) and create communities of respect and acceptance. We provide safe accommodation, socializing, intercultural environment, social inclusion, environmental and climate awareness. We try to turn the hostel into a zero emission and zero waste demonstration hostel.
