Until the 1st of June our Welcommon Hostel, a seven-floor facility building with rooms and dorms in the center of Athens with a social and green impact, remained closed #COVID19. We were forced to make the heartbreaking decision of closing our doors until the 31st of May. The safety of our clients is a priority. But our WELCOMMON HOSTEL is open again. As it is a hostel for sustainable tourism and a centre for social, cultural, climate and environmental activities, and if you are planning to travel to Athens in the next years, visit our site www.welcommonhostel.gr, book from now your private room with balcony and support us.

You can save our hostel from the devastating financial effects of the COVID-19 crisis and support our social, cultural and environmental activities.

We hope we will be able to welcome you soon in safe mode. Until then we are hosting 70 homeless vulnerable refugees living in the streets during COVID-19!
