Hostels & Sustainability

Hostelling International, and its Member Associations, commit to intensifying their efforts to achieve a worldwide network of sustainable organisations and hostels. In doing so, we recognize that true sustainability involves the development of clear and measurable objectives in the following areas:


The social purpose of the HI network, as positioned in the constitution, provides the basis for the continuous development of our social and cultural objectives.


Exceptional efforts to clearly reduce the carbon footprint of HI hostels worldwide and work towards achieving carbon neutrality.


Development which will ensure financially independent hostels with assured quality and standards worldwide.
