Green Eco Hostels

Some of our hostels have fully embraced the ethos of environmentally-friendly travel. Many of these eco hostels have been built using sustainable materials, and others look after the environment through green practices such as composting, water conservation, installing energy-saving devices or serving organic produce in their meals. Some of our green hostels have even achieved internationally-recognized awards for their care for the environment and others are located in popular ecotourism locations and focus on sustainability by sourcing locally, providing low carbon-footprint activities such as horse riding, or offering access to nature reserves and contributing positively to the local community. Here is a small selection of the eco hostels & green hostels around the world in the HI network.
