Get the project done well
We’ve seen every type and size of hostel throughout the UK for the past 30 years, having inspected over 100 hostels in Scotland and worked or visited over 50 more in the UK, Europe and America.
We wrote the accommodation standards for the independent hostel sector in Scotland, ranging from cosy 8-bed hostels in remote areas to lively 130-bed hostels in cities, so we know what makes a hostel successful.

Building a reputation
When a guest stays at your hostel, it will be memorable because it’s unlike anywhere else and they will come back again and again. Then they’ll tell others.
You will also notice an increase in local community pride because your hostel is giving the community something distinctive and worthy, an attraction.
Working with you and your community
We will support and encourage you and your organisation or community’s vision rather than imposing one on you. We will involve your community in the goals, operation and success of the hostel so they see how the hostel can benefit them as well as feel part of the process.
Our goal is for you to develop the skills and confidence so that your community easily and successfully manages and develops its own hostel.
