Sustainability at Viajero Hostels

Because How We Travel Matters


At Viajero Hostels, we seek to break the mold of what is expected from a hostel.Here, you'll find a space to rest and where tourists become Travelers and mindful explorers of the world. We shift perspectives and help forge connections between guests, local communities, and diverse cultures,all under a common banner:a greener and more empathetic future with our communities


We call sustainability "Turista? No, Viajero" (Not a Tourist? A Traveler.)


Because we are convinced that to leave a positive impact—economic, social, and environmental—in each of our destinations, we need a hand, well, many hands: yours, our team's, our suppliers', friendly organizations, and, of course, the communities that host us. Only by joining forces can we build a culture of care, repairing what's been affected and preserving what makes each destination unique.

Our essence has a Latin rhythm and vibe. That's why we seek to proudly care for and exalt the cultural richness of our destinations, offering you and other travelers empathetic and bold experiences that inspire a connection with the essence of the space you're visiting.

We are newcomers on this exciting journey toward sustainability, but we are committed to transforming your journey and ours into a conscious and inspiring one.

Are you joining us on this journey?

Our Commitments and Impact on Sustainability


We summarize our commitment to sustainability in 3 main pledges: 

1. Conscious Travelers

Through rewarding experiences and education, we aim for Viajero Hostels' travelers to connect empathetically, responsibly, and consciously with the local community, culture, and entrepreneurs.

2. Sustainable Destinations
We care for, restore, and conserve destinations with sustainable infrastructure, design, and operations to ensure they remain a paradise for today's and tomorrow's travelers.
3. Culture and Diverse Talent
We celebrate diversity and human talent by creating a well-being, training, and development space.​
At Viajero, we travel with purpose! That's why education and conscious decision-making are in our DNA. We commit to maximizing positive impact and reducing our negative footprint on the planet.
Because how we travel does matter!

This is the beginning of a long journey; we focus on three pillars: 

1. Educational experiences that generate a positive social and environmental impact.
2. Empathy and deep connection with the local community.
3. Promotion of entrepreneurship and inclusive local development.
