The key motivations in the origins of JAM Hostel Barcelona come from a love of traveling, a will to show the city from another perspective and the need to promote a responsible lifestyle.
Green and social, as many say, doesn’t necessarily mean dull or boring. JAM Hostel Barcelona more than proves that by applying professional levels of responsibility and sustainability, it is possible to have an innovative and charming hostel.
Why promote sustainable urban tourism?
Sustainable tourism should not just take place in natural areas, which is the norm. Cities also need to be taken care of and protected, and the urban areas, where the majority of the population concentrates, should promote full sustainability in the services they offer to the citizens.
However, this is unusual in Barcelona. Although some new accommodations have certain elements of environmental management, most only focus on the technological aspects of things. That means that they don’t promote complete sustainability through their general operations.
The responsibilities of an urban hostel go beyond the ecological; they must also respond to social concerns.
