Training for social, green and employment issues

The WELCOMMON HOSTEL has been refurbished into a modern facility, an innovative hostel with social impact. It is part of the LE MAT Network for the promotion of sustainable tourism: special people, places, values and Hostelling International.

WELCOMMON Hostel, an innovative hostel, a social experiment
Together tourists, visitors, volunteers, staff, refugees meeting, discussing, cooking, painting, language lessons, music, socializing
It is not just a hostel. Our guests are individuales and groups with interests and values.

We are part of the social and green change we want to see happen

Athens is a city in crisis but at the same time one can see a real change if one decides to be part of the social and ecological change. We have decided to be part of this social and green transition.

In the WELCOMMON Hostel we can introduce you to the world of Greece’s social economy and you can learn about its strengths and weaknesses. You can also contribute with your ideas and experience.

The WELCOMMON Hostel highlights the positive impact that cooperatives and social enterprises have on communities, revitalizing neighborhoods, making bridges between communities, social groups, newcomers and local people.

Anemos Ananeosis/Wind of Renewal has a strong commitment to building a better world through social and green innovation and the cooperative business model. We want to influence the direction of our society to become more sustainable and ecologically and socially fair.

Discover the other side of the city

Your stay in the WELCOMMON Hostel is also a chance for you to discover what is going on in the city. You could join initiatives working for the transformation of the city and its environmental protection, you could contact human rights groups or initiatives working with the unemployed, young people or for the inclusion of the refugees. There is an interesting, hidden side of the city, a real live and fresh city within the city; our community is ready to host you and work with you.

You help us boost the social impact of our project

Enjoy a comfortable stay in the real Athens while funding essential social programs for refugees and activities for environmental protection, energy transition and climate protection. WELCOMMON Hostel is also a center for social and green innovation and economy.

The first step is crucial: we want to be financially and socially sustainable, we try to improve our services, to make our hostel more convenient, friendly and live, more artistic and social. We need your support until we are financial sustainable and we can finance our social and green activities based on our resources. Be part of our - Fund raising campaign

But the next step is also very important to us; we are committed to investing any profits in social and environmental improvements, in the transition to an energy-efficient and green economy, in creating a new center for the most vulnerable; we also aim to contribute to reducing the energy poverty of households, offering them know-how and support so that they can exit a difficult situation through social empowerment and energy efficiency.

We are a social cooperative, with financial and economic activity, with social and environmental impact. We don't share profits to our members, we invest in social and environmental development

Social inclusion and job integration

This cause is too close to my heart to not contribute. What this place has done and you guys are doing here is incredibly beautiful.Having spent an ample amount of time in service of refugees in both the Middle East and Europe I've come to understand that unfortunately sometimes people just get dealt a terrible hand, but there's always hope and there's always a way to help. There's so much creativity, intellect, humility and compassion that refugees contain. They've ran like hell to a better life for themselves, and after working with them it's easy to see that they just want growth, and a better life not just for themselves, but for everyone else as well. It's well said that suffering produces growth and compassion, and that's easy to see in the eyes of a refugee. I appreciate everything you're doing here and for the love of humanity I hope your goals are exceeded. Love and Light!
