At the beginning of October, our colleagues from Van Spronsen & Partners hospitality consultancy,  published their sector research ‘De hostel in beeld’ (published only in Dutch). This publication shows that the youth hostel image has been stuck to the hostels for years, it’s now changing partly thanks to the newer, contemporary trendy concepts. Nowadays, hostels also profile themselves partly as hotels, with less large dormitories and more private rooms. This ensures a separation in different types of hostels: the classic youth hostel, budget hostels and boutique, design hostels. A nice example of a hostel where it is not just about the overnight stay is the Wellness Hostel 4000 & Aqua Allalin in Saas Fee, Switzerland. And in 2020 a second Wellness hostel will open in Laax, Wellness hostel 3000 & Aua Grava. lees verder
