Sustainable accommodation

An overnight stay at the Swiss Youth Hostels is on average ten times more environmentally friendly than a night in a five-star hotel. We are constantly reducing our environmental footprint in all areas while ensuring our guests consistently receive impeccable service. 60% of our guests also voluntarily contribute CHF 0.30 per person/overnight stay to climate protection as part of the Cause We Care initiative.

Climafriendy heating with wood

Heating with wood and climate-friendly? Yes it is possible, but how? We asked Hans-Urs Häfeli (Swiss Foundation for Social Tourism SFST) what Swiss Youth Hostels are doing for the climate – and why wood pellets are a climate-friendly heating option.
