WELCOMMON Hostel was recently created by KOINSEP ANEMOS ANANEOSIS and is a different hostel that promotes sustainable tourism models. It has different rooms that cater to people with different needs and financial possibilities, but also venues for meetings, events and workshops. Its renovation was based on a logic of high functionality and youthful aesthetics, while equipment was reused furniture and objects after being upgraded and acquired vivid colors and youthful style.
