We Care

We are the first hostel in San Vito lo Capo, we aim to make a difference for the good of our community, our beautiful Sicily and planet earth!  We are guardians of the natural environment around us and it is our responsibility to respect it.  If you choose to stay with us, you will also be helping to make a difference! 

San Vito lo Capo has a ‘door to door’ separate collection service for refuse, separate collection schemes for the week can be found below. 

 

We invite our guests not to waste with appropriate signs; 

Our vegetable scraps are placed in a compost bin to be reused on site; 

The hostel's interior doors are made from wood from FSC managed forests; 

The external doors are sealed so as to maintain the temperature inside; 

The walls of the hostel are insulated so help keep the temperature constant to reduce the use of air conditioning; 

We heat the water with a system of solar panels; 

Our cleaning products are 98% environmentally friendly; 

Almost all paper used in the hostel is from a recycled source; 

We help local artists to exhibit and sell their products; 

We try to serve local, seasonal produce in our breakfast; 

We are members of Greenpeace; 

We are obviously LGBT-friendly! 

We offer free English lessons to locals; 

We organize cultural evenings for the discovery of Africa and especially Mali, its places, its problems, its people. 

 

REFORESTATION PROJECT 

We love to breathe deeply and feel the air passing through our bodies, making us feel alive and part of this wonderful planet. Hence the need for this project to re-forest areas of San Vito lo Capo which have suffered due to fires in previous years. Part of the proceeds of "GREENBED", a very special bed present in our hostel, will support this project which is still in its experimental stage.  Look out for updates on this website.  Fundraising is one of the first steps to be taken along with a concrete plan to be developed with the forestry authorities and the municipality of San Vito lo Capo. 

We accept donations towards this reforestation project of the areas around San Vito lo Capo, ask at Reception for more details;
