Hostel vibes depends on everything from the layout of a hostel to the interaction of staff with guests. In co-operation with the hostel the social volunteer as a traveler provides opportunities for increased interaction of other travelers within the hostel, in such ways as using common space to promote and participate in guest interaction, facilitating activities open to all guests and social events within and outside the hostel encouraging interaction. The activities will be designed with the explicit focus of promoting intercultural understanding. By social volunteering it is possible to promote the mission and connect social volunteers and travelers/guests with one another and the local community. Both guests and volunteers will gain a means to reflect on the different communities and develop a greater appreciation for diverse people, cultures and societies.
