We are travel conscious

Our Mission

We love travelling. To us, travel isn’t just about going places, it’s also about meeting people, discovering cultures, eating new food and most of all, learning how people do things differently than we do back home.

We believe that through hostelling, we become more conscious about the world around us; and we can even make the world a better place. Our mission is to build a community of conscious travellers who share a greater understanding of people, places and cultures through our network of hostels and people, and curated experiences that foster collective growth and development.

Why CO?

CO stands for community. It’s every conversation we’ve ever shared, every couch we've been invited to sit on. It’s how we connect, how we coexist. It's everything we have in common and everything we don't. It's who we are.

Our Values

To us, being travel conscious means travelling with open-mindedness, togetherness and mindfulness at the forefront. We want to help shape a global movement of conscious travellers who strive to create a more peaceful, accepting world.


We welcome people and ideas from all places.

We believe everyone should be free to express their point of view.

We encourage the sharing of knowledge, experience and beliefs.


We believe experiences are better lived when shared with others in friendship and understanding.

We believe in collaboration and the power of the collective: all for one and one for all.


We’re on a mission to leave the world better than found.

We raise consciousness about a better way of travelling, to being thankful and respectful of the people and the places that make each moment unique and memorable.

"We strive to bring together peoples of the world, so that sharing a meal, or wandering along a trail, they may learn to appreciate each other's viewpoint and outlook, and realize that we are a world brotherhood. Our task is to promote world peace, not by treaty or statesmanship, but by creating in the hearts of the people of all lands a deep mutual understanding."

- Jack Catchpool, former Hostelling International president

Naxolone voluntary training for HI Whistler staff

Several HI Whistler staff members stepped up for guest and community safety by volunteering for naloxone training in February 2024. Naloxone is a life-saving medication that can reverse opioid overdoses. While this can be a challenging topic, HI Whistler recognizes the importance of destigmatizing addiction and equipping our frontline staff with potentially life-saving skills. This initiative demonstrates HI Whistler's commitment to guest and staff well-being as well as creating a safer community for all.
