Hostel Sustainability Goals ​

Sustainability Commitment

 We target to run and develop our business with social commitment, promoting the well-being of society and the environment while lessening negative impacts with our activity. 

We know that the hostel running water used in showers and taps is  sourced from local rivers Douro and Paiva at ETA of Lever (20 Km East of Porto). Porto tap water is of very good quality, tastes fine and is drinkable. 

Our electricity is produced from renewable sources based on wind turbines, solar panels and on water gravity through our local River Douro dams. We have eight dams in Douro Valley on the Portuguese side.

Happy Porto Hostel own commitment is a small step, but we believe that we need to take part in saving the planet in a daily basis. We invite you as our guest to support this idea and contribute to these goals. 

We will be proud of your support in our cause!
