Our corporate purpose and values
SLO’s corporate purpose is to bring the hostel concept to a wider audience and to play a central role in transforming the current tourist industry landscape, creating tourism with a more local, person-centred and sustainable approach.
In line with this, SLO wants its venues to be inspirational, creative and open; places where tourism and culture come together, aimed at giving travellers and locals an unforgettable experience.
Since the opening of the first Slo in 2014, this business venture has grown substantially, as has the team, as more hostels have opened.
Many talented individuals have developed their gifts in-house or joined the firm to manage operations, welcome hundreds of travellers every day and take part in growing the company.
