During the construction of Tetris, a number of well researched practices have been adopted so that we could be considered a sustainable hostel. The practices directly influence the functions of the hostel and can be recognized.
What’s the difference?
There are several differences between a sustainable hostel and one that isn’t. We feel that it’s just as important to respect the environment as we do our guests. Therefore, the adoption of these responsibilities requires commitment to the well-being and sense of community.
What makes us a sustainable hostel
The water used in the hostel goes through solar heaters that are on the ceiling, and reduce the consumption of electricity.
Some of the furniture present in the hostel was built using parts of other materials that would have otherwise been thrown away, such as wooden pallets.
The rain is collected, stored and later used throughout the hostel such as the toilets and plant watering system.
All of roofs are covered with real grass, lined with protective coating to prevent leaks…this has become an effective, natural way of insulating the containers.
Our hostel is lit by efficient LED lights that increase longevity and reduce energy consumption
Special plants with roots that penetrate our waste system filter the sewage the system and provides nourishment for our garden.
Just like you, the containers used to build Tetris have traveled the world!
Recycled Pool Deck
Our pool deck is made out of a plastic/wood blend made from recycled materials. This increases the life of our deck while protecting the forests.
More than 100,000 recycled bottles were used to make thermo-acoustic insulation of the hostel.
