The hostel strives towards social inclusion in the workforce, and at the time of writing 90% of INOUT Hostel employees have some sort of disability. Workers are offered indefinite contracts and at least 51% of hostel ownership is in the hands of workers.

In addition to being fully LED, the hostel’s lighting is triggered by motion sensors to ensure minimal energy consumption – an important feature as lighting makes up approx. 15% of the world’s electricity consumption and 5% of green house emissions.
