HI-Boston is committed to all things green.
The greenest building is the one which already exists. HI-Boston lives in the Dill Building (1886-1888) which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A complete renovation of the space has allowed for an adaptive-reuse of the building and the development of an environmentally-minded infrastructure. The building has been registered to receive a LEED certification.
Hostelling by nature is green because guests share accommodations. HI-Boston is helping to support its guests’ environmentally-friendly outlook by developing a green hostel. HI-Boston has many features which promote the “reduce, reuse and recycle” mentality.
HI-Boston wants to share its green story with its guest and the community. A green tour has been developed which highlights various environmentally-friendly aspects of the hostel. Follow the signage with icons spread throughout the building to learn more about green features of the building.
