WHAT IS MANGO TREE ECOHOSTEL?

WE ARE MANGO TREE ECOHOSTEL

MORE THAN JUST A HOSTEL...

100 % SUSTAINABLE AND ECOLOGICAL BUILDING

We are building our hostel from scratch. And that`s not the only thing… The idea of the hostel focuses on marine conservation and ecological building with a focus on environmental awareness and change. That’s why the hostel is built out of ecobricks, recycled materials and sustainable native sources such as bamboo. Also  we want to live completely sustainable – means `zero waste`. This way we want to encourage Backpackers and locals to follow our example to reduce the environmental footprint.

HOME FOR TRAVELERS AND LOCALS

Our mission is to set an example for everybody, creating a place for backpackers and locals where both can benefit from a symbiotic relationship with each other and the environment. We want to show backpackers how beautiful the Philippine culture and nature is. Filipino culture is about living in community, sharing, and team work. A simple life but happy. Compare this with our western lives, where everything goes faster and it is much more individualistic, however it is generally more aware and respectful with the environment. With the help of everyone staying with us we are going to show different ways of waste disposal instead of throwing it into the ocean or burning it.  With Mango Tree Ecohostel we are creating a place where we can amalgamate the best of both cultures for the benefit of all.

LEARN HOW TO DIVE

Our hostel is surrounded by beautiful dive spots and we really want to make it possible for everyone to learn how to dive. We want to make it possible for locals and travellers to learn how to dive.  We want to show that  there is another world below the water and make it easy to understand how important it is to protect and preserve this world. People who are just beginning their diving journeys really begin to cherish the ocean and aquatic life and take action to protect it like picking up trash, watching educational documentaries and telling others about the problems they see. Once you see an amazing healthy underwater world, you fall in love and want to protect it.
