HI-Q, the HI Quality Management System

HI-Q, the HI Quality Management System complements the well-established HI Assured Standards, and focuses on hostel management and operations. It takes ‘best practice’ from quality systems around the world and tailors them to the specific needs of hostels. HI-Q enables hostels to consistently improve and deliver high standards to ensure you have a great hostel experience. HI-Q is a long-term programme that is now being implemented in HI hostels around the world. Only those hostels which successfully complete the programme are certified and able to display the distinctive HI-Q logo.
