What we do

What do we do at Movijovem? The answer is only one: we mobilise generations. Around what they like, what they need, what makes sense at each given moment and for each person. 

At Youth Hostels, we are a mandatory stop for nature lovers, backpackers without a destination or pilgrims on their journey. We are the choice of young adventurers, families discovering our country and all those who seek comfort at a fair price. 

From experienced tourists to occasional travellers, from students to professors, from professionals from different areas to sports associations and charities, everyone finds their own place at Youth Hostels. 

It doesn't matter who you are, where you come from, how old you are or what beliefs you carry in your luggage. With us, you’re home. 


Discover our itineraries, associative programmes, solidarity tourism, or our ambassadors programme. Get ready to live #momentosépicos.


Youth Hostels are part of a global village of accommodations designed to provide authentic experiences based on learning, solidarity and sustainability. Each of our 42 Youth Hostels is a meeting place, where experiences can be exchanged between people from different geographies, nationalities, ages or ideologies. It received, in 2020, the Safe Youth Hostel stamp, awarded by the Directorate-General for Health.

We, Pousadas de Juventude, are proudly part of the world's largest network of hostels, Hostelling International, an example of sustainable tourism since its inception in 1932.  

This fact allows us to state that we have been, for as long as we can remember, seriously committed to sustainability. Environmental preservation, responsible development, the conscious use of resources or the sustainability of the communities where we are inserted are part of our daily life.  

Ongoing, we have a Sustainable Tourism for Development Plan based on a set of good practices of quality and sustainability. Its objective is to promote mobility and youth tourism in Portugal, qualifying and valuing the tourist offer in each destination. How?, you may ask. Through tourist itineraries and unique experiences, initiatives of engagement and appreciation of local roots, and empowering residents and local tourist agents in welcoming tourists.  

But there’s more! As the result of a unique collective effort, all our 42 Youth Hostels are certified by Hostelling International's Quality and Sustainability Management System (HI-Q&S), recognised by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). 

We’re aware of how urgent it is to protect the present and defend the future. Join us. 
By choosing Youth Hostels, you benefit from a stay based on the principles of sustainability, while reducing your ecological footprint.
