Working together to make a difference

Clink Community

Clink’s sustainability journey grows faster (and greener!) every year. We know our responsibilities go beyond the walls of our hostels, and we’re dedicated to moving the needle towards sustainable practice in the hospitality industry.  

We strive to use our business as a force for good by reducing inequalities, creating high-quality jobs, and developing a healthier environment for all by regularly reviewing our diversity, inclusion, and sustainability.

people, diversity and inclusion

We collaborate with Only A Pavement Away who connects companies with people experiencing homelessness, prison leavers and veterans, in order to help place them into stable employment.
