The A&O hostel chain, founded by Oliver Winter and Michael Kluge in 2000, started with just the dream of running a couple houses in Berlin. To this day, A&O is the biggest private owned hostel chain in Europe owning 25 houses in 16 cities.
And we don't even think about stopping yet!
The unique combination of hotel and hostel under one roof makes A&O an interesting concept. The hotel area offers you a two star standard at reasonable prices, the modern hostel area gives you the possibility to sleep in appealing ambience with international flair.
Another success factor is the young, dynamic and committed team with its creative ideas.
A&O has managed its growth from its own resources with profit flowing back directly into the company in order to finance new properties and modernise existing houses.
Because it is this approach that characterises a solid company - the responsibility for the 'time after'.
