Scriptwriting | Goodmorning Solo Traveller Hostel

About the project

Goodmorning Solo Traveller Hostel is a high-standard hostel located in Restauradores Square in the city of Lisbon. In 2020 it was considered the best hostel in Portugal and the third-best in the world, according to “Hoscars” awards.

This hostel is a special place for me because, throughout my storytelling journey, I got the chance to be their guest as a solo traveller in 2017. Back then, I witnessed their extraordinary service and friendly staff, so I ended up finding my second home in town. One year and a half later, my Católica Lisbon’s students were able to benefit from this same experience, sharing a meal all together at the end of our storytelling workshop.

Briefing
“As you surely know, COVID-19 has impacted the world in strenuous ways and has left our charming hostel void of guests. This, unfortunately, means no income to pay the bills and we were sadly forced to close our doors on March 21st. Together with Adopt a Hostel campaign, we’re trying to save the hostels around the world.”

For that to happen, the Goodmorning Hostel had to create a 3-minute video stating the following:

1) What does the hostel mean to you, why did you open it?
2) Why are hostels important for travel/travellers?
3) Describe your current situation.
4) Complete the sentence: “It’s more than a hostel, it’s…”
5) Say thank you in your language.

Scriptwriting work
In April 2020, Benedita (owner) and Tatiana (general manager) called me to ask: “Tomás, can you help us writing the video script? You’re the storyteller!” “Sure!” And so it was. I had the chance to contribute to the “Adopt a Hostel” campaign, honouring the hostel’s story for the sake of its survival. Watch the video below and make yourself at home!
