Bryn Powell (Containers Hostels)
Entrepreneur: Bryn Powell
Business: Containers Hostels
Containers Hostels Ltd brings to London the world’s first ever eco hostel made from converted shipping containers. The business is made up of three young entrepreneurs with a passion for converting unused pieces of land into accommodation for domestic and overseas tourists. The team uses their knowledge of the tourist industry to give their guests both a unique take on the capital,and the chance to enjoy some of central London’s best accommodation at a competitive price. Using shipping containers means the business is able to provide an environmentally friendly alternative to expensive London accommodation. The hostel itself has a charity programme in which it works with local and international charities to provide volunteers and donations (in the form of containers) to areas most in need.
