Hipsters! They seem to be everywhere nowadays. But when they’re not browsing thrift stores for vintage fedoras, riding their fixies or looking for the latest album by “Alt-DL and the Wookies” (you wouldn’t have heard of them), where do they stay?

Well as manager of your own brand new hotel, that’s now up to you! Build your own vision of a perfect hipster hotel – a paradise for these skinny-jeaned settlers - and make your fortunes from your hipster inhabitants!

To make your mark, you will be challenged to make sure your hotel stays as eco-friendly as possible. Upgrade your rooms and train your staff to make sure you stay good and green and challenge yourself to learn more about sustainable development and food, water and energy waste in hotels.
