The Hostel COVID-19 Business Support and Continuity Fund is now closed for applications. 

The £2.8 million fund was delivered by VisitScotland, developed with input from Scottish Independent Hostels, Hostelling Scotland and Independent Hostels UK. It was established to provide financial support for the Scottish based hostel sector.  

Following feedback from industry and recognising a funding gap for larger hostels in Scotland, a second strand of the fund was created to support hostels in Scotland with a rateable value above £51,000 who were not eligible for the first strand of funding. The eligibility criteria for both strands of this fund is set out in the guidance notes
