Colombia & Boiler Room campaign for Hostelworld

Role: Content lead

To showcase Colombia as the next big backpacker destination, Hostelworld collaborated with Boiler Room to host a live-streamed club event in a Medellin hostel.

The event was supported by a comprehensive hub of travel advice, video documentary and influencer activity to celebrate local culture.

I led on the content strategy, video creation, microsite build, editorial production and copywriting for the campaign.


The campaign resulted in a 6% increase in bookings to Colombia year on year and a 46% increase in visits to the Hostelworld Colombia destination page.

It takes a village

I was one of many working on this campaign including the extraordinary Partnerships, Social and Content, Product and Design teams at Hostelworld and many talented content creators.
