I'm intrigued by your motives for starting a hostel, that profit is not the primary motivation. I started a real estate investing company about 2 yrs ago with the same motives in mind, enjoy what I do and not worry about profit as much. With that type of mindset it allowed us to select units that in turn are more profitable in the long run. When I seek out business partners I'm primarily interested in there personalities more over what they offer. I have found that surrounding yourself by positive individuals allows you a far greater chance of success!
With that said I'd like to discus your plans with you in further detail. In short I have a very rounded skill set (bachelors in Comp Sci, Bachelors in Information Tech. and a minor in Business admin) I also managed to start and now run a success full real estate investment firm. The skills I've learned in these areas as well as my life lessons I feel would be of great value to you in your future endeavor.
Best of luck to you in the future!
