Oliver Winter

Founder & CEO A&O Hostels

Oliver Winter is one of the "fathers of the German hostel idea" and is the founder of a&o hostels.

His vision of affordable accommodation in a city center with a sociable hostel feeling component has come true.

He has established his budget-chain concept with huge success across Germany.

With the entry of TPG Real Estate, a&o paves the way for a Europe-wide market leadership in the individual and youth travel segment.

At the same time, Oliver continues to look after the representation and strength of his brand and the well-being of the employees who lead a&o to success.
