Origin of the Hostel
“GALO” means “rooster” in Portuguese, which is a lucky charm in Portugal. We felt familiar with the word because a rooster (as Weathercocks) is the symbol of Kobe, also the 2017 oriental zodiac (the year we opened this hostel) was Rooster Year. We named this hostel “GALO HOSTEL” with a wish that our hostel becomes a lucky place for all who visit here from all over the world.
