Our Story

Sturmfrei serves as a platform that fosters human connection and personal growth through the experience of travel.

Souls of the Jungle

Souls of the Jungle

In September 2018, alumni of IIM-I founded the travel hostel brand “Jungle by sturmfrei“ with the aim of revolutionizing the travel lifestyle of Gen Z and Millennials. They envision a new era of experiential culture that allows young people to explore life through travel. For this new generation, travel is a lifestyle choice that offers the richness of experiences and connections with people.

To cater to the experiential travel needs of young people, “Jungle by sturmfrei” provides aspirational, stylish, and affordable stays in prime tourist locations, while also serving as a platform for artists, musicians, and entrepreneurs to meet and collaborate, forming physical social networks. In Jungle by sturmfrei, people from different backgrounds gather, communicate, develop, and live together under one roof, creating a new age Jungle that emphasizes unity and real human connection.

What matters in Jungle by sturmfrei is not skin color, nationality, or religion, but the inter-connection and bond that people form with each other.
