When our government declared the initial nationwide lockdown, I thought it was temporary. Maybe a month or two at most and everything will return to normal. And as instructed by the government to help stop the spread of the virus, we followed the protocol and closed our hostel for a month.
When the announcement of the extension of the lockdown came, fear came over me as I saw the drop of our occupancy from full capacity to zero. Just like everyone else, we held our breath for what is to come.
This prompted me to think and plan ahead as our finances will leave us no choice but to permanently close our hostel if we are to have no revenue for the next two to three months. This is something I am not ready to do or even willing to entertain the possibility of as I have a responsibility as a hostel owner to my staff. I had to come up with a solution and act fast.
