Why Support HI-USA?

It takes quality hostels and quality programs to bring to life HI-USA’s uniquely important mission:

To help all, especially the young, gain a greater understanding of the world and its people through hostelling.

Your financial support will allow HI-USA to build on years of success and deliver the hostelling experience to even more people.

Because overnight fees cover only part of our operational and program costs, we rely on your support to:

  1. Enable safe, clean and affordable travel for those that otherwise could not do so;
  2. Create a hostel environment that encourages interaction and exchange among travelers of different backgrounds and cultures;
  3. Develop and deliver educational programs that promote cross-cultural understanding and a stronger global community.

American Youth Hostels, Inc. (d.b.a. Hostelling International USA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Learn more
