Your donation matters now

Our hostels have temporarily closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Without our hostel revenue, we need your tax-deductible donation to ensure our life-changing programming continues.

Donate

I give to HI USA because the world needs more kindness, compassion, and understanding. There’s nothing quite like a hostel experience to encourage one to get comfortable with people who are different than them, and our world needs that more than ever right now.
