Sustainability at HI Austin

Hostelling International Austin sign

Since opening in 1989, HI Austin has worked diligently to minimize our impact on the physical environment while providing a comfortable, fun, and educational hostel experience for hostel guests. As a result, HI Austin is recognized as a “Sustainable Living Center” by our national organization, Hostelling International-USA. At our hostel, individuals from more than 35 countries each year see that Austinites care enough to take action to protect our natural resources.

2010 Neighborhood Beautification Grant Recipient from Keep Austin Beautiful

Funding from Keep Austin Beautiful was used to plant a vegetable garden for travelers to eat from, plant native plants, paint peace inspired murals and complete a beautification project in the front yard area.

The goal of this project is to make the space much more reflective of Austin for visiting travelers from all over the globe.

Lake, Trail and Park Cleanups

We host clean ups in partnership with Keep Austin Beautiful throughout the year. Check out events page for when we will be hosting our next clean up. The hostel is located on beautiful Lady Bird Lake and in a City of Austin park so we like to do our best to keep our area clean and green!
