HI Madison is a charming, 3-story brick home located in the vibrant neighborhood that surrounds the state’s Capitol building. Our open, shared kitchen inspires conversations between guests who come from near and far and on most days, you’ll catch the scent of unique cuisines being cooked We welcome you to enjoy the nostalgic charm of our homey hostel and relax in this Midwest oasis.

Madison is perpetually teeming with life all year-round. Take a tour of a craft brewery, cheer on the University of Wisconsin Badgers football team, experience the bountiful Dane County Farmer’s Market, stroll through the Olbrich Botanical Gardens, or simply explore the lively streets of Madison. We recommend a lakeside walk at sunset and of course, cheese curds are a must in the Dairy State!

Live shows, dueling pianos, and performing arts abound in Madison, making it the perfect destination for music lovers of all kinds. You don’t even have to set foot outside the hostel to enjoy the city’s rich music scene. Right here at the hostel our piano inspires frequent jam sessions with guests and staff. If you’re travelling with an instrument, we love impromptu concerts from talented musicians. Let us know in advance and we’ll invite all the guests.

HI Madison is just steps away from the historic Wisconsin State Capitol, the stunning Monona Terrace, State Street, multiple museums, and more bars per capita than anywhere else in the U.S.A. Come to HI Madison to enjoy everything this unique city has to offer while making some new friends along the way. The hostel offers free breakfast accommodations daily, free Wi-Fi, shared kitchen and laundry facilities, and affordable private parking. We look forward to welcoming you at HI Madison.


Treat yourself to an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and make your next stop the Eagle Home hostel nestled in the Kettle Moraine State Forest.
