Each year in January and February, our Great Hostel Give Back Program offers groups of 6 or more an opportunity to receive one free night's stay (up to five nights) at a select HI USA hostel for each day its members spend volunteering at least two hours in the surrounding community.

HI USA’s lounges, kitchens, and dining rooms ensure plenty of opportunities to connect with other travelers. We invite your group to join in with our free events, tours, and activities to meet like-minded travelers and explore the hidden gems of the city.

Whether you are service group, a college group or just a group of friends wanting to visit somewhere new and give back to the community, apply now for the Great Hostel Give Back program and help us make the world a better place.
