About HI USA

Did you know HI USA is a non-profit?

Hostelling International USA (HI USA) is founded on an enduring belief in the power of travel to foster a deeper understanding of people, places, and cultures for a more tolerant world. Our hostels bring together travelers from 100+ countries in conversation and friendship, which often leads to new perspective on global issues and cultural understanding.

Our shared kitchens, dining rooms and lounges ensure plenty of opportunities to connect with other travelers, and with hostel events and programs ranging from casual outings to rich cultural activities we help you get to know the destination as we do, beyond what you’ll find in guidebooks.

Join our HI USA community of travelers, united by a spirit of discovery. We share a passion for travel and a desire to come together to learn more about our world, each other, and ourselves.
