Mission Statement

The Hostelling International - Portland, Northwest Hostel is affiliated with Hostelling International USA, a nonprofit organization with the mission "to help all, especially the young, gain a greater understanding of the world and its people through hostelling."

To fulfill this mission, we provide educational and recreational opportunities for people of all ages and nationalities through low-cost, high-quality accommodations and activities. Through formal programming as well as informal socializing among hostellers, we promote international awareness and understanding. The HI-Portland, Northwest Hostel was established in 1998 as a 34-bed hostel. Since then, we have expanded and now have a total of 74 dorm beds and 20 private rooms.

Hostelling International USA (registered as American Youth Hostels, Inc.) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership organization founded in 1934 to promote international understanding of the world and its people through hostelling. HI-USA is an organization driven by its mission of promoting global understanding through educational travel. Hostels, by design, are facilities that encourage interaction among their inhabitants. Common rooms, shared kitchen facilities, and small dormitory accommodations provide an environment that leads to valuable lessons in cooperative living. The very essence of the hostelling experience nurtures intercultural exchange, and it is in this context that all program content is implemented and enhanced."To help all especially the young, gain a greater understanding of the World and it's people through hostelling"
