Mission Statement

To help all, especially the young, gain a greater understanding of the world and its people through hostelling.


HI New York's volunteer program serves the over quarter-million visitors each year who stay in North America's largest and New York's most popular hostel. For over 20 years, HI New York has welcomed travelers to New York City. Our goal is to create active world citizens and to have a broader understanding of the world. We are looking for people to help our hostellers connect with New York and the world.

It is a great way to meet and interact with people from all around the world and learn about their country. If bilingual or learning a new foreign language, this would be a great place to practice! The staff at the Hostel are friendly and helpful. So far, I became friends with someone from France and Argentina! We keep in touch through social media. The Pub Crawl after is fun too!
