This entire network, known as Hostelling International, offers more than 4,000 hostels in over 80 countries. Hostelling International USA and the blue triangle with the tree and hut are the trademark and seal of approval of the IYHF, assuring travelers quality, affordable accommodations that are routinely inspected and travel programs worldwide.

I have so many experiences which make me joyful and unforgettable in international hostel both in US and in China. I really enjoy and highly committed to the culture there. This Thansgiving, I stayed in the hostel New York. The volunteers helped to provide us a wonderful thanksgiving dinner. I loved the food and the kind smile they have. I thought I can not get turky this thanksgiving because I arrived a little late and all the nearby restaurant closed that time. The volunteers really gave me a big surprise! I want to be one of them to pass happy and good well to others!
