Mission Statement

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


For more than 80 years, HI USA has been the country’s leading hostel brand. Our fun and affordable hostels are located in top cities and unique destinations: think converted mansions, reinvented lighthouses, beach communities and national parks. We bring travelers together locally and from around the world, and that’s just the start. From local tours and curated travel experiences to events and experiential learning programs, HI USA strives to bring moments of cultural enrichment & understanding to everyone who stays with us or joins one of our events. We believe in the power of travel to foster a deeper understanding of people, places, and the world around - in fact, it’s our nonprofit mission.

We welcome your support! If you like our programming or hostels and wish to contribute, whether with your feedback, as a future speaker or with a donation, your help is appreciated. Please visit our website to contact us. You can offer a tax-deductible donation at hiusa.org/donate.
