HI USA takes travel seriously. So seriously in fact that along with offering enlightening hostelling experiences across America, our non-profit organization is also dedicated to spreading the joy of seeing the world. That’s why we run several signature programs for hostel guests and community members both young and young at heart who would like to open their souls to creating a better understanding of people, places and cultures through travel and doing good.
