HI USA believes travel should be accessible to everyone, and one way we’re helping make this possible is through the Explore the World scholarship. Eighty-one $2,000 scholarships will be awarded to individuals who are keen to venture overseas on an educational or service learning journey. If you’re interested in taking a trip to deepen your understanding of people, places, and cultures, this scholarship might be for you.  

When Did You Fall in Love with Hostelling

childhood memories 
from far and wide 
that stayed with us and others 
and brought the word 
'hostel' to me and dreams 
of train trips to Europe and Japan
to my sisters. 

We threw parties
that threw open the gates
opening our fences 
joining our backyards, 
for a few nights
before returning to our 
day jobs.

Great Hostel Give Back

At HI USA, we believe in the power of travel to open minds and the power of community service to open hearts. Above all, we believe that these experiences should be rewarding – not costly. That's why, for the sixth consecutive year, we are offering groups across the country free overnight stays at HI USA hostels in January and February 2016 through our Great Hostel Give Back (GHGB) program.

Off the Beaten Path Bucket List

If you’re the type of traveler who likes to go to new places so that you can get a better understanding of the people and the culture that makes the essence of a city, then you’re not likely to turn to oft-visited websites and guide books for suggestions of things to do and see. That’s why we’ve created our own little Bucket List – one that’s great for those who are returning to San Francisco and looking for new experiences and deeper exploration, as well as for first-time visitors who like to steer clear of tourist magnets.
