When Did You Fall in Love with Hostelling

valeninte's day hi usa hostels

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

hi usa 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.

Stay at HI Sacramento, Learn Something New

One of the many perks of traveling is that, even when you’re not really trying, you’re expanding your mind. You’re figuring out how to navigate unfamiliar territory, you’re learning about different cultures and customs, and you’re discovering things about yourself that you might not have discovered in your comfort zone. So, while your mind is in sponge-mode – absorbing everything that you possibly can – we figure it’s a good idea to take advantage of that and see what else you can learn.
