Sometimes, talking to strangers can be a very good thing.

HI USA hostels bring together travelers from more than 100 countries, enabling dialogue among kindred spirits from diverse backgrounds. These personal connections often provide new perspective on global issues and world cultures.

HI USA is a non-profit organization founded on an enduring belief in the power of travel to foster a deeper understanding of people, places and the world around, which leads to a more tolerant world.

On September 21, HI USA hostels across the country will celebrate the United Nations International Day of Peace with unique activities that reflect the personality of the hostel’s destination.
