Hostelling International USA believes in the power of travel to foster a deeper understanding of people, places, and the world around. This passion is at the heart of everything we do.


HI USA promotes a dynamic community of global citizens who have the wisdom and humanity to actively make the world a better place. Our nearly 50 hostels nationwide open doors to cultural discovery among people from across the country and around the world. As travelers get to know each other, they discover both their similarities and their differences, making their worldviews just a little bigger. Our guests connect with the destination’s local community through our volunteer-led experiences and through our partnerships with local shops, restaurants and venues. By exploring beyond the typical tourist attractions, hostellers get to see new cities and towns through the eyes of locals. They become travelers, not just tourists.

Due to the evolving conditions of COVID19, and out of an abundance of care, we are temporarily closed as a hostel. We are joining the worldwide effort to stop the spread of coronavirus and protecting our guests, hostel team members and volunteers. So, for maximum privacy and safety, HI Sacramento is currently only offering private vacation rentals of the entire facility, instead of dorm or private rooms.

We are keeping busy planning exciting new things to share once we’re up and running again

so this is not a goodbye, but see you soon. Until then, stay healthy and take care!
