"To help all, especially the young, gain a greater understading of the world and its people through hostelling."
Hostelling International Boston (HI-Boston) is owned and managed by Hostelling International USA (HI-USA), both of which are part of a worldwide, not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing the cultural interchange by facilitating worldwide travel. HI-Boston has operated a hostel in Boston since 1983 and opened a new hostel in June 2012. The new hostel is anticipated to bring more than 46,000 visitors to Boston each year, 60 percent of which will be international guests coming from over 85 countries. The facility has been constructed to LEED certification standards and is committed to a green initiative. HI-Boston is dedicated to its community and provides a location and outreach programming where Boston youth are educated about global cultures. For more information: www.bostonhostel.org.
