Hostelling International Austin provides accommodation for travelers from around the world and other cultural activities for visitors and Austin residents. Their mission is "to help all, especially the young, gain a greater understanding of the world and its people through hostelling." Imagine a world where intercultural dialogue and responsible travel are part of every individual's experience. Hostelling International Austin’s programs strive to build a new generation of global citizens, unburdened by stereotypes, emboldened by open minds, appreciative of their own heritage and understanding of others, through dialogue and education. Join us to learn more about their programs including Cultural Kitchen, world travel classes, and travel clubs.
