The Great Hostel Give Back

Hostelling International USA is piloting a program this winter called “The Great Hostel Give Back”. In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 40 Days of Service, participating hostels are giving away overnights in January and February. To qualify, a group must fill out an application form online and have 10 (ten) or more people who commit to at least 2 (two) hours of community service during their trip for each night they plan to stay at the hostel for free.
