About Us

We are a non profit membership organization founded in 1933 and the Canadian affiliate of the International Youth Hostel Federation (IYHF). Our mission is:

“To help all, especially the young, gain a greater understanding
of people, places and cultures through hostelling.”
Our objective is to provide travellers a good night’s sleep in friendly and comfortable surroundings at an affordable price.

HI-Canada hostels are located coast to coast and are open to people of all ages, however, anyone under 14 should be accompanied by an adult. When you become a member in Canada you also receive membership privileges in more than 60 countries worldwide.
