HostelingOn’s Purpose

HostelingOn’s mission is to preserve and promote the hostel movement. Hostels help connect people of all ages and cultures so they can experience and learn about local communities through travel, shared experiences, and sustainable tourism. Hostels are visitor accommodation facilities that offer communal and private lodging to school groups, families, and independent travelers. Guests share facilities, resources, and experiences to make travel more affordable, more fun, and less impactful on the environment.


The officers, directors, committee members, employees, and persons served by this corporation shall be selected entirely on a nondiscriminatory basis with respect to age, sex, race, religion, national origin, and sexual orientation. HostelingOn, Inc.’s policy is not to discriminate based on race, creed, ancestry, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical disability, veteran’s status, political service or affiliation, color, religion, or national origin.


Each board director shall read the Corporation’s Bylaws & Conflict of Interest Policy and sign a written statement that he or she has read and understands the policy, agrees to comply with the policy, and understands the Corporation is a nonprofit. To maintain its federal tax exemption, it must engage primarily in activities that accomplish one or more of its tax-exempt purposes.


Our board typically meets on the 2nd Tuesday following each quarter. 2024 board meetings are set for Jan 11, Apr 11, Jul 11, and Oct 10.
