HI USA hostels bring people together and foster a global community of travelers that promote a more tolerant and peaceful world. Across the nation HI USA is celebrating Sleep for Peace!

Join us at HI Chicago for our International Peace Open House. We will have a variety of activities to spark discussion around peace.
