Pittsburgh Needs a Hostel

A hostel is inexpensive lodging in shared quarters, often geared towards young travelers who want to explore great cities across the United States and the world. The city of Pittsburgh has been without a hostel since the previous hostel closed its doors several years ago.

Pittsburgh is a remarkable city, with diverse, walkable neighborhoods accessible by bike, car, public transportation, and even by watercraft from our three rivers. We have world-renowned galleries, parks, museums and universities, have been named a top outdoor adventure destination by National Geographic Adventure magazine, are often voted one of the most livable cities, and boast a variety of restaurants and nightlife opportunities.

Having a hostel in Pittsburgh would increase the number of people who stop to visit our town, and help folks from across the globe see and experience all that we have to offer.

A group of individuals is now working to plan for a new hostel. We need your help to make it happen. If you’re interested in seeing a hostel come to Pittsburgh, or you’d like to get involved, please contact us using the survey form to the right. We also accept donations securely via PayPal.
