Welcome to our hostel

If your group is looking for a slice of history when they stay in Baltimore, then our hostel here could be the one for you. Because it is housed in a beautiful mansion which dates back to 1857 and is slap bang opposite the first cathedral which was ever built in the States – the Baltimore Basilica.

HI-Baltimore hostel is located in the heart of downtown Baltimore City. Nestled between the Washington Monument and the Inner Harbor just off Charles Street; this stately youth hostel is within walking distance of everything that makes Baltimore City terrific!

There is something for all types of groups in Baltimore. Explore the world famous Lexington Market or spend the day relaxing in the parks surrounding the Washington Monument or if it’s wild that you’re after, why not visit the National Aquarium and the Maryland Zoo?

For sports groups why not ask about seeing a game at Camden Yards and Raven’s Stadium which are just a 10 minute walk away? And don’t forget, Washington DC is just a short 50 minute train ride away.

Don’t forget to ask at reception about a number of group tours and activities that the staff organise. If you want a guided tour of the city or would like to join a bar-hopping excursion, then just ask…

And of course all guests which stay at HI-Baltimore can enjoy the daily free pancake breakfast. Scrumptious.

Are you a particularly large group? Then why not enquire about hiring out the entire hostel? This includes exclusive use of the whole hostel, sleeping accommodation for up to 44 people, full use of the kitchen facilities, a meeting space, 24 hour access, full staff support, free pancake breakfast, availability of special programming or meal nights prepared by staff, and so much more! Off season rates start from $900.00 per night, or peak season from $1200.00.
