Property Description

HI-Baltimore is located in the heart of the city in the vibrant Mount Vernon Neighborhood. We are two blocks south of the Washington Monument, directly across the street from the Baltimore Basilica, America's first Cathedral, as well as the main branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. We are easily accessible from BWI Airport and from Penn Station where Amtrak, Bolt Bus, and MVP Bus stop. Get around the city on the FREE shuttle bus (Charm City Circulator) - we are located at the Mulberry Street stop going South and the Pleasant Street stop going North.

HI-Baltimore was voted third best hostel in North America by hostelworld in 2008. Come see what everyone is talking about! We are located in an historic 19th century mansion complete with a large parlor with a piano, large dining room, full guest use kitchen where we serve the daily FREE pancake breakfast, a back deck and lower patio with grills for cooking outdoors, a TV room with a 42' flat screen TV and a huge library of movies, FREE guest use computer with Internet, FREE WiFi throughout the building, and guest laundry for $2.00 wash and $2.00 dry. We have 10, 12 and 6 bed single gender dorms and 8 bed coed dorms, all with ensuite baths. We also offer one private room with two twin beds and ensuite bathroom.

Be sure to check the hostel for the free weekly events including pub crawls, movie nights, city tours, meal nights featuring make your own pizza, tacos and all you can eat pasta, as well as monthly poetry events art openings and a local writer series called Last Rites Baltimore.

If you haven't been to Baltimore, you don't know what you are missing! At half the price of other east coast cities you can do a lot more in Baltimore than you can imagine. The hostel is walking distance to the Inner Harbor, Sport Stadiums, Convention Center, and the Mount Vernon and City Center Neighborhoods. We are surrounded by pubs, bars, nightclubs, and restaurants including Mick O'Sheas Irish Pub, the Yacht Club, Sonar Nightclub, the Talking Head Club, Bourbon Street, and a wide variety of restaurants. There is a grocery store one block from the hostel to buy food to cook your own meals. If you want to go bar hopping be sure to venture to Federal Hill around the Cross Street Market or Fells Point along Thames Street. Should you be after local art, music, and the hipster crowd you don't want to miss Station North with Club Charles, the Hexagon, the WindUp Space, Metro Gallery, and the Charles Theater for independent movies. And you certainly don't want to miss Brewers Art where they brew their own very potent beer and better yet by staying at the hostel you receive happy hour pricing at all times by presenting your receipt!

    Fantastic place to stay! From the second I walked through the door the staff were friendly and helpful and the building (including the kitchen!) was gorgeous and very clean. They have lockers for valuables and are located a walk away from some great sites, and an easy bus ride from others. Loved it!

    Staff is prompt, professional, friendly, easy-going and helpful. Hostel interior full of character and charm. Public transit nearby, including from airport. Area around hostel and neighboring Lexington Market is a mix of historical buildings, bustling businesses and urban decay. But don't let the rundown parts dissuade you. I did most of my exploring by foot. Enjoy.

    This would across the board 10 stars but unfortunately the night I stayed, the ac broke creating a very uncomfortable and hot atmosphere and difficult to sleep in the bunks. I ended up getting up and sitting downstairs a couple hours just to stay cool.

    Okay hostel in a beautiful and well-located mansion. The breakfast was nothing more than an apple and a cup of coffee, because the bread was literally rotten (to the hostel staff: you should throw it out before someone eats it). I got constantly woken up in the middle of the night by a guy in my dorm that snored like hell or decided 4 am was the proper time to make loud phone calls. The hostel did the job for a couple of nights, but I definitely won’t come back.
