Description provided by property

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 12 bed single gender dorms and 8 bed coed dorms, all with ensuite baths. We also offer two private rooms with a double bed and shared bath. We also have a 4 bed family room available with a private bath located just off the kitchen.

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!

Don\'t forget about our area discounts giving you great deals at over two dozen restaurants, bars, and shops throughout the city. You receive a list of discount partners when you check in!
