The HI hostel in Austin, Texas, USA is celebrating its 20th anniversary tomorrow:
Austin's foremost hostel has lent a helping hand to travelers from around the world for 20 years, and officials are planning an anniversary celebration Saturday to celebrate the milestone.
The commemoration is open to the public, and those with travel interests are particularly welcome, said Anneke Stagg, the hostel's assistant director. The hostel is located about a half-mile east of Interstate 35 on Town Lake.
The 20th anniversary event will include a number of exhibits and speakers to inform visitors about programs at the hostel, according to the site.
"We have a Travel Circle that meets at the hostel twice a month, and we get some young people and a lot of people that are adults that have either done traveling recently, done it in the past, or are still really interested in it," Stagg said.
Hostel enthusiasts also gather to discuss international issues impacting travelers in a public forum called the Global Citizen.
