The two astronauts, both veterans of Space Shuttle missions, boarded the orbiting space lab Sunday following the eagerly-anticipated launch of the Demo-2 mission from Kennedy Space Center atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.
The mission marks the first time that a privately built and owned spacecraft carried two astronauts to the ISS in its almost 20-year-history.
Behnken said he and Hurley were able to get a few hours' sleep during their 19-hour orbital journey, telling the administrator that "the first night is always a little bit of a challenge, but the Dragon is a slick vehicle and we had good airflow so we had an excellent evening".
Hurley and crewmate Bob Behnken began docking day on Sunday with Black Sabbath's song Planet Caravan played to them by mission controllers in Hawthorne, California, a musical interlude ahead of their reunion with Nasa colleague Chris Cassidy, who has been aboard the ISS since mid-April.

After the launch of Behnken and Hurley on board the Crew Dragon, a visibly emotional Elon Musk, founder and owner of SpaceX, told journalists, "I'm really overcome with emotion, and it's really hard to talk".
Nineteen hours after take-off, the astronauts reached the International Space Station.
SpaceX also made history by becoming the first private company to send humans into orbit. "It was the first crew arrival from the USA side of the ISS since the last space shuttle mission in 2011", SpaceFlightInsider wrote.
The Crew Dragon being used for this flight test can stay in orbit about 110 days, and the specific mission duration will be determined once on the station, based on the readiness of the next commercial crew launch.
NASA has yet to decide how long Hurley and Behnken will spend at the space station, but it will be somewhere between one and four months.
