In brief: Several poss. causes

'hip' is an ill-defined term. You may mean lateral hip or low back.
Lateral could be bursitis, tendinitis, muscle imbalance, etc. Posterior 'hip' & buttock pain is often caused by lumbar nerve, disc, or ligament injury, pyriformis syndrome, lumbar vertebral dysfunction, or sacroiliac problems. Most of these will be missed by many docs.A good physical, including osteopathic exam, may define a cause.
