How to book


    To make your trip as hassle-free as possible, YHA Australia provides different options for you to book your accommodation.

    1. Book online at and pay with your credit card. Your booking will be confirmed immediately and you will be charged for your whole stay upfront.

    2. Contact the hostel directly by phone or email and pay by credit card.

    3. If you are already at a YHA hostel, ask our friendly staff to book your next hostel for you.

    Please notify the hostel immediately if you need to cancel your booking. If you cancel with more than 24 hours notice a 5% cancellation fee will apply. If less than 24 hours notice is given, a cancellation fee equivalent to one overnight will be charged.

    * If you booked a special deal, package or booked a stay during a peak period, please check the specific terms and conditions of the individual product. Some of these may be non-refundable or have other individual conditions. Special conditions apply for all bookings at Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon YHAs and Thredbo YHA during ski season. Explore hostels may have individual terms and conditions. Please refer to the information sheet provided on the hostel details page.
