Our properties are implementing all the government’s Social Distancing and Public Gathering guidelines and safe hygiene practices. Guests will need to follow them and will be asked to agree to our COVID-19 additional Guest Code of Conduct which is here.
YHA has a range of hostels that are still open – from Sydney to Perth. You can see up to date information on which hostels are open, any changes to reception and opening hours, and which properties are closed here.
These hostels are offering low cost, good quality residential accommodation on a weekly or monthly basis in dorms with single or couple occupancy, or private rooms. You can find more information on what offers are available here. To arrange a stay please contact the hostel directly.
YHA now has enhanced actions in place at our hostels.
YHA understands that you may be facing uncertain times and impact from COVID-19. The team at YHA, along with the whole tourism sector, is also going through a similar experience. It has caused disruption to travel plans, and some hostels have had to close temporarily.
YHA is a not-for-profit membership organisation and all funds go to continuing to run a network of hostels. We exist to offer a home away from home for travellers, and to bring together people from various countries and backgrounds who share one thing in common: a thirst to see the world.
