YHA is a not-for-profit membership organisation, and part of Hostelling International, the world’s largest youth travel organisation. YHA’s mission is to provide opportunity for all, but especially young people, for education through travel. The organisation has a strong commitment to sustainability with a program of environmental initiatives including solar power, water saving and recycling.

All groups that stay with YHA automatically qualify for group membership. This provides a range of benefits and is at no extra charge to you as it is included in your stay. Full details of this are available from our Group Coordinator.

A very nice, well organised, central hostel with friendly and helpful staff.
