YHA Australia is a not-for-profit membership organisation. Guests like you are the reason we exist and our hostels offer travellers from around the world the opportunity to discover Australia and have a life-changing experience through friendship and adventure. As a for-purpose organisation, all funds are used to run and improve hostels, and offer new locations.
COVID-19 is a challenging time for everyone. Even the best prepared traveller feels uncertain, and as trips are postponed we encourage you to keep dreaming of travel in the future. We're a small team of passionate travellers, and we can't wait to welcome you back to our hostels when the time is right. There has been a huge impact on all Australian travel business, both large and small, from the bushfires and now COVID-19. YHA has felt these impacts. Amongst it all, we want to thank you; for your patience as we help people through this crisis and for understanding the changes we have had to make.
As YHA plans for the weeks and months ahead, we are making sure to keep up-to-date information available on the changes to hostel operations page - and changes during your stay on the COVID-19 information page.
