Do the maths – you can either spend $260 a night to bunk in the spare room of some dude’s pokey apartment, or book a private room at YHA for a fraction of the price. Oh, and we won’t sting you for a sneaky cleaning fee.
And don’t spend the first two hours of your time away schlepping it halfway across town to fetch your key off that dude. YHA’s network of 80-plus hostels in every corner of Australia means you’ll always find a conveniently located hostel wherever you’re going.
When you knock on the door of a home-share rental, you hardly know who (or what…) is going to be waiting on the other side. When you see YHA’s house-and-tree logo, you know you’re walking into a clean, comfortable and affordable place to stay.
Righto, so you’ve indulged in one shandy too many, Uber’s surging at 3.5x and the queue for a taxi is longer than the wait list for some trendy Melbourne eatery that’s Insta-famous for its lavender-infused kale crisps and imported craft beer served out of a laboratory flask. Should’ve booked a hostel.
Hey, you’ll be frittering away your first home deposit on those lavender-infused kale crisps and smashed avo brunches that you’ll need to save a dollar on your accommodation.
Kitchen. Bed. Air con. And showers. Sweet, sweet showers. Once you experience a festival from the comfort of a hostel, you’ll never go back to camping again.
Same deal – don’t worry about finding your way home after a late-night gig when there’s comfy hostel beds to crash in.
Airport, dump your bags, pub, game, pub, next pub, another pub, one pub too many, bed time. Whether you’re in town for footy, cricket or ancient Greco Roman wrestling, there’s a YHA close to the stadium for your night’s sleep.
Don’t spend your night nervously staring at the time on your phone like a desperate teenager checking if their crush has messaged them back. Skip the last train and book a hostel bed instead.
When you’re going away with a bunch of mates, consider Rent-a-YHA – there are entire properties you can book all for yourself.
Good. Book your stay direct through yha.com.au for the lowest price, guaranteed.
