There’s no two ways about it – booking hotels and renting out properties is exxy. On top of the cost per person, you’ve got cleaning fees, service charges and a lot of other nasty hidden costs. We offer high quality budget accommodation on a shoestring – when you book out one of our 4 or 6 share rooms, you’re only paying for your fabulous spacious room. Split the cost evenly and you're all set!
The thing about hostels? You meet people who are exactly like you – and the same goes for mini groups! Chances are, in one of our fabulous common areas you’ll meet another small group of like-minded Aussie travellers. Join forces and create a super group – get to know each other at a free wine and cheese night and then hit the town together.
Try your hand at beer pong at Sydney Harbour YHA!
When you book a stay with YHA, you automatically become a member, entitling you to a whole lotta fabulous discounts! You can use them right away, on everything from skydiving to sushi restaurants, zoos to bowling alleys, all around Australia. How’s that for a perk?
No need to sleep with strangers and worry about that one guy who comes and turns on the lights in the middle of the night. When you all know each other, you can all be back at the same time and have a good nights’ sleep. Just don’t lose any friendships over who gets the top and bottom bunk!
Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean in a 4-share room at Port Elliot YHA.
Those friendly faces at reception? They’re not just to help solo travellers. When you’re not quite sure what to do next, come on down and say hello. You’ll get the low-down from experts on the best places to go, things to see and food and bevvies to consume. Talking to a human definitely beats a half-arsed sheet of paper left by property owners you’ll never meet.
Say hey to a friendly face at Perth City YHA.
We offer a lively, friendly and stimulating environment, with decked out common spaces just waiting for memories to be made. In years to come, you’ll always remember the interesting characters you met at YHA – whether you played a board game together, shared breakfast foods or misplaced your dignity on a night out. Now you can’t get that from a hotel room.
