Work Away From Home

Whether you need a break from the office, you travel for work, or you're simply looking for some location inspiration - YHAs make great places to adopt the lifestyle of a digital nomad or use as a base for your next work trip.

It's being called 'Living at Work' and there's no doubt we all need a change and sometimes a few days out of the house can be just what is needed to help spark inspiration and keep you feeling fresh. Picture yourself working from one of our rooftop decks or sitting beside a pool, with all the convenience and amenities of home (and even the office):

  • Private rooms with ensuites available as well as co-living spaces with limited occupancy
  • Free Wi-Fi, ultra and high-speed fibre internet connection from 100bps to 400bps across major cities and non-rural areas.
  • Co-working spaces and meeting rooms (available at some hostels)
  • Great common areas and quiet places to work
  • Opportunity to meet fellow freelancers & like-minded travellers
  • Jobs Boards with contacts to local employers (available at some hostels)
  • Kitchen and laundry facilities
  • Onsite cafes (available at some hostels)
