Are you planning a trip with your school group? Camp group? Hockey, rugby or tennis team? Do you need to sort out your group accommodation? YHA New Zealand has the hostels and the expertise to help.

Why book your group with YHA New Zealand?

YHA is New Zealand’s leading group accommodation provider with years of group accommodation experience. With 45+ hostels across New Zealand, YHA can offer you the best locations to suit your needs, whatever your group size.

Groups Coordinators

We understand organising a group trip can be a time consuming and difficult, especially if your group is planning to stay in more than one location. We have Groups Coordinators who can help you plan and book all of your YHA accommodation. We will also help you book your land-based transport and activities. We’ll get you from Auckland to Rotorua or Nelson to Christchurch, or wherever your school group needs to be and we'll organise your bungees and zoo trips in each location.

Stuck for ideas of where to go and what to do? YHA covers most of the popular locations throughout New Zealand. Visit our activities grid for group activity ideas.


Our hostels for groups

Once you’re on the road, your group can kick up their feet in one of our hostel’s safe and secure shared rooms and chill out zones. When your group gets hungry, cook up a feed in our well-equipped self-catering kitchens, a cost-effective way to feed your group and to tailor to any dietary needs. All of our kitchens are well stocked with cutlery, crockery and utensils so you just need to plan the menu and bring the groceries! Or if you’d prefer to eat out, we can recommend local group and child-friendly restaurants. In some locations caterers will even come to the hostel to cook for you. Most YHAs can offer continental breakfast options.

YHA can guarantee that your group’s shared rooms will be exclusive to you and that all bedding is provided.

YHA takes the health, safety and welfare of all customers, staff and volunteers seriously. We are committed to the safety of your group. We guarantee:

By booking your group accommodation with YHA New Zealand, all you need to bring are your suitcases and sports gear. And your group, of course! We’ll help you sort out the rest.
