YHA New Zealand is a not for profit organisation
Every dollar we earn goes straight back into providing the best possible facilities and the best possible service we can.
It costs you nothing extra to book direct and if you're a member you even get a 10% discount!
We are also committed to creating a network that is environmentally sustainable which is why we invest in renewable energy systems.
It does add up. Each year we spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on commission to online travel agents like Booking.com or Hostelworld. We don’t mind investing some money with these guys, they do help us spread the word. We just need to balance how much that figure is and that’s where you come in.
If you are booking multiple hostels, use Intercity or staying in private rooms you’ll also find that becoming a member of YHA is well worth it.
YHA members get 10% discount off all YHA accommodation and we have some great partner discounts for transport and activity options throughout New Zealand. In fact your YHA membership is valid around the world so you continue to benefit from membership even when you travel beyond our shores.
So, help us please. Book direct – every cent counts.
