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, because of the large number of people using these sites to book. We don’t mind investing some money with these guys to help spread the word about our awesome hostels. We just need to balance how much that figure is, which is where you come in!
If you're booking multiple hostels, using InterCity buses to get around, 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 but only if you book direct. We also have some great partner discounts on transport and activity options throughout New Zealand. Your YHA membership is valid around the world so you continue to benefit from membership even when you travel beyond our shores.
So, please help us. Book direct – every cent counts.
