YHA for Families

There’s no need to break the bank or cut back on comfort when holidaying with your family. YHA offers accommodation at a fraction of the cost of hotels so families can save their money for their sweet New Zealand adventures. 

YHAs aren’t just for backpackers. We offer dedicated private rooms with bunks for the little ones and double beds for the grown-ups. Many of these rooms have ensuites so when your kids need to make that emergency nighttime pit stop, they won’t have to leave the room. Got an extra little bub? Many of our hostels have cots available.

Staying with YHA means you can whip up your favourite home-cooked meals in our fully-equipped kitchens. With everything provided you only need to bring the groceries and the kids will still get their 5+ a day. And because you’re spending less by cooking in, you can save you money to spend on the fun stuff. 

Make yourselves at home in our comfortable lounges, gardens, barbecue areas and hang-out rooms with games and DVDs. There'll be plenty of chances to learn about different cultures and to brush up on your French or Mandarin by chatting with guests from around the world. And sleep easy knowing YHA takes the safety of our guests seriously. YHA have thorough security and staff are contactable 24/7. You’re also guaranteed that we have no bars on site.

With over 35 YHAs in the best spots around New Zealand you won’t need to sleep on Uncle Pete’s pull-out couch for your next family holiday. So pack up your whānau and hit the road with YHA. Check into your private room, make yourself at home and go do what you actually set out to do. You’re not staying in a hotel. You’re staying at our place.
