Who would have thought that New Zealand's most affordable accommodation network would also be the one to offer the best free WiFi deals? We know how costly, challenging and important it is to stay connected with family and friends back home. So we're offering free WiFi to our guests through our managed hostel network and some of our associate network.
However, the supply of WiFi is not as easy or affordable as you may think for our smaller associate hostels, especially in remote locations.
In order to keep your room costs to a minimum some of our privately-run hostels have a small charge for WiFi usage. Actual costs will vary and not all hostels have WiFi access (the horror! We're sure you'll manage).
Hostels offering 2GB free WiFi per day across the YHA network
At this time our internet provider unfortunately cannot provide us with the facilities to offer you any extra WiFi allowance, either free or paid, over and above the 2GB per day. However this limit does occur per device, so use your allocation wisely :)
Please note that this allowance does run across the network. This means if you change hostels during the day, you'll still be connected to the same network which gives you 2GB total, rather than the allowance renewing at your next hostel.
