You don't have to sleep with us to benefit from a YHA membership!

You're welcome to stay at YHA without being a member but you'd be silly not to join! The extra perks are worth it.

We've gone digital, which is better for the planet and gives you even more perks, straight to your pocket!

We've partnered with ISIC New Zealand to bring you a digital discount card with over 2,000 benefits across New Zealand and Australia courtesy of Frequent Values, (the makers of the Entertainment BookTM).

If you're under 31 you also have the added benefit of joining ISIC's International Youth Travel Card with over 150,000 discounts worldwide!
