YHA is New Zealand's leading hostel accommodation network rating among the best in the world. We want you to have a great night's sleep so you can focus on exploring and connecting with New Zealand.
That's why we focus on doing the basics very well. Multishare rooms also mean your money can be spent on creating awesome memories instead of fluffy dressing gowns you'll never wear!
All linen is provided, 5Gb of WiFi is free across the managed hostels (see the itinerary for details) and we'll provide towels in each location. Every hostel has laundry facilities so you can pack light.
If sharing is not your thing, you can request an upgrade to a private room in some locations. These are subject to availability, there is an upgrade charge and these rooms are in high demand. To request an upgrade please use this form.
Our hostels are located centrally and are within a short walk of the town centres. This means you don't need to worry about other transport options to get to the heart of the action.
Not every day needs to be filled with activities and attractions. Often, the best days are simply taking some time to walk around and absorb the sights and sounds of the city, town or village you are staying.
Of course, it also means our hostels are close to all the great restaurants and bars!
The beauty of hostels is the way they connect travellers from all over the world. You'll have plenty of opportunity to chill out in our large communal lounges, sharing conversations and experiences while cooking up your dinner or have some fun in the recreation rooms.
Some hostels have saunas, some pool tables, many have guitars, reading rooms but they all have interesting, helpful and friendly staff who share a passion for travel and New Zealand.
