Support YHA's Environmental Commitment


Since 1932 YHA New Zealand has been enabling young people from around the world to travel in an affordable manner. Fulfilling our purpose to create connections and enrich peoples understanding of each other, the environment and New Zealand.

As a not-for-profit we rely on bookings to fulfill our core mission and use donations to commit to our environmental actions. These enable us to remain carbon neutral, support EV charging, minimise our carbon output and support initiatives with Hostelling International.

With borders closed right now our ability to fund our activity is significantly impacted. 

Now, more than ever, we need your help to stay true to our core values of sustainable travel!
