Nothing beats heading out on an epic travel adventure with just a few of your belongings in a backpack and a bucket list of places to see and things to do. The whole point of travel is getting out and experiencing the world, so the last thing you want is to spend your money on pricey accommodation.

That's where hostels come in handy: They're everywhere; they fit your budget; and they're full of people like you who have their priorities straight when it comes to exploring this fine planet of ours.

Hostelling International has 4,000 hostels in 90 countries with many sleeping options ranging from dorm rooms to private rooms with ensuites, plus kitchen facilities and plenty of common areas for meeting people. They're staffed by people who know and love the area and really want to share it with you. They'll dish up tons of helpful travel advice from the front desk, or even take you on trips and activities nearby. That's what hostelling is all about.

A HI-Membership gets you a minimum 10% discount at every HI hostel, plus savings on all kinds of extra things like bus trips, food, gear and activities worldwide.

What membership is right for you?

You can either order online or pick a HI membership up in person. You can buy in person at all HI Hostels, Merit Travel, MEC, and select Greyhounds. We have an easy tool for you to find your nearest location.
