Affiliate Groups

What are Affiliate Groups?

YHA Affiliate Groups – also known as Local Groups – are a way for like-minded people to get together and explore the wonderful network of youth hostels run by YHA in England and Wales, part of the world-wide Hostelling International network. This site has been set up both for people who want to join a group, and for those who run them.

Join a Group

If you're a YHA member and would like to be part of a wider community, YHA Affiliate Groups are for you. There are groups all over the country who are waiting to hear from you! They offer the opportunity to be part of a group of like-minded people who enjoy meeting regularly to share experiences, swap stories and take part in social activities. Browse through the list of affiliated groups below, to find your nearest one.
