Changing lives one stay at a time

Changing lives one stay at a time

Because YHA is a charity, when you stay with us you are helping us keep our prices affordable, maintain our hostels in beautiful locations and give as many young people as possible a chance to enrich their lives. And you have been helping us do this since we started.

We are stronger than ever thanks to the continued support of all the people who stay with us, eat with us, and volunteer or fundraise for us. Thanks to each and every one of you we can carry on putting 100% of everything we earn straight back into YHA and continue to offer everyone the chance to experience what we do.

And we mean everyone.

From ramblers to climbers, from cyclists to mountain bikers, from school trips to family trips, from independent travellers to adrenaline junkies. No matter whether you are looking for a castle or a camping pod, a city break or a countryside retreat, we have a budget friendly, position-perfect home away from home for you

It is thanks to all the people who help and fund the running and upkeep of our accommodation that we are able to enrich the lives of so many young people whatever their background and whatever the challenges they face in their lives. We help and create opportunities for their future. Whether this is through our bursary schemes such as Breaks for Kids, our FAB camps for bereaved families, our partnerships with other charities, our summer camps, our volunteering and work experience. We make a difference to young people’s lives.

So the more that people stay with us the more people we can reach and inspire through the great outdoors in our cities and countryside.

Read all about how we have made a positive difference to the lives of thousands of young people on our Impact pages.

How can you help?
