Why choose a YHA property?
YHA Australia is a membership-based, not for profit association.
In Germany in 1909, school-teacher Richard Schirrmann had the idea to create a network of budget accommodation options across the country to be used by school groups. The first permanent youth hostel, Altena Castle, was established in Germany in 1912 and still operates today. The YHA movement has over 60,000 members in Australia and hosts more than 1.5 million overnight stays annually.
