YHA (England & Wales)

We transform young lives forever through travel and real adventure. We operate a network of more than 150 youth hostels, bunkhouses and camping barns across England and Wales.


We are YHA We transform young lives forever through travel and real adventure You may not know it but, when you choose YHA for accommodation on your adventures, you’re helping us change young lives for the better, forever. Every penny we make is used to improve access to travel and real adventure for all young people. So when you stay with us, you’re contributing to opening up a world of possibilities to young people, many of whom just wouldn’t be able to take a break without us. Whether on family holidays, group trips or school residentials, the children and young people that stay with us get the chance to explore England & Wales, meet new friends, try different activities and grow through experiences of adventure and discovery. Because we’re a charity, we invest all the money we make into creating opportunities for people from all backgrounds to experience amazing places, share extraordinary journeys and discover a different path through life. And thanks to our customers, members, donors and volunteers, we’re able to intensively support opportunities for young people facing poverty, disability, long-term illness and other challenging circumstances that mean they would otherwise miss out. Together we’re creating the transformational moments that matter in young people’s lives. We are YHA. Because where you go changes who you become.
