We are YHA
We believe in the power of travel and adventure. To connect people to each other, to nature and the outdoors, to culture and to heritage.
Hostelling makes travel and adventure accessible to everyone, everywhere. YHA operates over 150 sites throughout England and Wales — a community of shared spaces, open to all and for the benefit of everybody.
We provide inclusive adventures, in extraordinary buildings, in amazing places. We’re proud to rank first globally for guest satisfaction. Yet we are much more than accommodation.
We are a leading social enterprise and a 90-year-old movement. A charity on a mission to enrich the lives of all, but especially young people, and improve physical health, mental wellbeing and life skills through the experiences we create.
We bring the adventure, for the first time, for a lifetime. By staying with us, becoming a member, donating to or volunteering with YHA, not only will you feel the benefit, but you will help us continue to reach those who’d miss out without us.
Our vision: Everyone has access to the benefits of adventure, for the first time and a lifetime.
Our mission: To enrich the lives of all, especially young people, by providing brilliant hostel stays and experiences that improve physical health, mental wellbeing and life skills.
