Millennials, Here’s How A Youth Hostel Membership Can Help You Travel The World


More and more millennials are now adapting the hostel lifestyle when it comes to travel. The trend is on the rise as the youth now wants to stay on the roads longer and engage with new people, while keeping the budgets light. And on the plus side, the social experience that a hostel stay offers is unmatched.

And that’s why, Youth Hostel Association of India has become one of the most popular choice of the hostel-goers for its numerous benefits and its association with the International Youth Hostels which has a widespread network in 90 countries.

What is YHAI?

The YHAI membership has proved beneficial for the travellers as you can not only avail the facility to stay at any of their partner hostels in more than 150 locations of India but also in any of the 4000+ hostels that are connected with the International Youth Hostel Federation.

Besides providing budgeted stay options, YHAI also works on the cause of promoting environment awareness and also regularly conducts activities like Trekking, Camping, Mountaineering, Sailing and more.

They are organising many activities currently for the adventure seekers like Himalayan Expedition to Leh on bikes, Himalayan trekking cum training expedition to Hampta Pass & Chandertal , Biking cum Training expedition in Goa – their website lists all the ongoing activities that you can participate in.

The Membership

If you aren’t yet a member, then you can visit their official website and apply for the membership that starts at Rs 100 for youth between 10-18 years and Rs 250 for adults. The lifetime membership is available at only INR 2700.

The membership can also be availed through counters at their National Office, Delhi and through post.

They YHAI-IYTC co-branded membership that is endorsed by UNESCO is available at just Rs 500 for 1 year, however, it has an upper age limit of 30 years.

So, with so many benefits, fun activities that you can be a part of and a chance to connect with like-minded travelers, we think that YHAI has served as a boon for the frequent travelers and if you plan to be on the road for long, you shouldn’t miss out on being their member.
