Become a member - experience community

When the first youth hostels saw the light of the travel world, one essential idea was in the foreground: Young people should discover the world, regardless of their origin and budget. This approach has lost none of its fascination. But on the contrary, the opportunity of experience community and broaden horizons today thrills people in five continents and especially in Greece.

Uniqueness, sustainability, diversity and cosmopolitanism: these are some of the values ​​that the Greek Youth Hostels Association stands for. These values ​​are our foundation, that which is important to us. It often shows in small things, in the use of sustainable building materials, in the programs for youth groups and families, in the choice of local food or rules for social interaction with each other. 

Say HI to Greece

Our Youth Hostels are open to everyone, with no age limit: individuals and families, group trips or youth groups. For Greek Youth Hostels there is no restriction on "members only".  A membership, however, offers you at least a 10% saving on the cost of your accommodation in Greece and 4.000 unique hostels in 90 countries worldwide. The membership fee is as a donation to a non-profit organisation, therefore every member makes a contribution, preserves and supports the work of International Youth Hostels.
