FAQs on Youth Hostels

Youth Hostels are as international as their guests. But always shared rooms? No. Always rose hip tea? No. And strict housing regulations? No. But some respect. Yes, please!

Youth Hostels offer shared rooms. But there are also single or double rooms. If these are available, you can sleep alone in a room or share one with your partner, but a surcharge will apply. Families can book family rooms in advance, subject to availability. All Youth Hostels have common rooms, and many also offer function rooms for courses or conferences.
