About us

YHA is a charity that transforms young lives forever through travel and real adventure.

We provide amazing places to stay and unique opportunities to explore. We fund stays for families and young people facing adversity so that everyone has the change to gain new confidence, new skills and a new perspective on the world.

Every time you stay at one of our YHA Exclusive Hire properties, you’re contributing to our work as a youth charity. That’s because the income we generate is reinvested back into our network and programmes, enabling us to achieve greater reach and impact on young people with challenging lives.

YHA Exclusive Hire offers a wide range of holiday cottages, lodges, log cabins, mansions and unusual places to stay so you can plan that group getaway and enjoy the whole hostel for yourself. Suitable for families, for friends, for running clubs, for walking groups, for hens, for stags and everything in between, there are properties in stunning locations across England and Wales.
