A non-profit membership organization which offers travelers quality budget accommodation and other perks such as discounted trips, reduced admission prices to attractions such as museums and reductions in a range of travel services worldwide, Hostelling International (HI) is the brand name of the International Youth Hostel Federation (IYHF).
Synonymous around the world with a blue triangle sign, HI’s members include Youth Hostel Associations (YHA), which boast good quality budget accommodation located in over 90 countries and more than 4,300 locations.
Hostels were created to help young people of limited means experience the world more effectively, but today, these humble temporary homes have become an important part of international tourism. Today’s hostellers are generally of all ages and of differing nationalities, cultures and social background. Through HI, they are able to meet, share experiences, learn about each other and engage in cross-cultural activities. All of which through affordably priced Hostels which assure friendliness, safety, comfort, security and privacy.
To enjoy staying in HI Youth Hostels, sign up for a HI Membership Card, and receive instant access to the entire network of over 4,300 hostels around the world. Simply produce your NRIC or Passport information, make a payment of SGD22 for a National Card or SGD31 for an International Card. Your HI Membership is valid for a year from the date of issue.
