The Youth Hostels Association (YHA) England and Wales is a charitable organisation that operates a network of 200 youth hostels, bunkhouses and camping barns in rural, coastal, and city locations throughout England and Wales.
The charity welcomes individual travellers, families, schools, and youth groups. They are supported by more than 3000 active volunteers.
The YHA mission is:
"To help all, especially young people of limited means, to a greater knowledge, love and care of the countryside, and appreciation of the cultural values of towns and cities, particularly by providing youth hostels or other accommodation for them in their travels, and thus to promote their health, recreation and education.”
