Who We Are

Kenya Youth Hostels Association Is a Non Profit Membership organization, organized as a community service with a proud history and a relevant philosophy. It promotes youth travel and hostelling in Kenya. YHA provides an opportunity for young Kenyans to travel cheaply in Kenya and abroad, because the membership card of international hostelling is valid worldwide. So if you have this card, you are accepted in all of those eighty countries and all of those youth hostels without any differences. We would like to see more Kenyan people travel around and use the infrastructure, because all countries are very well covered by youth hostels.

Our main task is to promote youth travel and tourism as something which is not only for people who have a lot of money but for budget travellers. We are here to help people to travel on a lean budget more cheaply, easily, quickly, safely and to find people of their age around recreate, adventure and possibly volunteer.

 Our Objective.

The Association aims at developing a chain of budget accommodation in youth hostels and camping sites for use by its members, creating networks and affiliation with other hostel owners, collaborating with external hostels and camps, investing in creating youth budget accommodation facilities such as safari campsites, recruiting more members and enabling its members to be part of the global village so as to enjoy tourist attractions, intercultural experiential living, sharing information, volunteering and expanding personal horizons in life. The Association therefore promotes personal growth, welfare and domestic as well as international youth tourism.

 Our Vision

The guiding dream of the International Youth Hostel Federation is to open the world to the youth. This vision emphasizes care and desire to enable young people to experience the world, its people, plants, animals, culture and to learn, recreate and enjoy life. The Kenya Youth Hostels Association is thus mandated to provide budget accommodation in youth hostels and camping sites, which are cheap, clean, good value, good quality accommodation for budget travel and travel activities.

Our Mission

The Association promotes the appreciation, love and care of the countryside, wildlife, people, landscape and the general environment and provides for sensitization through adventure travel, recreation, pursuit of knowledge and exchange of ideas among members as they engage in volunteering activities and hostellers with limited means and resources. The Association undertakes to serve all youth and members of all races, colour, creed, political opinions and cultural background.
