Established in 1931, SYHA Hostelling Scotland is a self-funding charity operating a network of over 60 exceptional youth and affiliate hostels for the benefit of all those wishing to learn and experience what Scotland has to offer. Our unique sites provide affordable, comfortable, safe and quality-assured accommodation with a warm friendly welcome, local knowledge, activities and services for guests travelling around Scotland.
As a not for profit organisation we encourage guests to join SYHA Hostelling Scotland. Members enjoy a range of exclusive benefits including dual membership of Hostelling International, providing access to more than 4,000 youth hostels in 90 countries worldwide.
As a charity we rely on our members and guests to ensure the continuation of Hostelling in Scotland, supporting our charitable youth programmes with SYHA Youth Active Grants and the maintenance of the hostelling network, including remote locations that would not be considered viable by independent operators. As a not-for-profit organisation all income generated from our activities and services is invested back into the hostelling network.
