I was wondering what are the Youth Hostel associations that I should join so I can use their beds when I travel round Europe?
Here are the main countries I will be visiting:
How do hostels operate in Europe?
Will my YHA card work there?
In the UK if you do not have a YHA card you cannot use the hostel to sleep in.
What cards do I need to get to use Hostels in Europe?
Is there any discounts or promotional cards I can get that will reduce my costs?
Note: I have only had experience of Youth Hostels when I was a kid travelling in the UK so things might have changed since then.
