Hostelling International Card

The membership card, “Hostelling International”, gives you access to the youth hostels worldwide. Being a member means much more than just being a “Hostelling International” cardholder.

  • You will be member of one of the largest non-profit organizations in the world, which is committed to promote youth tourism, international understanding, tolerance and environmental protection.
  • With your membership you are contributing to the constant maintenance, improvement and expansion of the youth hostels network.

Say goodbye to physical cards and hello to convenience! With our digital card, you can access your membership easily via your smartphone, saving paper and helping us to reduce printing and mailing costs.

The membership card will only be sent to you by email, which you can save in your smartphone wallet and/or the Stocard app. It is therefore important that we have your correct email address, otherwise you will not receive a card.

But that's not all! We're making it easier than ever to pay. You can now pay online and at renewal by credit card and with the Payconiq app.

Other ways to get your card

You can also buy the membership card directly on site at the youth hostel of your choice.

Attention: However, to become a member of the Luxembourg Youth Hostel Association, you must be resident in Luxembourg. If you are not resident in Luxembourg, please contact your national association.


Extended membership - 'associé'

Would you like to actively support the youth hostels and become part of the youth hostel family? Would you also like to vote annually and support the board? Then get in touch with us and apply for an extended membership. Because the Association of Luxembourg Youth Hostels is not only made up of the classic memberships. All those who wish to actively support the values and principles of the association can also apply for a delegate membership ('associé'). As a delegate you have the right to vote at our annual general meeting. To apply for extended membership, regular membership is required (Hostelling International membership card - form at the top of this page).
