You don’t pay any booking fees. We give you first hand notice on special offers and actions if you sign up for one of our newsletters or follow us in SoMe.

These reductions you can also enjoy with your Norwegian membership, if you’re travelling to these countries!


  • The price of the membership varies according to where you live in the world. All members should be members in their own national organization. It is also possible to become a member directly with Hostelling Internation and not a national organization. In Norway our membership costs 150 NOK and is valid 12 month from the date you activate your membership.
  • Book your stay through or contact the hostel directly by phone or email.
  • To be able to get the full membership discount, all the guests have to have a membership. Children younger than 16 years don't need a membership of their own travelling with adults.
  • Your HI membership is valid in all the countries with HI hostels all over the world.
