I don’t live in Pakistan, can I still become a member?

If you live outside Pakistan, you will not be eligible to purchase a PYHA membership. We suggest that you buy Hostelling International membership, which is recognized in over 4000 hostels worldwide here, or buy membership in your home country before you travel.

How long will it be before I receive my membership card?

You should receive your PYHA membership card within 3-7 working days depending on the shipping time.

I am travelling with a few friends, do we all need to have PYHA membership to book rooms with PYHA member rates?

If you and your friends are booking into Dorm Rooms then yes, all of you will need to have valid PYHA membership to take advantage of member rates. Remember, each of you will be asked to present your membership card at check-in so don’t forget to pack it!

If you are booking a Executive/Family Room then no, this room is paid for as a whole and as such only one PYHA membership is required.
