Nairobi, Kenya, 2011/08/10 - Online information and reservations for youth hostels accommodation in Kenya that are safe, affordable, quality, clean and comfortable for all budget travellers, backpackers, youth hostels, budget accommodation, adventure activities, volunteering.
Kenya Youth Hostels Association is a non-profit Membership organization, organized as a community service with a proud history and a relevant philosophy, which promotes youth hostelling in Kenya and gives the opportunity to young Kenyans to travel around Kenya and abroad, because the membership card of international hostelling is valid worldwide. So if you have this card, you are accepted in all of those eighty countries and all of those youth hostels without any differences. We would like to see more Kenyan people travel around and use the infrastructure, because all countries are very well covered by youth hostels.
Our main task is to promote youth tourism as something which is not only for people who have a lot of money. We are here to help people to travel more easily, quickly, safely and to find people of their age around.
The Association aims at developing a chain of hostels for use by its members, creating networks and affiliation with other hostel owners, collaborating with external hostels, investing in creating youth facilities such as campsites, recruiting more members and enabling its members to be part of the global village so as to enjoy tourist attractions, intercultural experiential living, sharing information and expanding personal horizons in life. The Association therefore promotes personal growth, welfare and domestic as well as international youth tourism.
The guiding dream of the International Youth Hostel Federation is to open the world to the youth. This vision emphasizes care and desire to enable young people to experience the world, its people, plants, animals, culture and to learn, recreate and enjoy life. The Kenya Youth Hostels Association (yhak.org) is thus mandated to provide hostels, which have cheap, cost-effective, clean and quality accommodation and meals.
The Association promotes the appreciation, love and care of the countryside, wildlife, people, landscape and the general environment and provides for sensitization through travel, recreation, pursuit of knowledge and exchange of ideas among members and hostellers with limited means and resources. The Association undertakes to serve all youth and members of all races, color, creed and cultural background.
