How to pre-book a youth hostel room ?


When possible, you should book ahead if you want to stay at a Youth Hostel. There are several ways for you to book a room :

  • Directly with the Youth Hostel of your choice (either by Email, mail, phone or fax)
  • On the L.F.A.J. Website or using the prebooking form of the Youth Hostel you are interested in 

To book a room, first choose your destination, and then fill in the prebooking form that you will find on each Youth Hostel presentation Web page. We will then get in touch with you as soon as we have checked if there is a vacant room for the period you selected.

In order to confirm your booking, some Youth Hostels might ask you for a deposit, the balance being paid during your stay.

When possible, please confirm your booking by Email, fax, or phone, 15 days at least before the date of arrival for groups and 2 days for individuals. Be careful, without any news from you, the Youth Hostel might not take your booking into account.

Any reduction of over 10% of the number of travellers for groups must be confirmed 10 days before arrival to be taken into account. Otherwise, you will be invoiced according to the reservation you previously made.

Any increase in the number of travellers must receive prior acceptance from the Youth Hostel before arrival. Otherwise, the Youth Hostel shall only accept visitors for the exact number of beds previously booked or - if possible - available.

Please note that you will be held responsible for damages to your room. The costs will be invoiced to you at the end of your stay.

Prices do not include the visitor's tax, collected by the local authorities and paid when leaving the Youth Hostel.

In order to book a room in a Youth Hostel, a membership card is required.


If you ever need to make a complaint about your stay in one of our Youth Hostels, you must send us a written complaint (by registered mail). Please be sure to include your name, current address and phone number or Email, within 20 days after your stay, at the following address:
