Gap Year Frosh Week

Get 20% off your HI Membership Card

Welcome Frosh Weekers! HI Canada is a proud supporter of gap years and we'd like to offer you 20% off an HI Canada membership, which unlocks discounts at HI hostels and related businesses around the globe.

If you were planning an epic gap year abroad this year, you can still get your adventure fix right here in Canada. With an HI membership, you can explore Canada's 50+ HI hostels—in places like Whistler, Banff, Jasper, Montreal and Ottawa—and get a taste of what backpacking adventures abroad might be like once international travel resumes. Hostels are the best option for affordable, social(ly distant), independent travel all over the world, including right here in Canada. Explore our hostels below and learn more about our safety protocols.

To save 20% on your one-year HI membership card, you simply need to use the discount code cangap20.
