Very good idea ! Please make it possible to choose french language and to make the install on the additional card of the smart phone.

Hi Peter,

Many thanks for your comment and good choice … I’ll forward it to our developers for something to look at in the near future!

Cheers … Steve


I tried downloading it on playstore and from the link above and both said that no item was found. Is the app still available?

Hi Sam,

I’m afraid that we no longer have this app as we have a new website which enables mobile bookings:

Thank you.

I am looking for the Hostelling International app for Android. I cannot find it anywhere I look. I am just getting info., for other apps. Is it possible to send me the correct link to download the correct H.I. App. Thank you in advance.


do you have an app for iphone or android phone???

So sorry for the delayed response. We do not have an app, however we will soon be integrated with Apple Wallet and Android Passbook.
