Membership Terms 097042

This membership is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. By purchasing this membership you become a member of HI Norway and Hostelling International. As a member, you accept that HI Norway will be able to contact you to communicate fresh news and good offers.  
To prove that you are a member, you must be able to show a valid membership card either on paper or on mobile. Membership is mandatory to stay in certain hostels of the HI network, not in others where you get a discount on accommodation instead. Check this with the respective hostel before you travel. 


HI Norway Membership 
When you register as a member of Hostelling International Norway, your information is entered in our member register. You can be contacted by us at the email address you have provided. Your information will remain for three years with an unpaid membership fee before it is removed, but if you actively opt out, the information will be removed immediately. 

Our membership lists are confidential and are not shared with others. We also will not share your personal details with other organisations. Only selected employees at the national office have access to the member database. Our internal routines are in line with the Privacy Act and the GDPR rules that came into force in May 2018. 

If you have questions, want access to your personal information, or want to unsubscribe, you can send an email to 


HI's role is to help you find the right place for accommodation, and at the same time help you, you and the hostel you have chosen, to set the legal framework for the accommodation. If you choose to book through us, the contract is between you and the hostel you chose, not with HI or HI Norway.
