hi, It's coming down to the zero hour on my trip and like always I procrastinate on things... I was wondering if I should get an HI (hosteling international) card or not.. I have a book with hostels in it and alot of the hostels require that you be an HI member... would you sugest that I get one... or is it unneccesary. thanx

I had a YHA Card and found it a waste of money... the times I did stay in a YHA hostel I hated it... full of either school groups or really really weird old people who talked about being left in "Hitler's Germany" as a child... All of the best hostels I found did not require a membership card.

Where are you planning to go? Our HI membership saved us big bucks in Sweden, but we bought it in Lithuania, cheapest place on earth, apparently. You might check and by your membership in one of the places you're travelling to, it might be cheaper (as in our case).
