Hey all!, I've been looking at the different discount hostel cards for Australia and i'm not sure which one to get, they all save you a dollar off every time you use the card in a hostel that excepts it, but i'm not sure which card is the most widely used in oz, the choices are

Nomads card
YHA card
VIP card

I'm looking to get mine within the next few days so anyone with experience with any of these cards please point me in the right direction!!

Thanks Kel

I got the YHA card and it was pretty worthwhile for checking into YHA hostels (which are really quite nice in Oz) and other discounts here and there. They weren't sizeable, but if you're spending at least a month there, it's worth the $35 or so. You also get a $5 phonecard with it, as well as a halfway decent guide to various locales to claim your discount.

Thanks Omi i ended up getting the YHA card it only cost £15.95 and i got the free £5 phone card.......i figure save a dollar a night in hostels adds up to $90 should i use it the whole time i'm there.........sounds like more beer coupons to me!
