National Hostel Directory

Aboriginal Hostels Limited operates more than 50 hostels Australia-wide to provide accommodation for Indigenous people who need to be away from home for a range of reasons. Our hostels are safe, comfortable, affordable and offer three meals each day during your stay.

Our Accommodation Options

Short-term (multipurpose) hostels

Short-term accommodation in towns and cities for individuals and families waiting for housing, seeking employment or meeting general business and other commitments away from their homes and communities. Many residents in these hostels stay with us until they are able to access long-term accommodation.

Secondary and tertiary education hostels

Accommodation for secondary and tertiary students which is close to educational facilities.

For secondary students this affordable accommodation assists students to attend school and achieve their education goals, including their Year 12 Certificate. Students will enjoy the opportunity to study in a safe, comfortable environment with access to study assistance, sporting facilities and organised outings.

Students may even be eligible for ABSTUDY living away from home allowance to help with the cost of secondary education hostel accommodation. For more information call the ABSTUDY information line on 1800 132 317 (Freecall).

AHL also provides tertiary education accommodation for Indigenous students undertaking higher education and training - opening doors to degrees, diplomas and employment opportunities.
