STAY WYSE is the only not-for-profit industry association to represent the entire global youth travel accommodation sector. By bringing together the diverse segments of this significant $6 billion/year industry, STAY WYSE provides much needed support and representation for one of the travel industry’s fastest growing niche markets.
“STAY WYSE creates a much needed platform for hostels to connect with each other, develop the hostel product and represent the hostel sector in the travel trade. We at Generator Hostels are excited about these opportunities and confident that STAY WYSE will help to make all youth travel companies even safer, better informed and well connected”.
Eric van Dijk, Managing Director, Generator Hostels, Germany
The Association’s mission is to provide safe, affordable and clean accommodation within a communal atmosphere that encourages youth mobility and cultural understanding.
In October 2007, STAY WYSE was officially approved as a sector association of the World Youth, Student and Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation, a not-for-profit organisation that represents the global community of youth travel, student travel, cultural exchange and international education specialists.
