Travel and score points

Booked a city hostel with the Swiss Youth Hostels app, or perhaps one in the countryside, by the water or in one of ‘our’ castles? You've already earned a badge! When you check in, simply scan the QR code on site and you have got yourself an extra badge! And if you write a community tip afterwards, you'll be one badge richer!

Collecting these and around 60 other badges is simple, all you need is our app and you're in!
