A long experience

Our organisation AJ17 celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2024 ! Far from trends, we have been able to adapt our values of hospitality and inclusion over the years, but also modernize our hostels and our services !



The four youth hostels are grouped together within AJ17, a non-profit-making organisation (when thinking about it, it changes everything !). AJ17 is part of the United Federation of Youth Hostels (FUAJ - HI France).


Our values

Solidarity, diversity, fight against all forms of hate, autonomy, interculturality, eco-citizenship… These values have an important place in our organization.
