STAY WYSE is committed to understanding the ever changing characteristics, motivations, and needs of young travellers.

STAY WYSE gathers, analyses and shares important research data and market intelligence with their members, academics, corporate and government decisions-makers, and the general travelling public.

Our investment in research and market intelligence informs the policies, services and products which make international travel and educational experiences exciting, safe, accessible and affordable for young people.

The aims of the research are to:

  • Collect data for the purpose of identifying trends and making relative comparisons
  • Provide guidance to hostels and other youth travel accommodation providers in assessing their business performance, cost effectiveness, revenues and expenses relative to the industry standard
  • Enable hostels and other youth travel accommodation operators to benchmark their business characteristics in order to develop strategic concepts and optimise business outcomes
  • Help accommodation providers develop business plans and help guide investment decisions
  • Provide research to underpin the representation of the sector within international tourism policy with governments and cities around the world.



WYSE Travel Confederation would like to thank Freehand, Meininger Hotels, and Sleeptite for sponsoring the STAY WYSE research programme.
