Discount Cards

A Hostelling International (HI) card yields a token discount in some hostels (but note that an HI card is normally not necessary for staying in most private hostels). You can become a member by joining your own country's Youth Hostel Association (YHA) or IYHF (International Youth Hostel Federation); see for details.

Holders of an International Student Identity Card (ISIC) are privy to many discounts in Romania. A full list (in Romanian) of ISIC discounts as well as many helpful hints for student travellers in Romania can be found at the local ISIC website
