+1 Permission to add something to a map is certainly not the same as permission to release information under the ODBL, we need that explicitly stated.
Also, how are you going to locate the hostels? I'm assuming you're armchair mapping, so how can you tell whether (or which) hostel mapped in OSM is the relevant YHA one? Any information derived from the Google maps on the YHA site is strictly unuseable, even with YHA's permission.
