Youth Hostels

Youth Hostelling – YHA

For young people, Youth Hostels are a great way to get out and explore the UK without a huge cost.

The YHA aims to reach out and enhance the lives of all young people. They operate a network of more than 200 Youth Hostels, bunkhouses and camping barns across England and Wales. They’re also part of an international network of Youth Hostels in 60 countries around the world.

The first Youth Hostel was started 100 years ago and since then the idea has spread right around the world.

Through YHA, people are able to explore new places, to understand different cultures: an experience which encourages and enhances the growth of all.

YHA accommodation has changed considerably over the years, it is usually in comfortable bunk-bedded rooms, sharing with people of the same sex and most locations offer smaller private rooms for couples and families, sometimes with en-suite facilities.

Laundered bed linen, pillows, duvet and blankets are provided free of charge for you to make up your bed.

YHA offers full meals service at many of our properties. Some locations also have self-catering kitchens which are fully equipped with all you’ll need to do your own cooking. Facilities vary between locations, but most will also have a sitting area, drying room and cycle store.
