Having not stayed in a YHA for many years we were intrigued to see how they have changed. At Malham the rooms are excellent with en-suite facilities and comfortable beds. Food, and even alcoholic beverages are available at reasonable rates. At £30 each for b&b we were well pleased. Friendly staff got us registered, and checked out, quickly and efficiently... More

I really want to stay here next time I come down my Stairway from Heaven but Hello is it me you're looking for? Will you still love me forever on the dark desert Highway or do I need to leave like a Bat?

A rather ugly building in a beautiful village, but the hostel is staffed by great people; friendly and flexible. Used largely by cyclists and walkers, breakfast can be provided, but there are 2 big, well equipped kitchens, dining areas and sitting rooms, so there is enough space to do your own thing, as well as the cafes/restaurants in Malham. (The... More

Who knew YHA was so good! Clean, the location is amazing the team so friendly, they couldn't do enough for us. An affordable way to see the world and although basic, definitely not roughing it. Thanks all I will be telling everyone they have to try it.

Hot showers, warm and clean rooms and a clean shared kitchen. i stayed in a double room with my friend instead of shared dorms, only issue is the floors are quite... More

I recently stayed at Malham hostel with my walking group for a weekend away. The hostel was small but modern and thankfully warm (unlike some hostels I have stayed in). I couldn't fault the staff, who were friendly and patient throughout our visit despite some rather difficult members of our group. Keith was particularly friendly and helpful. The rooms were...

We visited for the first time. When reception opened we were greeted by the lovely Gaz, who made us feel right at home. We had booked a private room which was ensuite and had good disabled access (room3).and was clean, warm and cosy. We used the self catering kitchen which was spotless. We had a laugh playing board games till... More

Great for the Dales walks and the three peaks in a stunning location and quaint village. Because the Hostel has had a recent upgrade it has fantastic and clean accommodation, great staff, very obliging manager, will definitely use again.

We spent 2 nights here on a mini-break treat so we could go walking in Malhamdale. The rooms are clean and, although not as fancy as some of the more dramatic hostels in castles, were comfortable. The 460k restoration has resulted in great showers, a really well equipped self-catering kitchen with lovely views, and nice bright colours on the walls.... More
