Just stayed here while visiting Whitby for this years Versys owners meeting. It really is a clean, well ran, charming YHA in an excellent location. The famous Whitby Abbey is next door - and you get free entry when you're a resident of the YHA. The building is excellent, and almost as gothic as the Abbey. It's set just above... More

Spend two nights at YHA Whitby with an U14 Rugby party of lads and dads in May 2015. Fantastic location next to the abbey, very clean and great friendly, helpful staff. Sarah & Danielle run a great team. Thank you YHA Whitby!

Lovely building and a fabulous location. We had a 4 x bed en suite room; 2 x sets of bunks. Very comfortable mattress, individual socket, light and mini shelf at each bed. Plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. Loads of powerful hot water in the shower. Arrive early to get parked at the hostel. I had to drop friends off... More

this hostel is really excellent, not just because it's so well looked after, but because the staff make it that way. We had a wonderful few nights touring the area. Eating at the hostel is good, the food was well portioned, fresh and tasted right. We done staff! And thank you

This is the first time we've stayed at a youth hostel as a family and, with four young children, I wasn't sure whether it would work or not. It did. Brilliant place to stay, fab views and location and the children are well catered for with plenty of outside space to run around and a childrens playroom for the younger... More

This is the first time we have stayed (as a family) in a youth hostel and we were expecting basic and very ordinary accommodation. This was not the case. The location is stunning, we had wonderful views of the harbor from our room and the Abbey was right next door. The room (no. 17) was spacious, clean and had a... More

Brilliant hostel there can't be many hostels in better locations, would have no hesitation in coming back when in Whitby. Plenty of things to do locally. We stayed in Room 11, double bed and set of bunks, great for a family.

Booked a 4 person family room last minute. Was a little dubious having never stayed in a youth hostel but was very pleasantly surprised. Really clean, comfortable beds, lovely friendly and helpful staff and really great facilities (including private on-suite with a fab shower) in a perfect location. All at a very reasonable price. Would definitely stay here again and... More

stayed here a few months ago in room 19, a dormitory. Every thing was excellent. Great views and location. Would recommend. The building is part of the Abbey and free entrance to the Abbey is included.

The hotel rooms were not advertised on the web as they should have been, we were tricked by the way they were advertised no bit of detail about the place and that it was a hostel with bunk beds and may have had other people in the same room. So we had to leave after we paid and we didnt... More
