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

I stayed here a couple of times in the last month and I have to say that it's one of the better Youth Hostels that I've visited. The location is superb and even though it's an old house, that doesn't mean the interior is falling down. I stayed here midweek in Spring on a walking trip so I imagine it's... More

We booked this late and so glad we did. £79 for a dorm to ourselves (6 family members) so where can you find cheaper than that in Whitby? Room was very clean with 3 sets of bunkbeds that were sturdy, comfortable and ideal for our needs. Staff were brilliant at check in and we were in the room within minutes.... More

Stayed here with a group of A level Geography students for their field trip. Very pleasantly surprised at the standard of accommodation and food. Rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Meals excellent, plenty of choice for breakfast and fast service. Evening meals also had a choice including a veggie option for fussy teenagers! Staff very helpful and excellent value... More
