Couldn't quite believe my luck that the YHA is RIGHT next door to the Abbey at the top of the hill. The location is superb. The hostel is clean and well organised. It has lovely gardens and has a very relaxed homely feel. You even get complimentary entry to Whitby Abbey as you are staying at the YHA. We booked... More

We were lucky enough to stay one Sunday night with 2 small boys and were roomed in an 8 bed dorm. The én suite shower and toilet rooms were perfect and all beds had individual reading lights with spotlessly clean room and facilities. Staff were really helpful and friendly, shared facilities of kitchen and lounge were fully equipped and comfortable... More

We arrived in the dark which is probably the best way to approach this place - nestled right next to the ruined Abbey, it looks amazing by night. The staff were wonderful - welcoming, funny and helpful, and the room was warm, clean and comfortable with a good shower room and separate loo room ensuite. The building has areas that... More

A hostel with a fantastic location, that can't be bettered in Whitby. We stayed here for a night on a family trip to Whitby. The initial greeting at reception was friendly, helpful and all that I'd expect from the YHA. The building is a beautiful old building with plenty of history, so you have to accept that it creaks and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with my sister. We were in a 8 bed dorm with three other ladies. The dorm was nice and clean with fresh bedding. The ensuite bathroom wasn't brilliant, when anyone showered a largeish puddle emerged that would last for a few hours but other then that it was fine! Situated right next to the abbey... More

I stayed at the Abbey for 2 nights. The staff were thorough, really helpful and friendly. Room 12 was warm with views out to the morning sunrise. It was a 4 bed dorm with only myself occupying the room. The lower bunk-bed was particularly comfortable, with a clean sheets and duvets and covers, all nicely pressed. The shower was powerful...

The building is very old and beautiful with a... More

Stayed at Whitby YHA on their Christmas Party package - full Christmas dinner and overnight stay for £28.95pp. It was absolutely brilliant - the staff could not have been friendlier and more helpful and the food was excellent. Yorkshire hospitality at its best. The hostel is right next to the Abbey and is really old, in a fantastic setting, warm... More
