YHA Whitby is just close to the Abbey. It means that it's on the top of the hill, that everytime you get to the Hostel you have a fantastic view of the ruins... that there are NO buses going up to there and therefore, if you don't have your own car, you will have to use the 199 famous stars...

Brilliant setting right by the dramatic abbey - great views of it from quaint conservatory and garden terrace as well as fab views of Whitby harbour. Some communal rooms have beautiful architecture and are light and airy, plenty of fridge space in the kitchen and rooms clean and functional. Be prepared for a lot of stairs if you have booked...

Wasn't too sure about staying in a youth hostel but with 9 of us travelling just for one night this seemed a good option. I have to say it exceeded my expectations. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms very clean (with en-suite). Hotel had everything we needed including a choice of self catering kitchen or restaurant. We would definitely stay... More

We stayed at YHA Whitby for 2 nights from the 18th of August 2014, from our arrival we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff from the ladies on reception to the staff in the restaurant. The hostel is in a fantastic location on the East Cliff overlooking Whitby and next door to the Abbey, as we stayed at... More

Not my favourite Yha but nevertheless, amazing hostel. Location is perhaps one of the best in Whitby! Right next to the abbey, in a huge house looking out over the town. At the top of the 199 steps, perhaps not ideal for those with limited mobility (or else no access to car, although it looks like a tour bus does... More

Great location with lovely, clean facilities and really friendly staff. Becca was a star sorting out some bedding for us and all the reception team were knowledgable and happy to give recommendations. Highly recommend it any time of the year! We will be back!

Fantastic location on the cliffs next to Whitby Abbey - the views are amazing. One of the nicest Youth Hostels I have stayed at. The hostel is a wonderful old building that has been sympathetically restored and refurbished with lots of discreet information boards to explain the historic features. The sitting room and conservatory add a touch of class to... More

What an amazing location to stay! It is located in a historic house right next door to WhitbyAbbey. It was clean, the rooms were spacious and the staff were friendly and helpful. There is a beautiful herb garden to stroll through and because the hostel is located high on a hill, the garden (and possibly your room) overlooks the town... More

As long as you remember this is a hostel not a hotel you cannot fail to fall in love. Next to the abbey and just the steps to be right in town. The free abbey visit and the cafe in the hostel are the cream on the cake. I will return.

We loved the Whitby YHA! The staff was fantastic, the location was amazing and we got free admission to the Abbey ruins by staying there. I would highly recommend this facility for anyone, but especially those on a budget...you can't beat the price. The grounds are beautiful and makes for a really nice walk. Aside from driving, the only way... More
