The location and building themselves would warrant a 5 star hotel berth...but the kids wouldn't be allowed to run about with such freedom if that was the case. We go YHA all the time; there are some superb places but Abbey House has to be one of the best...Our 25 quid yearly membership is well worth it when you consider... More

First of all, could have done with better signs once we arrived at the Abbey roundabout - really weren't sure if we should be driving down where we did to get to the YHA. And don't turn up before the prescribed time as you will not be let in - or even answered. Room had double bunk beds and no... More

Special menu was available which was well presented and delightful loads of stuff for kids to do. Rooms were clean and communal areas ready for use. Great base for exploring Whitby With or without the kids!

Really friendly staff, very clean rooms, very comfy beds. We felt like we were in someone's living room when in the lounge, which was really great and homely. Big dorms, lots of space. Great prices and not strict. Really close to the town, 5 Minutes walk. Beautiful surroundings. Good parking, free WiFi. Provides bedding. Didn't try the food so couldn't... More

Hubby was away for the weekend so I wanted something to do with the kids that wasn't too expensive or stressful and this was perfect. As it was me and my 2 sons our options were limited to the family rooms and this was perfect for us. We had room 5 which looked out onto a lovely garden and over... More

Stayed Monday to Friday and enjoyed the accommodation and very helpful staff. Food was very good and plenty of it as well. Great views over Whitby, just 199 steps to the nearest pub, could recommend the Duke of York and the Board Inn. All made for a great break.

We, a group of five friends, stayed at Whitby YHA for a pre-Christmas walking break. The hostel staff were very friendly and helpful. One of our party celebrated a birthday and was given a collection of cakes, curtesy of the hostel. A very thoughtful touch! The room was spacious, clean and had a lovely view of the Abbey. The hostel... More

Stayed here for two nights in early Jan. The hostel was brilliant. A lovely welcome from Sarah on reception who checked me in, gave me the WiFi code and directions to my room. Private room just for me with an amazing view of the Abbey next door, full en-suite (with the best shower ever!). The evenings meals - cooked by... More

We have just returned from staying for New Year - had a fantastic time - the staff really pushed the boat out to add some sparkle - great New Year's Eve buffet and quiz - thanks again for all your hard work. Is a great hostel with great views and location.
