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

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.

Brilliant location and building, with mountains of atmosphere. Worth the stay just for the building, but a great youth hostel as well. A good variety of room types, a couple of lounges and good self catering kitchen as well as the hostel restaurant.

Spent the weekend again at Whitby YHA for a pre-Christmas party and celebration. We were a party of 10 - 5 adults and 5 under 18s. Like last year, we could not fault the warm, friendly welcome and lovely food. The staff were really keen to make our stay enjoyable and the building was great - double beds and en... More

Beautiful location in the shadow of the haunting abbey. I arrived in complete darkness and when I found my way to the inviting glow of the hostel, I was boyh delighted and relieved. The facilities were great. I stayed in a female dorm which was warm, spotless, and comfortable. I appreciated having a socket in the room where I could... More

Great location if you have a car. Amazing views of Whitby and the Abbey. Our room even had a few of the Abbey. Very friendly helpful staff. Kids playroom is awesome. lovely longue to relax in. Excellent kitchen. Our bed and pillows where a little hard so not such a good nights sleep. But good value for money.
