Stayed in room 11, from which I had a perfect view of the abbey lit at night. Gained a free ticket to the abbey just by staying at the hostel. Very friendly staff. Nice tearooms. Lovely conservatory and gardens. Slept well in ready made double bed in my en suite room. Onsite parking. Allgood.

We've stayed here 3 times as a family with 2 children (10 and 5 yrs) and it is perfect. The games room and outside play area are a real hit with children. The hostel is perfectly positioned for walking into Whitby itself as long as you can manage the 199 steps : ) As a guest at the hostel you... More

I stayed at the yha in Whitby on Saturday night after completing the c2c in a day cycle ride, I was with 4 friends, the room we had was very clean, spacious and had a great shower and comfortable beds, just what the doctor ordered after 150 miles in the saddle, the staff were very helpful and the breakfast was...

Yes, I think I can definitely claim that it's the best hostel I've ever stayed in. I had never felt that safe and at home. The location could not be better, absolutely perfect (even the view from the toilets was beautiful, I'm not even joking - here's a photo as a proof ;)) The staff was really helpful and patient...

Wonderful YHA property, great location. Fine views. Friendly, helpful staff. Rooms were very clean. Good self catering facilities. Amazing walk down 199 steps in Whitby. Stayed Sunday and got a very good deal. Very peaceful and quiet. Free passes into the Abbey for all guests (entrance costs £6.80). Free parking. Meals taken in the Abbey tea rooms, wonderful views. Beautiful... More

The location of this hostel is unbeatable, perched up on top of a hill next to Whitby Abbey and overlooking the sea. The building is steeped in history with some lovely features although it has been used as a institutional building for many years and has suffered a bit as a result. The inside isn't brilliant and is definitely a... More

The best part of this hostel is the views. Both of the Abbey and over Whitby. Its quite strange driving thru the tourist attraction to the hostel. The building is lovely, with a nice conservatory connected to a large lounge. There is also a good self catering kitchen with large dining area. The staff were all very friendly and up... More

An excellent example of a YHA property, an incredible location right next to Whitby Abbey which the kids absolutely loved. A nice-ish walk into the town though it's challenging on the way back with 199 steps to climb. The accommodation was excellent, the breakfast was excellent, the staff were very helpful and friendly. Looking forward to a return visit as... More

Just stayed here while visiting Whitby for this years Versys owners meeting. It really is a clean, well ran, charming YHA in an excellent location. The famous Whitby Abbey is next door - and you get free entry when you're a resident of the YHA. The building is excellent, and almost as gothic as the Abbey. It's set just above... More

Spend two nights at YHA Whitby with an U14 Rugby party of lads and dads in May 2015. Fantastic location next to the abbey, very clean and great friendly, helpful staff. Sarah & Danielle run a great team. Thank you YHA Whitby!
