Lovely listed property in great location - walk in to town and get the bus (No 18 back). Also very convenient for the wonderful Skyline Walk (starts just down the hill - allow three hours). Stayed in the ensuite room for three (one double with single over). And now the feedback - 1. Room not as clean as it should... More

YHA Bath is in a Victorian Italianate mansion on the hill above the city of Bath. The building is beautiful and it has been recently renovated. I stayed in a dorm for a very reasonable price. The cooking area and main floor WiFi access all worked well. I found the staff to be friendly and they ‘went the extra mile’... More

When we arrived in Bath to our surprised it was at the top of the hill leading in to Bath, luckily we had noticed it on the drive in. The hostel is at the top of a steep drive with no Parking, this made it quite difficult to find a space on the road. There is a bus stop outside... More

I was sceptical that yha was able to meet the needs of a family, i.e. cleanliness and security. Turns out i was right to be. No ensuite, just a dorm with a vomit stain and mouldy rotten windows. There was also a block of broken lockers, some of which didn't even have doors. The floors were dirty and for £100... More

I have been staying quite frequently at the Bath YH because I am working in the area. I have chosen to stay in a male dormitory. The hostel is a beautiful Georgian building. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The dormitories are large bedrooms containing three or four pairs of bunkbeds. I have always found these comfortable and slept... More

This was my first experience of staying in a Youth Hostel, and I was quite sceptical before my stay. I have to say that I was hugely impressed by YHA Bath (England), the staff, facilities, location and even breakfast was to a really good standard. The YHA Bath is located around a 20 minute walk into the city centre of... More

Beware of the hill! And by hill, I mean mountain! It was not pleasant walking up to and from the hostel each day, especially with our heavy backpacks on! Unfortunately, we discovered there was a hostel much closer to the city centre that would have been much more convenient. Great view from the top, though! While the exterior looks grand,... More

I didn't like it that much. It is far away from the city centre so you probably need to buy bus tickets. Also, when i stayed there, only one key per room (with 10 people in the room) was available , that means we had to knock the door when coming back to the room. Not too much at night,... More

The hostel is lovely building in a really nice location. About 10 min walk to the centre of Bath. The hostel has all the facilities you need, a decent kitchen, dining area, lounge and secure bike shed. The only thing lacking is a car park, which is not a major issue because you can use Bathwick Hill (if you are... More

Hi, I am in fact a neighbour of the YHA. Very confusing trying to find the right driveway, although there is a YHA sign outside, but look for lamp post number 30 (this is by 2 very handy bus (number 18 into town) stops . Don't necessarily look for the bus shelter, as they are now putting a new one... More
