A great YHA hostel. Very good hosts and wardens (Dave & Clare Thompson and daughter Megan). Nice interesting mix of guests. Only minus points, No Wi-Fi and poor mobile reception inside (OK outside). The old building has very thick walls.

Great little hostel right next to the Minster and the historic main street. Décor has altered since my last visit and it's now more corporate/gloomy colour scheme/metal bunk beds, but it's still unbeatable value and full of character.

We stayed there and it was quite good. The cloister has a big garden which is nice, because you can sit outside and read a book. Unfortunately they don't offer cooked meals or packed lunches for classes anymore. The cloister is good for cyclists. You can spend the night there and move on. Upstairs they still have very old wallpaintings... More

What a really nice YHA. Really helpful vounteers, good facilties and very comfortable. We had a 3 bedroom, ensuite with a view of the Minister. Well equipped kitchen. What more could anyone want. The town is really nice - lots of independent shops and some good eateries.

Wow, I stayed here with friends one weekend in September and was totally amazed at the buildings history and the restoration. We had a ground floor en suite room with space for 3 bunk beds. Lots of beautiful & quirky around the building from recently discovered wall paintings to beams, to ovens hidden by bunk beds and fire places. There... More

It's been many years since staying in a YHA so surprised to see how far they have come. En-suite..really ? The only room available was a 6 person bunk room, so paid over the odds for me and two kids. The facilities are great, everything you need in the kitchen. The great hall upstairs is comfortable and has a huge... More

Beverley YHA is a restored friary 40 yards from Beverley Minster. The hostel teems with history with friezes from the 17th century lovingly preserved. The common room is very comfortable and is in the old Great Hall. The gardens are excellent for relaxing in and Beverley itself is a town that is buzzing. Love the whole place.

A small group of us stayed here for 2 nights. Newly refurbished, the friary was my first hostel experience and I shall do it again. Clean, spacious and welcoming.
