I've never stayed in a Youth Hostel before, and frankly I've not been keen on the idea but after staying here my opinion has been flipped on its head. The room was pretty basic but clean and comfortable, really quiet, plenty of plug sockets for charging phones etc and ensuite too so no sharing a bathroom. The staff were very... More

Stayed here for one night having wanted to stay in this beautiful building for some time. There was nowhere to park nearby apart from a costly car park about a mile away. We had understood on booking that there was free parking on site - there is but only a few spaces and not for all guests. There was no... More

Stayed here at YHA Whitby for 2 nights on June as a Solo traveler (wish I stayed longer) PROS: 1. This hostel is great! walking distance from the Whitby Abbey (imagine that). The location is perfect for you to see the amazing view of the entire Whitby. From the rail station, around 15-min. drive or 30-35 min walk. 2. The... More

We (my husband, two young children and myself) stayed for 2 nights in Whitby YHA and I was dubious, didn't know what to expect. I'm thrilled to say it was fabulous. The staff were very welcoming and great with the kids, couldn't be more helpful. Location excellent and very beautiful, with a free pass to the Abbey. Our room was... More

Backpacking trips abroad have led me to many YHA accommodations which has served me well for an affordable bed and the chance to socialise with other travelers but I have to admit that until last weekend I had never stayed at one in the UK even though I am a member. So I booked a night at Whitby YHA and... More

We've just got back from a four night stay. The staff on the reception where cheerful and extremely helpful. We were a group of four but were given a room for six so we had plenty of room to relax. The beds were comfortable and the room clean. There was a problem with the plumbing but as soon as we... More
