A modern and comfortable YHA in a fantastic quiet location but still close enough to walk into Ironbridge whenever you want. Good cafe and clean comfortable rooms though book well in advance as it fills up quickly.

This was our second stay at YHA Ironbridge Coalport, and we were here during another heatwave! Since our last stay, there was an electric fan in the bedroom, which made a huge difference to the temperature and comfort in the room (thank you!) The hostel is excellent - lovely staff, great facilities of lounges, the games room and self-catering kitchen.... More

Excellent youth hostel. Good cafe with nice breakfast and very good evening meal. Very well located out of the main crush of ironbridge but close to everything. Very helpful staff, and easy parking. You can walk into Ironbridge in the evening along an excellent path system.

Lovely location, though better if you are not using public transport. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great food in the cafe at good prices. Rooms are a little cramped, but it is a hostel. It wasn't especially hot when we were there but the duvets seemed to have special heat-retention qualities as it was very hot at night. A top... More

An excellent historical building in an historical setting. All museums within walking distance of the hostel with plenty of riverside and woodland walks. Really felt like being off the beaten track and stepping back into time.

Ate lunch here while visiting the museum. Enjoyed our burger and chips shared the portion between 2 as quite large. Very clean. Friendly staff. Nice seated area outside. Cycle shop on site. Would certainly recommend the cafe.

Located within the grounds of Coalport China museum this hostel is very sparkly and modern inside the facade of the old china works. A great stop-over location for families with top class self catering facilities and a delicious menu available in the cafe located underneath the hostel. Great location for visiting in and around Ironbridge, Coalport and surrounding areas.

I have been very impressed with this location. The staff were lovely. The food both morning and evening was tasty. The self catering kitchen was well stocked with equipment (may need more tea towels out at half term) I got a good nights sleep. All the points in the negative are minor - I like a shelf by the bunk... More
