This really can't fail to meet most travellers' criteria - it's a recently refurbished hostel in a particularly scenic and convenient spot. We were visiting the various Ironbridge Museums over a period of a few days so a couple of nights here was just the ticket. Good self-catering facilities and lounge right next door for the kids to watch a... More

I booked a private room for two as an overnight break on a long journey expecting just to get a bed for the night, but ended up with a huge 6 bed ensuite room which was very comfy (maybe slightly too warm?) The hostel is set in a stunning part of the UK and it seems there is so much... More

Writing this review as I am about to check out and I have to say that I have absolutely love my time here. The staff is amazing, friendly, and very helpful. Ironbridge-Coalport is located within a complex that at one time was the Coalport China Factory, one of the many industries located in the Ironbridge Gorge along the Severn River.... More

Did not stay here but used the cafe as we were at the Coalpoirt China Museum which shares this campus. The service was great, the staff friendly and helpful, food and drinks very good and great value for money

Really enjoyed our stay here. We had a private room with own facilities. Typical YHA style - compact and functional. The building itself was brilliant. Two lounges, self-catering kitchen, laundry room and downstairs a nice cafe/restaurant. A very interesting area to visit.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Self catering facilities were great, good social space, and good wifi. Our room had two sets of bunks and was ensuite - the shower was good. Staff were friendly and helpful

Hi there and thanks for leaving this review. The YHA is housed in the former Coalport China Works which is a listed building and as such permitted alterations to the original features are limited. We do provide fans in all south facing rooms to aid ventilation but we did have some particularly hot weather during August this year. More

Over night stay here with 10 others. Accommodation was good and made use of the building. We were greeted warmly and were made welcome. Unfortunately we arrived late in the day and no food was available but the offer to make some pizza was made (my travelling companions had cycled 118 miles )and needed more food.
