I have stayed at Bath YMCA before and it is perfect for a single traveller on a budget. Even very basic hotels in Bath can be quite expensive so this is a no frills but perfectly acceptable option. It is located in a peaceful courtyard across from the Hilton hotel and is only a 60 second walk to the main shopping streets. My single room cost me £35 per night and this included a continental breakfast. A hot breakfast could be purchased for about £2.50.

The spacious room had a single bed, a wardrobe, a writing desk and chair and a hand sink but was clean and peaceful. The YMCA only has shared wash room and bathroom facilities but they were clean and I never had to wait.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming and more efficient than some five star hotels I've stayed in. Free wifi is also available in the lobby area and there is even a health club if you want to avail of it.

This is not a hotel so do not stay here expecting a trouser press, a room service menu or even a tv in your room. It is not somewhere I would bring the wife for a weekend away but for the single traveller or a group of friends, you'll find it hard to beat the YMCA for value in Bath.

Wonderful, clean, place to stay in Bath. Less than half the price of hotels for private room. All the staff are really friendly. Hostel is central in the city ,so easy to visit all the attractions that Bath has to offer.

The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly: the breakfast is wonderful. If you can afford a coulpe of pounds you can even have a full English breakfast.


Visited this lovely hostel twice and would thoroughly recommend it.

If you are looking for a great value (about 30 pounds a night) in a single room in Bath this is a wonderful option. Single bedroom with a sink, desk, closet space, and no television. Shared bathroom/showers, but clean and I never had to wait for a shower stall. Free WiFi available in the lobby area, and internet option for those without their own computer. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere. This YMCA accepts all ages. Breakfast (cold) included, and hot meal for small price. If shared bathroom/shower facilities not a problem for you, this is an ideal option based on the prices for most accomodations in Bath. Hotel about a 7-10 minute walk from the train station.

It's a decent average hostel. Their main selling points are the rates and accessibility to Bath town center. We had a private room, shared facilities. The electric sockets didn't work, but we were there for only one night, so we didn't bother following up. They charge for left luggage, even if it's for half a day... and we felt that was a bit of nickel-and-diming.
Also, it's very difficult to find this place first time around. There is a really small board that points you the alley from the main road. I wish they would fix that!
