Whitby Youth Hostel


Right on the headland, 199 steps up from the cobbled quayside and smack next door to the famous ruined Abbey sits Abbey House. YHA’s new home in Whitby.

The views of the Esk Valley and surrounding coastline are to die for, as is the brand new, fully-refurbished accommodation. Relax in the historic gardens or spend a day on one of the nearby sandy beaches. Explore the nearby moors on foot or bike before sitting down to fine food, in our restaurant.

    Has to be one of the best hostels in the whole of the Uk. Where else do you get to stay in such a beautiful building in the middle of one of the most scenic and historic towns in England. The Hostel is beautiful, the rooms are first class and the price isnt tool bad at all. Its a bit difficult to climb the 199 steps after a few ales down below in the Duke Of York, but once at the top of the steps the view over Whitby is beyond description. If you cant manage the steps then a taxi from town is about 5 pounds. I would mark the hostel down slightly on its location as its tough to get to if your a little unfit, but on all other scores this hostel is unrivalled.
