Absolutely incredible location”

Wow. What views. You'll never believe that this hostel is at the top of the 199 steps and bang next to the Whitby Abbey. You even get free access to the Abbey and Museum when you stay. The staff were amazing. The parking is free. The check-in is at around 5 pm so get parked and get exploring. The parking is a little strange. You need to drive through the gates of the museum entrance and go down behind it. We had a six bed dorm to ourselves. The view of Whitby is superb in the morning when you wake, and in the evening when all the lights are on. In all, what a great spot for a stay in Whitby and the price is fantastic in comparison to the local hotel options. Thank you YHA!

Reviewed September 05, 2021

Thank you so much for leaving this great review and I’ll be sure to share it with the team. We think our location is pretty special too. We’ve got some great mid week offers this autumn so we’d love to see you again soon.

Perfect stay”

It was the best YHA I've ever stayed. It was so nice and lovely that I regretted to stay only for 1 night. The building itself has a long history that gives us a unique experience to stay. The location was perfect. It located just next to the Whitby Abbey and St Mary's Church. The hostel is group and family friendly. This YHA doesn't offer a typical self-catering kitchen but also a cafe which reliefs us from the hassle to cook. The only problem will be parking space. The YHA Whitby has limited car parking space and the nearest council car parking will be about 5-10 minutes walk from the accommodation. The council car parking has plenty of space and is free during winter. But it is so dark that you will require bringing a torch to walk to and fro the YHA Whitby. Overall, we are satisfied with our stay with YHA Whitby and will come back for sure.

Perfect accommodation to visit Whitby Abbey”

We went with a family of 2 small children and 3 adults (1 of which, a senior). The hostel was initially hard to find as it didn't particularly have any signage towards it. We ended up walking ALL around with our luggages before finding the entrance and realising that we didn't need to walk that way. We had our own simple showers and toilets. (You get what you pay for). The carpets were a bit.... overused. And we had views to a carpark. But for the price we paid, we're not complaining. It was clean enough. Bare minimum. There are communal sitting rooms and a kitchen. BUT the best bit was that we got complimentary tickets to visit Whitby Abbey! We enjoyed the Dracula Experience and had a really day out. (OMG don't miss that Dracula Experience, it's the best EVER!) The hostel is basically attached to the Abbey. There's free parking. It was in a way perfect for us! It was cheap, it had everything we needed, and we got free tickets!

Amaging value for a short break (£29 --3 bed room)”

The hostel has a fabulous location and it was surprisingly comfortable. Staff were polite and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. Public areas were clean and made it more fun. The best extra was as we left we got given comp tickets from yha to enter whitby abbey! Thank you.

Many thanks for your review - there are many good deals to be had in the off-peak months, especially midweek, and we are glad you were able to take advantage of them! Regards, Simon and the hostel team

Pleasure to stay in such a beautiful building with good value of money”

Very comfortable, clean, and spacious room. Located in a beatific and well-preserved heritage building right next to Whitby Abbey. The only complaint was that there was a metallic noise (coming out from the toilet maybe? I was in room 13) going on and on throughout the time, making it a difficult to fall asleep. And I even got woken up several times in the middle of the night. But all in all I still enjoyed my stay.
