About YHA Manchester

YHA Manchester is your one stop destination for a city break that has everything. From shopping in the city centre and the Trafford Centre; to the sporting heritage of the city - think the football rivalry of Manchester City and Manchester United and the famous cricket ground, there's plenty to do on your visit.

For a city with such an iconic music legacy (rock 'n' roll legends Oasis hail from Manchester), it's only fitting that this budget accommodation choice should have a buzzing atmosphere - a great base from which to enjoy local live music or dance the night away, Manchester is also well known for its vibrant house music scene.

You can indulge a drink and dinner in the bar or on the terrace, with its fabulous views of the canal before going out on the town. Have a look at what is on offer on our menu here. Manchester is home to some of the country's top nightspots and DJ Magazine's top club for 2010, Sankeys.

Having recently undergone a refurbishment, this great quality Youth Hostel is perfect for weekend breaks and exploring Manchester. Close to theatres and museums, as well as everything else we've already mentioned, there really is something here for everyone.

YHA members can enjoy free Wi-Fi in social areas at YHA Manchester!

Manager recommends

  • If you're in Manchester for a weekend break, book a taster session at the Chill Factore and learn to ski or snowboard indoors on real snow. Airkix indoor skydiving centre offers an experience like no other. Learn the basics of skydiving on the indoor wind tunnel and have a blast on your city break!
