Staying with us this season

Guest and hostel team safety is our top priority.

To give you peace of mind during your stay, we have a range of guest safety measures in place. We encourage all hostel guests to respect other people’s personal space and their preference to wear a face covering.

And of course, a real strength of YHA is access to amazing outdoor spaces – both on our grounds and in the settings we help you reach – and the positive impact on wellbeing that connecting to nature and the outdoors gives us.

We hope you have the opportunity to have an enjoyable stay in the coming months with us in England or Wales. And thank you again for your continuing support of YHA.
