Food and drink

At YHA we pride ourselves on delivering delicious food at affordable prices. Not only this, but Kids Eat Free at selected hostels, which means you'll save even more on a family stay with YHA.


Whether you want a sizzling Full English or an oh-so European croissant and coffee to go, a YHA breakfast is a great way to kick-start your day. Plus, there’s 10% off when you add breakfast to your online booking.

Evening meals

Gone are the days of just cooking your own meals at YHA – most of our locations have licensed bars and restaurants where you can indulge in a tasty meal and a refreshing beverage. From stone-baked pizzas to hearty British favourites, it’s time to indulge after a day’s adventure.


Many of our hostels offer food throughout the day, offering hot drinks, snacks, cakes and a range of hot food. Plus, all our catered hostels are happy to prepare you a packed picnic lunch ahead of your day of exploring.

Kids under 10 eat free!
