Please note that our postcode does not work in a SAT NAV - please use the road name 'Bathwick Hill' to make sure you arrive in the right place

Public Transport

Book your coach tickets here. There are also frequent buses between the railway and coach station, the city centre and the University of Bath which all stop right outside YHA Bath. Look out for the U1 or U18 bus. These buses run 24 hours a day and you can buy return and all day tickets for the route on the bus. Ask the driver for “the Youth Hostel”.

This 3 word address identifies the precise 3m x 3m square at the hostel's entrance. It’s much more reliable than a street address, which can take you to the wrong place particularly in the countryside. Paste these 3 words into the what3words app to get directions, even without a data connection. Click here to learn more.
