YHA Hawes is managed by Steve and his team. We aim to provide the best of service in a warm, friendly and spotlessly clean environment. David is the owner of the business and spends free time at the hostel away from his day job where possible. We have plans to offer work experience to young people with learning disabilities while still maintaining a hostel for all to enjoy. Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing you.
