Accommodation at YHA Malham

Bed in a shared room

Dorms are not currently available. 

Dorm rooms have multiple beds and are shared with other people who may not be travelling together. They are usually more affordable than private rooms as you'll be booking a bed rather than the whole room.

A typical shared dorm room includes bunk beds, a reading light and a storage cupboard for each guest.

Children aged between 12 and 15 can stay in dorm rooms as long as an adult of the same gender accompanies them.

Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room. None of our dorm rooms have en-suite facilities.

Private rooms

Want some privacy? With a private room, you'll be booking the whole room for your stay.

Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard and reading light for each bed, plus a wash hand basin.

Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room.

Private en-suite rooms

For added privacy, relax with your family, friends or by yourself in a private en-suite room.

Private en-suite rooms typically include a storage cupboard and reading light for each bed, plus shower and toilet facilities solely for the people in your room.

History

John Dower architect, rambler, conservationist and one of the key founders of the National Park movement designed several of the earliest Youth Hostels including Malham, opened in 1938. Malham was the first purpose built hostel in Yorkshire and it was built on the site of the old Malham Sheep Fair and funded by King George’s Jubilee Trust.

Meet the team

Christine and Martin Peryer have been managers with YHA for nearly 30 years at both city and rural hostels.

Manager recommends: The Malham area is famous for its Limestone Geology. So don't miss the lovely Janet’s Foss waterfall, spectacular Gordale Scar, Malham Cove and Malham Tarn are all within easy walking distance and definitely worth the visit. The Pennine Way and Yorkshire Dales Cycleway both pass through this village at the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park so it's a good spot for walking holidays and cycling holidays. The hostel has good facilities for educational groups on school trips.
