History

In the 1600s, the hostel was one of three flour mills on Scalby Beck, a small river just outside of Scarborough. In the 18th century the wheel was removed, the mill race drained and the building was used as a farm house. Just after the First World War the derelict building was bought and converted into a boarding house. When it was opened in 1935 it was one of the YHA’s first hostels and the owner Mrs Atkinson was kept on as warden when YHA later bought the buildings.

After numerous additions and alterations, an annexe was added in 1962 increasing capacity to 70 beds.

YHA Scarborough was listed for closure in 2009, but continued to operate as a YHA hostel until Rob and Elise bought it in June 2013 as an Enterprise Hostel.
