Streatley-on-Thames Youth Hostel has the very proud history of being a youth hostel before youth hostels were invented! In the early 20th century the family who owned Hill House had links with a very poor diocese in south London and invited children who lived there to spend a holiday at their big house. In 1935 the family gave the house to the fledgling Youth Hostel Association because they supported YHA's charitable aims.

YHA Streatley-on-Thames manager Nick started his YHA career in the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales before moving down to Streatley. He is very proud to have represented YHA at a Buckingham Palace reception for the tourism industry where he met HRH The Queen and Prince Edward.
