Opened in 1931, YHA Street is the oldest YHA hostel still in operation today, and makes for the ideal location for a Somerset activity break, with easy access to great routes for cycling and walking. The charming Swiss-style chalet is surrounded by delightful National Trust land.

YHA Street has recently been refurbished with improvements to the rooms, common areas and washrooms as well as the addition of two new camping pods. 

From a day of pure magic at Glastonbury Tor, to a visit to the medieval Bishop's Palace in Wells - YHA Street has plenty to do. Families will also love the nearby Wookey Hole Caves, home of the Witch of Wookey Hole.

Why guests love YHA Street

  • The oldest YHA still in operation
  • Characterful Swiss-style chalet
  • Close to the Mendip Hills

Accommodation at YHA Street

Bed in a shared room

Dorms are not currently available. 

Dorm rooms have multiple beds, are typically more affordable than private rooms, and shared with other people who may not be travelling together. A typical shared room includes bunk beds, a reading light and a storage cupboard for each guest, secured by a padlock if required.

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

Some dorms may be en-suites, meaning that they have a bathroom in the room that you would be sharing with the other people in your dorm.

Private rooms

Don't fancy sharing a room? Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard for each bed, secured by a padlock if required, a reading light and a wash hand basin. Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room.

Hire the whole place

This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you.

We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire.

Camping pods

If you like camping, you'll love these wooden camping pods! We have two Large Pods at YHA Street, which sleep four (on a double futon and two single beds). Enjoy luxury camping without the luxury price tag. These wooden pods have heating and an outdoor seating area - perfect for disposable BBQs, bring all your usual camping gear, apart from sleeping bags and mats, but sleep sheltered from the elements!

Our pods have self contained facilities. The hostel will not be available for guests to enter during stay.

Landpods

These brand new Landpods, upgraded for 2019, are fully waterproof and sleep up to four adults. They are slightly elevated off the ground for a comfortable night’s sleep under the stars – you can even open the roof for a better view! With LED lighting these cosy pods include all beds and bedding. There is a table and bench outside so you can make the most of the great outdoors and dine al fresco.

The new larger Landpod sleeps up to 4 people, on two small double mattresses (one above the other) and a single futon mattress, which doubles up as the seating area. They’re even tall enough to stand up in! There is no heating in our Landpods.

Camping

Bring your own tent and camp in the National Trust grounds of the oldest hostel in the YHA network. Campers are welcome to use the hostel facilities including the communal bathrooms and the self-catering kitchen.
