What's it like in a hostel?

We’ve come to find that many people’s perception of what a hostel is all about is often quite a long way from the truth. Therefore, we’d love to dispel some of the myths and misconceptions that we’ve come across over the years.  YHA England & Wales youth hostels have received millions of pounds in investment and care in recent years, to ensure they can be used and enjoyed for generations to come.
