      'Wonderful place, the rooms are in the Abbey buildings and you get free tickets to visit the Abbey (worth £6 each). Also excellent buffet breakfast for only £5 each.

      Only complaint was uncomfortable bed in otherwise very nice room. Also No towels provided.

    • Family with children

      Next to Abbey . Able to park car . Staff on reception were polite & courteous

      Room felt like a room in an instituton . YHA is not a hotel & should not be described as such . Bathroom was awful , not an ensuite - designed for a patient receiving care . Ok for one night , but I would not return to YHA personally .

    • Family with children

      Faultless location anf free entry to whitby abbey

    • Single

      Excellent helpful friendly staff, stay there and you get a free ticket for Whitby Abbey lovely surroundings and plenty of places to visit.I Was there on a photography course some excellent landscape scenes harbour,Saltwick Bay ,Saltburn etc.Excellent breakfast as well. Can highly recommend .

      Some idiot left the shower running all night !

    • Family with children

      Fabulous location, very well serviced not at all noisey for a Youth Hostel, the staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to help.

      Having to leave so early, although a late check out facility was available. And the single price for breakfast, even though it was possible to have varying sized meals.

    • Single

      the location is stunning and very convenient for popping into the town.

    • Family with children

      We enjoyed our overnight stay at YHA Whitby, its in a fabulous location next to the Abbey with wonderful views over Whitby, The building was full of character and renovated to a high standard with lovely peaceful gardens. The rooms were clean and comfortable with ensuite facilities.The staff were very friendly and helpful.We had a wonderful stay which unfortunatley went by too quickly

    • Family with children

      The view, The building, The history, The staff, The food, The rooms and everything else that I haven't managed to put in this review! Truly a perfect place to stay!

    • Family with children

      Just about the best location for any stay in Whitby, couldn't be any closer to the famous abbey, as it's in the grounds itself at the top of the famous 199 steps

    • Older travelers

      approachable pleasant staff. Good value accommodation

      Felt the price of evening food was a little too high

    • Family with children

      good price, excellent staff, local to all ameenities

      bunk beds!

    • Group of friends

      This was our first visit to YH. We chose Whitby YH due to it's dramatic location near the Minster and near town location. The building certaily takes some beating for its grandeur.

      Despite it being a quiet time of the year. I am not convinced that not having a person in 'Reception,' during night hours is the right way to go!

    • Group of friends


      noisy plumbing kept me awake till very late

    • Family with children

      The staff are very friendly at this yha and it is in a great location next to the abbey. You also get free entrance to the abbey included. The rooms are basic but clean and warm and my son loves sleeping in a bunk bed. There is also a lot of history with the building in which it is located and the view From the garden of whitby is fab!!!

      The only thing that lets it down a little is the breakfast. I have had better but it is good value all the same and you can choose to do your own breakfast in the kitchen if you prefer. This does not take away from the yha at all tho and would recommend it to anyone.

    • Family with children

      The staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean with on suite facilities. Handy for getting into Whitby and the Abbey. Well worth the stay.
