The hostel worth the money. We re having the smallest room in the hostel & it costs just 40 pounds for 2 people for a 2-nights stay. (Deposit 10% is not included) It's located up the 199 steps, next to the Whitby Abbey, whereas you can get a free voucher for entering the Abbey.There re private gardens, self-catering services, beautiful lounges...the only concern is getting the luggage up the 199 steps, you can get the 24-hours tourist yellow bus for 5 pounds close to the information centre.


We've just had a fabulous stay in Whitby, a perfect location and the staff couldn't be more helpful and kind. The best value for money we have ever had during our travels around Europe and the U.S. Thank you so much.

We came to Whitby for a short weekend trip and loved the small village and its harbour. The location of the hostel is brilliant. It's right next to the Abbey and as a guest you get a free entrance ticket to visit the abbey. We got a very warm welcome by the staff and the facilities were clean and cosy. We would definitely recommend this hostel. See you soon. :)
