Getting worn


Location is amazing, right next to the old Whitby Abbey, in an almost equally old and fascinating building. Staff went out of their way to be helpful with bikes, luggage, etc. Room was very clean, lovely bunks; breakfast (an extra 5 pounds) was extensive and plenty. Perfect.

The auberge is beautiful, its view is too pretty, the room and shower room was just fine, activities in yha whitby was good, the price of the breakfast was good or the quantities, but the wifi is not free and for me it's a bad point :(


The location of the hostel is fantastic as is right beside the Abbey and has amazing views over the town. The hostel itself has some amazing features such as the large size kitchen and dining room, plus we loved the common room as it was so nice and bright. The room was spacious and despite a small mouldy smell, we had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend this hostel.


Great place for a quick stop over, will definitely be back.
