Bath YMCA has been rated at a 3*** plus hostel by Visit England for 2018/2019. We are a member of Bath Tourism Plus.

The YMCA is centrally located, just a stones throw away from all the major tourist attractions, tempting shops, sensational restaurants, Bath Rugby, pubs, clubs and award winning parks. If you want to be in the middle of it, then the YMCA is the location for you.

The old Victorian building is at least 130 years old and overlooks the bustling Broad Street. It houses our dormitory accommodation for groups, backpackers and holiday makers. It also boasts a rather unusual mural on the grand main staircase. All guests have access to single sex bathroom facilities throughout the range of accommodation and all areas have secure access, ensuring your safety at all times.

We do have 4 ensuite rooms, there are separate male and female showers and toilets available on each floor.

All our single, twin, double, triple and quad rooms deliver a higher standard of hostel room in Bath. All our house rooms are accessible by a key fob.

Staff on the 24 hour reception are nearly all locals who know Bath inside out. So we can help you plan your stay, organise and book tours or recommend a place to eat or visit. We will let you know what's on, where's in and what to avoid and what's unmissable in Bath.

Guests at the YMCA also benefit from access to our fantastic health and fitness centre (at a discounted rate), with a great gym, a wicked range of classes for those of you who want to sweat, tone with the friendliest gym staff you are ever likely to meet. So, if you are travelling but want to maintain your fitness programme we're the place for you.

If you are travelling in a big group we can also offer conference facilities/meeting rooms further catering etc - just ask and we will do our best to deliver!

    MY room was near a single shower room, which was good - but it was difficult to get the water running warm in the shower. The bedroom was very hot - it turns out that, counter-intuitively, the radiator knobs turn clockwise to become cooler ( and vice versa in the shower). There was a good selection of breakfast goodies; it is a pity that a cooked breakfast is now only provided if booked at weekends.

    Stayed there for one night over the easter long weekend, great location, great sized room and bathroom. However, we did have a lot of drama with hot water, in that there never seemed to be much of it, this was fine as it was so warm over the weekend, but it would be absolutely miserable if it was cold. Other than that, great experience!

    The problem was the noise, it was extremely noisy, people were screaming all night, drinking laughing until early in the morning... And because it was quite hot we had to leave the window open which brought even more noise from the courtyard. Other than that the staff was nice, the location is really good, cleanliness was good. The shower wasn't really good. Every time someone was flushing the water would stop or change temperature really not nice when showering.

    Can easily say its a very convenient location with barely a 5 minutes walk into the high street. Also, lot of good options to eat around. A bit noisy in the dorm because the people walking by were quite drunk around the Easter break, and the garbage collection trucks would make really scary noises early morning. The toilets and shower room could be a bit better maintained. And finally the lockers are outside of the dorm room, so you have to keep going back and forth.

    Dining room, chill out area and front garden are fantastic, great way to meet and chill with other travellers. Staff were very nice General cleanliness was pretty low - bathroom facilities were mediocre, toilets clogged regularly, showers were a bit hit-and-miss with water temperature, bathroom floor was always soaked Room smelt really odd - and the window didn’t open... Despite this, definitely would recommend for a few nights, really enjoyed my stay for a reasonable price!

    Very Good

    19 Apr 2019
    A good place for a short stay. We had a private room with shared bathroom facilities. It was basic but clean and the beds were comfortable. it more than served our needs for one night. The continental breakfast was also adequate. A good location not far from the centre. The main negative point was the noise from outside that went on until late.

    Excellent location, close to sights and shops. Comfy beds with curtains for privacy. Kitchen being renovated so cooking facilities limited to microwave and kettle. Free Breakfast excellent. Atmosphere not great, possibly due to it being a bit of a community centre also. Everyone seemed to keep to themselves.

    Honestly, I was absolutely shocked to see the condition of everything. Matress covers we're torn, blood spot on my pillow, walls are peeling, holes in the dining room ceiling... Just looked and felt gross. I made the staff aware of the torn cover but they didn't really do anything because it's zipped around the mattress. The café IS NOT OPEN!! AND THERE IS NO SELF CATERING KITCHEN!!! I would post pictures of the place if I could. Definitely built for people on a budget, but come on.

    they just put sheets on a mattress for you to make. If you in the third bunk at the top, you are in for a difficult time. The actual pillow was stained yellow. My pointpoint next to my bed didn't have electricity the first night. My mates PowerPoint made a crackling noise the entire night despite having nothing plugged in. They didnt use keys, they just tell you a pin. The lockers in the room are mostly damaged. Doors bashed in or missing. There are heaps of other reasons but I've run out of
