Bath YMCA has been rated a 4*** hostel by Visit England July 2021. We are a member of Bath Tourism Plus.

Our new rates reflect a standard room without breakfast or a rate with a boxed breakfast so you have the freedom to chose.

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 135 years old and overlooks the bustling Broad Street. It houses our dormitory accommodation for groups, backpackers and holiday makers.. 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, double, twin, ensuite, triple, quad rooms and 5 bed 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 or free if you book directly with us! 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.

    Friendly, welcoming staff. Comfortable beds. Clean room - basic but that’s fine for the price! Radiator was on full blast when we woke up but that’s probably our fault for not checking the settings before going to bed. Ideal location in the town centre. Overall excellent value for money.

    Pretty standard hostel, the rooms and showers were clean and the staff were very friendly and always happy to help. Theres some nice places to sit including a rec room with sofas, a tv, boardgames etc. I spent most of my weekend out and about so it was perfect for me to have a cheap place to just crash overnight.

    Really enjoyed our stay here, superb location in the centre of bath and within walking distance of all the sights. Parking less than 2mins at the podium car park. Only downside for us was lack of sockets in the room, top floor showers lacking pressure otherwise a comfortable stay in a lovely city. Excellent value for money.

    Nice hostel, very well located. Don’t expect too much out of it. You have what you pay for. However, the rooms were clean. The bathroom not so cleaned and didn’t have locks or any type of security. Even though they are not mixed, everyone can get in.. that’s the only major negative point from me as it makes you feel insecure.

    Very Good

    Noisy and not controlled. If you have cameras in the corridors and you can see someone on their mobile phone in the corridor between 01:00 and 02:00 it would be a nice idea to go and ask them to take the call elsewhere. Communal areas/stairwell not clean. Found rubbish, hair and a pair of scissors under my bed. All the staff I spoke to were very nice and helpful.

    Great location. Unfortunately, the macerator toilets on the third floor did not work effectively. The police were in attendance on my arrival as a case had been stolen from the staff only area. The lock was secure on my room, which catered well, but the window next to the bed did not shut completely and there were weird handprints on the wall.
