    I recently stayed at YHA Stratford upon avon with my 3 children. The staff were really welcoming and great with the children. We ate at the restaurant for our first evening, I was pleasantly surprised at the standard of food and it was great value for money. The location of the YHA is great, as stratford upon avon is just a short distance away. The rooms were clean and well presented. Overall we had a great stay, thank you to all the staff. I would highly recommend the YHA.

    Best hostel I've ever stayed in. Bedrooms were clean, comfy and spacious with sink and mirrors. Bathrooms were great. Staff were super helpful. Very safe and secure atmosphere - very family friendly. Bus stop right across the road only 10 mins from town centre. All round beautiful building and very well kept.

    I'm in Stratford every few weeks and always and always make a point to stay here. The hostel is quite nice, the staff are super friendly and helpful, and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. The hostel is walkable to Stratford-Upon-Avon if you like a good stroll (about 40 minutes); otherwise there are buses that can get you to the town in no time. A great hostel.

    Do you have a car? If not I would NOT recommend this hostel. It’s out of the town and it is a pain to get to by bus. If you have a car and would like to stay in the countryside then you will have a nice time here. When I stayed the common room was completely over run with families leaving me with nowhere to sit but my room. The bed was comfortable & it was quiet at night. Next time I would stay at the pub in town.

    Such a nice location in the countryside. The bus is fairly convenient and the 40 minute walk to the town is pretty. The staff were very helpful. Quite a nice place overall.

    Very pleasant stay. Great kitchen facilities. Toilets could be a little better. It being an old house the floorboards creak quite a bit, but overall cleanliness was very good. Stratford is either a bus ride or 45 minute walk away. All types were staying.

    Quite far out of town and not well served by the bus, but overall a quiet place to rest your head while you're walking/exploring Stratford
