This affordable, family-friendly accommodation is in a stunning location near the abbey ruins and overlooking the bustling town of Whitby with so much to do. Many attractions to keep you busy, including a fascinating museum and art gallery.

An awesome coastal location with wonderful views, the Esk Valley and North Yorkshire Moors will tempt walkers and cyclists alike. YHA Whitby is an historic building situated on the headland, 199 steps up from the cobbled quayside and next door to the famous ruined abbey. Relax in the gardens or on a nearby sandy beach. Unwind in our licensed restaurant.

The hostel has 24 hour access. Parking is limited on site. We operate a Tearoom behind the Abbey Visitor Centre.
Parking is available for Blue Badge holders
Further Parking is available in council car-park, 2 min walk.

Great location, staff were brilliant. Unfortunately, I did not get a good nights sleep in the female dorm - there were three senior female snorers which was unbearable and left me sleep deprived. I would still highly recommend the hostel itself but perhaps snorers should be segregated into a separate dorm.
