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 families, walkers and cyclists alike. YHA Whitby is an historic mansion situated on the Abbey Headland, 199 steps up from the cobbled old town and next door to the famous ruined abbey. Relax in our beautiful, award-winning gardens or on a nearby sandy beach. Unwind in our licensed Cafe-Bar.

Not a lot of options in Whitby for affordable accommodation. The YHA was clean, comfortable with a great kitchen. Perfect place to rest your head if you’re exploring the area but absolutely no atmosphere. Definitely not a youth hostel vibe, more full of families. Location is stunning, but be prepared for the 199 steps. Major downside is no laundry facilities and Wi-Fi is terrible and practically Mon existent. Would stay again if travelling solo purely for price.
