Beautiful building, one of the nicest hostels I've been to. Comfy beds, nice shower and bathroom, friendly staff, great kitchen and laundry facilities. Everything's very clean. Amazing price for what you get!
Not enough storage place in the room, no lockers at all to keep your belongings safe, only in the basement - and you have to pay separately to use them (0.5-1 pound).
Nice garden for relaxing in, in good weather. Nice TV room. Good kitchen which was kept very clean. Very central, only 10 minutes walk to all the tourist things.
Not enough parking. I had to park on the street and move in to one of the few car spaces the next morning when a few people had left. I don't see how YHA could do more for parking in that property but it is a difficulty.
The lounge room was peaceful, well-illuminated and with nice background music, and there was always a free seat whenever I happened to need one. Checking out before the reception opened (7:30 AM) was completely unproblematic.
The self-catering kitchen is quite small and therefore prone to get crowded at meal hours. The dormroom's windows can be opened only to a very limited extent (certainly for security purposes), and this means the room wasn't always decently ventilated.
The space is fine.
The reception is not friendly and kept me waiting for 0.5 hour while nobody was there at 8.40pm.
Nice building, quiet neighbourhood, good sized bathroom, individual bedlights and power outlet for each bed with a small shelf to put your phone or something else on.
Too warm in the room + bedding (the weather was extra warm at the time, so might not ve a problem normally). A bit unpractical that the shower was in the same room as the toilet. We missed having small lockers in the room. There were big ones in the basement (suitcase size).
With a stay at YHA Canterbury - Hostel in Canterbury, you'll be within a 5-minute drive of St. Martin's Church and Canterbury Christ Church University. Featured amenities include multilingual staff, luggage storage, and laundry facilities.
