Best Whitby hostels

Top tips for finding the perfect Whitby hostel

  • Booking a hostel in Whitby gives you several advantages over booking accommodations in one of the area’s hotels, resorts, or vacation homes. One of the most significant advantages of booking accommodations at one of the hostels in Whitby is the savings. Hostels are generally much more affordable than hotels and other properties in the same area, giving you access to the seaside and local attractions at a much lower price.
  • When you’re looking for hostels in Whitby, you’ll only have one option to choose from. However, if you expand your search for accommodations to the nearby town of Flyingthorpe, you’ll have another great option without losing your convenient access to Whitby Abbey, the Church of St. Mary, and the rest of Whitby’s attractions. Flyingthorpe is located just 15 min drive or a 25 min bus ride from Whitby, making travel between the two towns quick and easy.
  • If you’re heading to Whitby on your own, choosing the right hostel is an essential part of planning a smooth and eventful vacation. The YHA Boggle Hole in Flyingthorpe is a great option for solo travelers because of its proximity to the beach, as it is located just steps away from a once-famous smuggler’s beach and the North York Moors National Park. To keep you busy when you’re not out exploring, this hostel also features a cafe and bar on site.
  • For those who are traveling to the Whitby area in groups, you’ll need to book a hostel that can accommodate your entire group. The YHA Whitby, located on the East Cliff of Whitby, offers twin and triple rooms that you can mix and match depending on the size of your group. This hostel also features gardens, a tea room nearby, and an on-site game room to keep your group occupied during your stay.
