Independent Hostels UK

Independent Hostels UK is the largest network of hostel and bunkhouse owners in England, Scotland and Wales.

We believe in Direct Booking and on this website everything you say and everything you pay goes direct to your hosts.

Most hostels and bunkhouses are now open.  Some places are still only taking bookings for exclusive use.  At others you can book private bedrooms with shared social areas and just a few places are re-opening their dorms.

All over the UK

Hostels and bunkhouses have self-catering facilities and provide great value accommodation for one night or more.  They range from rural barns to city houses and are ideal for exploring the outdoors and independent travel.

There have been some changes to the way places operate  in the New Normal.  You can read about these on the hostel features.
