Independent hostels and bunkhouses have varying levels of access for the disabled. Over 100 have some adaptations, often there is a bedroom or toilet designed for use by a disabled person, but some hostels are accessible throughout. Traditionally we highlighted all accommodation with some level of accessibility. From summer 2021 we will be adding full details, photos or an accessibility statement and only highlighting hostels with this information.
New places are being added everyday, so check back for updates.
Accessible Accommodation in Hostels and Bunkhouses
Independent hostels and bunkhouses have a variety of levels of access for the disabled. Over 100 have made some form of adaptation, often there is a bedroom or toilet designed for use by a disabled person, with some hostels being accessible throughout the building. We recommend that you talk directly with the accommodation staff to make sure that your needs can be properly met.
Traditionally all accommodation with some level of accessibility was included in the guide with a wheelchair symbol. From summer 2021 onwards we are only using this symbol where we have full information on the accessibility, as well as pictures. For a hostel in our network to be classed as fully accessible they are required to have all of the following:
At least one wheelchair accessible bedroom with a hoist
At least one level access bathroom
A wheelchair accessible kitchen
A wheelchair accessible communal area
Accommodation with accessibility details are shown on this page with links to the information. All fully accessible hostels on this page will be marked in bold text, but others with different levels of accessibility can also be found here for those with less complex physical requirements.
We are adding new places everyday, so keep checking back for updates.
