News & Offers from Harlow International Hostel

Harlow has a lot of interest for a hosteller

July 11th 2023

Harlow, like Milton Keynes, suffers from a false impression that, being a New Town it has little to interest the hosteller. This is not so! Harlow International is situated in the older part of the town, overlooking the extensive Town Park and within minutes of the River Stort. It’s handy for the station, a pleasant 5 minute walk along a quiet lane

The hostel offers cooked meals (if you so wish) or there’s a self catering kitchen if you would rather cook for yourself.  There is also a hostel shop.

The friendly staff are happy to help you any way they can and a warm welcome is guaranteed. With London just a 30 min train ride away, and 50 mins to Stanstead Airport, Harlow International Hostel has a lot going for it.
