Self catering hostel in Hebden Bridge

Hebden Bridge Hostel, run by national arts organisation IOU, offers contemporary, comfortable & affordable accomodation in the heart of this beautiful town. We are proud to be the first fully vegetarian hostel in West Yorkshire.

Hebden Bridge is famous for its literary connections, LGBTQ community, its many pubs, restaurants, coffee houses, independent shops and cinema, canal, marina and not forgetting the iconic Trades Club. Visit the independent shops in Halifax Piece Hall, an 18th Century former Cloth Hall and take a look at the varied arts programme on offer in the adjoining Square Chapel Arts Centre, Cinema, Theatre and Cafe Bar.

With a fast growing reputation as a thriving arts community, Calderdale has developed many landmark buildings including Shibden Hall, former home of Ann Lister, and Dean Clough, a vibrant mill complex with a focus on contemporary arts, now home to six galleries, retail and food outlets, and IOU Studio

Our well equipped kitchen is fully and proudly vegetarian. We request no meat or fish to be prepared or eaten on the premises. There is a spacious dining/function room and a cosy snug with direct access to our outside spaces, seating, gardens and woodland. For muddy boots and mountain bikes there is an outdoor hose and bike racks. Parking is available on site by request and the hostel is right by a bus stop.

Sole use of the whole hostel can be booked and we recommend booking six months in advance to guarantee a reservation.

Prices include all bed linen, (please expect to make your own bed up), organic tea coffee, and WiFi throughout. Towels are NOT provided but can be hired on site on request.

This accommodation is featured on our map of Yorkshire and Lancashire and here is its own website.
