Self catering hostel in Hebden Bridge

Welcome to the newly refurbished Hebden Bridge Hostel run by national arts organisation IOU.

The hostel is ideally situated as a base from which to discover the many hidden gems in Calderdale. Dramatic hills, rivers, waterfalls and wooded valleys are on the doorstep, as is the friendly market town of Hebden Bridge.

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, as featured on Radio 3’s Northern Drift and R6 Music. 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.

Hebden Bridge Hostel offers contemporary, comfortable & affordable accommodation. Self check in and check out. Large function room/dining room. WiFi throughout. Cosy snug.

“Our recent stay at IOU Hebden Bridge Hostel was a very positive one! We were in residence at IOU Theatre in Halifax for a week which was easily accessible via a walk to the station and a short train journey. We received a warm welcome from Jill on arrival and were given a tour of the beautifully refurbished hostel. The hostel is light and airy and the rooms are comfortable. There is plenty of communal space to eat and relax in. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped, making it easy to cook meals for a group. Jill was brilliant with communication, ensuring that we had everything we needed. We would highly recommend IOU hostel, situated in this beautiful market town!”
