Perfect for You

Hostels and bunkhouses are ideal for walkers, cyclists and family holidays in the UK while  City, Backpackers and Boutique Hostels cater for young or  independent travellers.

Hostels are perfect for self catering holidays and ideal for a stop-over to break a long journey.  Unlike holiday cottages, hostels provide accommodation for stays as short as one night.

They also provide self catering group accommodation ideal for schools, groups and reunions of families and friends.

There are hostels by the Sea, in the Mountains and in National Parks.  All the self catering accommodation on this website welcomes groups and over  80% is also available to individuals.

Hostels are sustainable by nature and many are Eco Hostels with green awards.  Some are ideal for retreats. Over a quarter of the accommodation on this website is dog friendly  and many have some  level of accessibility.

A selection of hostels and bunkhouses welcome stag and hen parties and over a hundred are within walking distance of a pub.

Nearly every hostel and bunkhouse has a self catering kitchen and many provide a Best Price Guarantee, ensuring the prices they offer you through this website are the best value you will find. Looking for the hostel experience but on a smaller scale? Our Small Hostels Map page has 26 lovely hostels, bunkhouses and camping barns in stunning locations all with less than 10 beds.
