Welcome to our special section for our youngest hostellers.

YHA began all the way back in 1930 (the same year that Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, was born!), and children have been staying in our hostels ever since. In a normal year, around 400,000 young people visit our hostels across England and Wales. That’s a lot of buttered toast and pillow fights!
