YHA Ravenstor is a great place to stay if you like walking and if you're interested in railway history.

Nice staff but the hostel itself needs an overhaul. Although the staff dealt with any problems promptly the hostel needs renovating, for instance there is not enough seating in the lounge and the radiator in our room leaked. There are lots of nice walks round about and lovely setting

Hostel was clean and well situated, we cycled directly to the Monday Trail. We will...

The YHA Ravenstor is a lovely building, in a good location and ideal for exploring the surrounding area. The car parking on one of the two roads to the YHA was plentiful. The hostel dorm room we stayed was a reasonable size. The beds are fairly new and comfortable. Slept okay for a hostel. Shower rooms clean enough, although the...

This is the first time I have stayed in a YHA since I was at school and I was so pleasantly surprised by my whole visit. I stayed here for two nights on my own before a local cycling event and I would really recommend it for all, particularly solo female travellers such as myself. Service at reception was brill...
