Residential accommodation (ages 12+).
Ideal for groups of younger students, teens, adults and corporates groups, YHA Bristol is situated in a former waterfront grain house, which has been sympathetically restored to offer relaxed, well-appointed accommodation in the perfect city-centre location. You'll find many of the city’s very best attractions on the doorstep.
Dorm-style rooms sleeping 2-6 people are provided for students. Private rooms are available for teachers/group leaders. Some rooms have en-suite facilities.
For those rooms that don't have en-suite facilities, shared shower and toilet facilities are located close to each room.
Each room typically includes bunk beds, a reading light and storage cupboard for each guest which can be secured by a padlock if needed.
Breakfast and dinner is available in the on-site café/restaurant where plenty of choice is provided, and all dietary needs can be catered for. A packed lunch is also provided daily.
