The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Hostel city breaks

Hostels are great for cheap city breaks in the UK. You can find superior budget accommodation right across England, Wales and Scotland in a wide variety of city hostels and backpacker places, many with unbeatable locations close to all the major sights. Dorm beds offer the cheapest stay, but you'll also be able to choose private and en-suite rooms that still offer a great deal – and, as many city hostels also have self-catering kitchens, not to mention good-value bars and restaurants, it's easy to meet up with like-minded people and keep costs to a minimum. The YHA (and SYHA in Scotland) have the biggest selection of city-based hostels, and as YHA city breaks compare favourably in price with budget hotels in places such as London, it always pays to book well in advance. Safestay is another quality hostel provider, with upscale city hostels in major locations. From the capital cities of London, Edinburgh and Cardiff to the universities of Oxford and Cambridge or smaller city gems like Canterbury or Stirling, there's a city-break hostel that's bound to be right up your street.
