An updated and contemporary waterfront youth hostel with double rooms, family rooms and dormitories.

This fantastically located youth hostel is a good bet if you’re on a budget and fancy a weekend in the city. In the summer, locals head here to drink outside, swinging their legs off the waterfront wall and supping the delights that its bar – and that of the neighbouring Arnolfini art gallery – have to offer. Inside the former grain warehouse building there’s a small café on the ground floor, an upstairs lounge, and a mixture of double, 4-person, 6-person and dormitory rooms, which are all bright and simply furnished (and some ensuite). There’s a shared kitchen too. Rates are cheaper for YHA members, but you need to book well in advance for weekend breaks.

The Owner Says

On the waterfront in Bristol city centre lies a former grain house, sympathetically restored to offer a relaxed cosmopolitan surrounding, perfectly situated for a cheap city break or weekend away. Step out the door of YHA Bristol and be immediately ready to explore the harbourside and old city areas, full to the brim with restaurants, bars and thriving live music and club scene. Visit the fantastic Avon Gorge Brunel's suspension bridge or enjoy Bristol's rich cultural base of theatres, museums and art galleries. If the day's activities have taken it's toll, then YHA Bristol also offers a delicious menu, served in the licensed bar and restaurant. This backpackers hostel makes a perfect base for those wanting a break in the one of the UK's most thriving cities.

★★★★☆

contemporary building in perfect location

A 'cool' youth hostel? Well yes of course (this is bristol after all). This place was my first introduction to bristol (that and mud-dock...) and I was pleasantly suprised. The building itself has an industrial feel to it which has been maintained in the interior. There is a nice bar/cafe and lots of communal space (lounge etc). Rooms are the standard yha dorms- comfortable enough.

The best bit though is the location- you are smack bang in the middle of Bristol's dockland area, Arnolfini around the corner and Bordeaux Quay opposite
