The cheapest place to stay in Malham is also one of the friendliest, with the hostel run by long-term wardens who put much of their personality into the place. It's in a quiet part of the village, just over the bridge and right next to one of the pubs (the Lister Arms), and is well-used by hikers and bikers, as well as families looking for a reasonably priced base (rooms sleep two to eight people, and there's a self-catering kitchen). Following a big, half-a-million-pound refurb, the hostel is looking decidedly snazzy these days – all the rooms got renovated, and five of them are now en-suite, making it one of the best hostels for walkers and hikers in the Dales. There are views over the fields from the rooms, and a shady garden planted with fruit trees; budget meals and packed lunches are available, plus local beer or a bottle of wine with your meal. They have also recently added two wooden pods that can sleep up to three people each on 3 futon beds with bedding, so leave you can the tent and sleeping bag at home.

The Owner Says

In the heart of the beautiful Yorkshire dales, all will love this comfortable hostel, surrounded by the classic limestone scenery the Pennines are known for. The newly-renovated rooms at YHA Malham make it the perfect base for everyone; families, groups and school trips. Only a short trip away you can find the famous Malham Cove, Malham Tarn and Gordale Scar. Also close by you can find the Pennine Way and Yorkshire Dales Cycle Way pass, making this a great option for those in search of a walking and cycling holiday. If you fancy a break from all the activities Malham has to offer then there is food served in the fully-licensed hostel, and a safe outdoor play area, fantastic for the children.
