Hostels for families

Whether you go YHA or independent, there are some fantastic hostels in the UK these days – and if you think they're not for you and your family, think again! Youth hostels can be great for those looking for a budget break, as most have self-catering kitchens, laundry services and other useful money-saving facilities – especially good for families with young children. En-suite rooms are readily available, and with bunk-beds as standard, and wifi, games and books usually available, there should be no problem getting your kids into the swing of hostelling. There are also lots of hostels with tons of family friendly activities, either on site or in the vicinity, so for a bargain family holiday, hostels can be a really rewarding choice. Here's our Cool Places pick of the best hostels in the UK for families of all ages, from Cornwall to the Lake District and East Anglia to Scotland.
