Indie hostel heaven - best UK independent hostels - Cool Places to Stay in the UK

Indie hostel heaven

It's not all about the official YHA and SYHA in the UK – there's also a growing number of very cool independent hostels right across the country, offering budget accommodation in some very special places. From farm stays to surf spots, and hiking hostels to woodland hideaways, let Cool Places show you some of the best indie hostels in the UK. Some are very cool indeed, with a keen sense of style and creature comforts, from chill-out rooms to wood-burning stoves. In others, the accommodation might not be luxurious – think bunk rooms and shared facilities – but for a budget stay with people steeped in local knowledge, all these independently owned hostels can't be beat. They're especially good for families and groups, who can often book out the entire place for a celebratory weekend away.
