Check-in and Check-out times
On the day of arrival, the Hostel is available from 4.00pm. On the day of departure you are asked to vacate by 10am.
Whether you love traditional seaside arcades or epic coastal scenery, the North Yorkshire town of Scarborough has something for everyone. Don’t miss the atmospheric castle on the cliff, the educational SEALIFE Centre, the endless walking and cycling opportunities, and the variety of cafes, pubs, restaurants and tearooms dotted around this vibrant town. Make YHA Scarborough your chosen holiday destination today.
The car park, which is in the hostel grounds can accommodate up to 10 cars.
From the town centre on the A165 to Whitby; after the roundabout near Peasholm Park follow the A165 up the hill, past Tesco Express, the Ivanhoe pub and Gulf Service Station. Go down the hill, over the bridge and then our driveway is at the end of the bridge on the other side of the road.
The turning to Scarborough Youth Hostel is immediately after the bridge on the left, but the turning is very sharp and it is much safer to signal right at the end of the bridge and turn in the concrete entrance as you begin to climb the hill, make a U turn and then come back down the hill to turn right into the hostel driveway.
If you are coming from the North, you should take the A165 coast road from the mini roundabout in Burniston. As you descend the hill into Scarborough (past the Scalby Manor Carvery) signal right and turn into the driveway just before the bridge.
