Hebden Bridge Hostel

Hebden Bridge Hostel

Situated on the upper edge of Hebden Bridge, and backed by beautiful woodland, Hebden Bridge Hostel occupies an elegant building adjoining a Grade II listed former Baptist Chapel. The hostel’s green and leafy setting is a hint towards one of the activities it’s best situated for: exploring the paths that lead almost from the front door through the woods and moors that surround the town, including the walk up to National Trust site Hardcastle Crags, with its flagship sustainable building, Gibson Mill. In fact, early starts are encouraged by the hostel; listed under the organisation’s ‘quirks’ is the closure of the main hostel from 10am to 5pm, with guests asked to vacate their rooms during these hours.

Another rule particular to Hebden Bridge Hostel is that quiet is requested after 10pm, silence from midnight. This is not a party spot, but a peaceful, laid-back place; the self-service kitchen is exclusively vegetarian, there’s a sheltered patio with seating, and a cosy snug complete with books and games. Prices include organic tea and coffee and a light breakfast of organic cereal, as well as the use of bike racks and parking spaces on request. There’s even a tap for muddy boots and wheels. With bedrooms including dorms, family and friends rooms, as well as twin and private rooms, Hebden Bridge Hostel is clear about the kind of stay guests can expect, and who the approach and atmosphere will suit.

If you’re looking for somewhere eco-conscious, early-rising and chilled, this is a great place to stay – particularly on a budget. As well as the trails leading out of town, guests are offered a free copy of the Hebden Bridge Dining Guide, which gives an introduction to the best places to eat and drink locally. For our money, these include the Grilled Cheese Booth, for a changing selection of grilled cheese sandwiches, Woody’s Pizza for New York slice ‘pies’ and The Fox and Goose for a pint after a long walk. Stay at the Hebden Bridge Hostel, and there’s all this and more to explore.
