Here at YMCA Bath we offer backpackers an affordable city centre location in a choice of rooms fron dorms through to single rooms (+twins, triples and quad rooms).

We can accommodate over 200 people a night, 365 nights a year, so whether you are travelling alone, or in a big group; old, young or with children – we have the bed for you.

The YMCA is centrally located, just a stone’s throw away from all the major tourist attractions, tempting shops, sensational restaurants, pubs, clubs, award winning parks and Bath Rugby. If you want to be in middle of things, then the YMCA is the perfect location.

The old Victorian building is around 150 years old and overlooks the bustling Broad Street. It houses our dormitory accommodation for groups, back packers and holiday makers. The newer building houses the single, twin, triple and quad / family rooms.

All guests have access to single sex bathrooms throughout the range of accommodation; however we do not offer any en-suite rooms. All areas have secure access, ensuring your safety at all times.

Staff on the 24 hour reception are nearly all locals who know Bath inside out – so they can help you plan your stay, organise and book tours or recommend a place to eat or visit.
