Canterbury Hostel

Hostel Canterbury

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Set close to the cathedral, YHA Canterbury is a great base for exploring the Garden of England, the Kent coast or the Pilgrims Way. Near to the ferry ports and only one hour from London, this really is a great stop over point.

The interior decor is brimming with personality and the hostel offers a café bar, a self-catering kitchen and dining room. There is also a small shop for guests and pretty garden where our Deluxe Cabins can be found.

You’ll find the Roman-walled city of Canterbury crammed with history and culture. Attractions include the cathedral, abbey, museums, guided tours and theatres - great for a cheap city break or weekend away. The hostel is within easy reach of the North Downs Way and Pilgrims Way.

Ich fahre die Jugendherberge in Canterbury gerne an, weil sie sehr nah am Hafen von Dover liegt. Der Fußweg in die City und zur Kathedrale dauert ca. 10 Minuten. Das Haus selber ist sehr schön renoviert worden, auch wenn die Toiletten/Duschen außerhalb der Zimmer sind. Viele Zimmer sind sehr geräumig, doch diesmal war es etwas eng zu viert. Das Frühstück ist eines der Besten in Englands Jugendherbergen!

obwohl wir nur eine (kurze) Nacht in der YHA Canterbury waren, hat uns dieser Start in unseren Südengland-Aufenthalt gut gefallen; mein 10jähriger Sohn erklärte den Frühstücksspeck zum mit Abstand besten, den er je gegessen habe; er bedauert heute, nicht die "baked beans" probiert zu haben
