Lovely hostel with friendly and helpful staff. We rang to say we would be arriving later than expected and this was fine. The hostel was clean, well organised and welcoming and it is in fantastic surroundings. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean and tidy. Thanks for a lovely stay, we will certainly be back for a proper holiday!

This really can't fail to meet most travellers' criteria - it's a recently refurbished hostel in a particularly scenic and convenient spot. We were visiting the various Ironbridge Museums over a period of a few days so a couple of nights here was just the ticket. Good self-catering facilities and lounge right next door for the kids to watch a...

I booked a private room for two as an overnight break on a long journey expecting just to get a bed for the night, but ended up with a huge 6 bed ensuite room which was very comfy (maybe slightly too warm?) The hostel is set in a stunning part of the UK and it seems there is so much...

Writing this review as I am about to check out and I have to say that I have absolutely love my time here. The staff is amazing, friendly, and very helpful.

Did not stay here but used the cafe as we were at the Coalpoirt China Museum which shares this campus. The service was great, the staff friendly and helpful, food and drinks very good and great value for money

Really enjoyed our stay here. We had a private room with own facilities. Typical YHA style - compact and functional. The building itself was brilliant. Two lounges, self-catering kitchen, laundry room and downstairs a nice cafe/restaurant. A very interesting area to visit.

Hi there and thanks for leaving this review. The YHA is housed in the former Coalport China Works which is a listed building and as such permitted alterations to the original features are limited. We do provide fans in all south facing rooms to aid ventilation but we did have some particularly hot weather during August this year.

“You could ask to overlook the park as opposed to the road. We didn't have wifi in our room, possibly too far away from hub.”

“This is a typical YHA hostel. It's basic, but it's clean, safe and a better experience to travelling than hotel-life, in our opinion.”
