We had a fabulous New Years break at this hostel. There were over 100 of us with over half of those being kids it was a bit noisy and wild but the hostel staff took it in there stride, nothing phased them and they were polite and friendly at all times. The food was delicious but probably more choice required for evening meal, maybe it was limited with us being a large group.

The location was awesome and we look forward to our return trip next new year.

It's great to hear that your party had a fantastic time with us. New Year's Eve was a great night that both guests and staff enjoyed alike!

Nights like this just go to prove the versatility of our hostel, which can quite easily be transformed into a private party venue, be hired out exclusively for large groups and often plays host to our monthly live events and quiz nights.

It was a pleasure to have your group with us and we look forward to seeing you again at the end of the year.

Great staff and very welcoming. Breakfast only £4.99 and was good. Location good for Stratford or as a base. Bus stop right outside the building. Beds very comfortable and the main bathroom was large as we booked the x3 person room.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, I agree that our breakfast is a great way to start your day. Our restaurant is also open daily after breakfast service from 12 noon, to buth guests and the public alike, serving lunches, snacks and evening meals right through until 9pm.

As we were refurbished last year, all of our beds were replaced for our guests comfort, so I'm glad you enjoyed our modernised room.

Thanks for sharing your comments and we hope to see you again at Stratford-upon-Avon or at any of our nation-wide youth hostels

Excellent value, and the reception staff (especially Pauline) were very helpful and accommodating indeed, despite our check-in at a pretty late hour. The facilities were all as clean and convenient as I would expect of YHA - I would definitely recommend, especially considering how pricey Stratford can be. It's on a regular ish bus route into town - but leave plenty of time if you have a connection to make, the first bus we tried to get on bombed straight past us

I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and took advantage of our great breakfast offerings!

Your comments have been passed on to Pauline, our reception manager. All of our staff go to great lengths to ensure our guests are happy and well looked-after so thank you for hilighting this in your review.

Our reception is open from 7am until at least 12 midnight every day and arrangements can be made for check-ins outside of these hours.

Though the bus services are out of our control, we have timetables at reception and in the entrance hall, and can always ring a taxi for guests if they would prefer.

Thanks again for sharing your experience.

My partner and I stayed here as first timers as we had won a free meal at a nearby Golf Club. I was slightly worried about being in a hostel as some people probably would on an initial thought but I have to say it was absolutely wonderful and a bargain! My partner and I went for the private twin room (with bunkbeds) but I asked for a room with a double bed via email and we were upgraded for an extra £9 only, bargain. The room was great, shower was lovely and powerful too! Everything in the hostel was cleaned to perfection. The staff were all lovely and extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We have decided to become YHA members and visit all of the YHA hostels! Looking forward to it :) We are both aged 25 and 26.

Thank you YHA Alveston for making us feel welcome.

Im really pleased that your first YHA hostel experience was a positive one. Many people are surprised by what we have to offer. We are proud of our heritage, but YHA has moved with the times and with it, the preconceptions of what a hostel is or should be have started to dissolve as people become increasingly aware of our great value private room rates, hearty food and great drink prices.

Of course, we still have dormitory rooms throughout YHA for groups and travellers all at typical YHA good value and all in a unique and welcoming atmosphere.

I hope your new memberships help you to new discoveries and adventures at many of our amazing locations across England and Wales.

I booked Hemmingford's - the restaurant/bar at the YHA - on Saturday for a Christmas party for a sports club I'm a member of. There were 23 of in the party, and every one of us had a great time. The food was really good, and excellent value for money (£11.95 for 3 courses); the service was spot on, and nothing was too much trouble. The function room we booked for after the meal fitted out needs perfectly as well.
Most of the party commented on what an amazing venue the YHA is, and many will be going back to eat again, and will reccommend it to friends visiting the area as a place to stay.
Many thanks to everyone at Stratford YHA for a brilliant night.

It was an absolute pleasure to have your group with us! Thank you for your review, Hemmingford's- our fully licensed restaurant and bar is open to the public as well as guests staying at the hostel. It is also available for private hire and large functions, and as you mentioned, we also have a function room available for private hire.

Thanks again and hopefully we will see some of you back in the near future.
