Due to open on 17th November this year, beds at the new YHA Brighton have now gone on sale at www.yha.org.uk.
Earlier this year YHA (England and Wales) received planning permission to transform Brighton’s former four-star Royal York Hotel on Old Steine into a 51 bedroom, 176-bed Youth Hostel.
The historic building is currently undergoing a sympathetic refurbishment that recognises the iconic building’s history as well as the YHA brand.
Once complete, the former Royal York Hotel will boast a fully refurbished ground floor and social spaces, conference and meeting room and redesigned reception and bar area. As well as a restaurant, YHA Brighton will also offer self-catering facilities with a dedicated dining area.
All bedrooms will have en suites, with the third floor of the building all being maintained as double bedrooms, suitable for families. The room configuration will ensure that YHA Brighton provides the great value, friendly accommodation for young people, families, groups and individuals that is synonymous with the YHA brand. Two-bed rooms start from as little as £45, four-bed family rooms are from as little as £65 per night and beds in shared rooms are from £14.50 per night.
Caroline White, Chief Executive of YHA (England and Wales), said: “The transformation of the Royal York Hotel building into a Youth Hostel not only brings it back into use but is an excellent use for such an historic and beautiful building. It brings life to the former hotel ensuring its long-term viability in Brighton.
“YHA is transforming the feel and energy of the Royal York Hotel building whilst ensuring its history is fully respected. Our refurbishment not only maintains the building’s heritage but brings it back into use for many more generations of local people and tourists to enjoy.
“We want to make sure that we continue to have world class hostels in fantastic locations and to make sure that as many people as possible know about what a great time they can have when they stay with us. We expect hundreds of young people to experience this fabulous property and the City of Brighton every year.”
The investment in YHA Brighton is part of YHA (England and Wales) capital investment plan. Since 2011 YHA has invested more than £22 million in its network, helping put further distance between the outdated public perception of Youth Hostels and the modern reality, which is proving particularly popular with young families looking for great value, child-friendly breaks.
