The iFootpath Directory - YHA Blaxhall

Information for walkers in the UK

YHA Blaxhall

YHA Blaxhall makes a great base for exploring everything that the Suffolk coast has to offer. Comfortable and inviting, this former school is at the heart of the village, on the edge of Blaxhall Heath surrounded by wildlife and beautiful countryside. Curl up with a book in our cosy lounge, or relax on our garden picnic benches and enjoy being surrounded by flowers! The hostel sits on the edge of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, one of the most important areas for wildlife in the whole of Britain.

For bird watching, sea food, cycling and walking, YHA Blaxhall is a great option - ideal for family holidays and activity breaks. Just down the road from the world famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall, there’s so much to see and do, you’ll want to come back time and time again.

The Hostel

The site of a community recycling scheme, powered in part by solar energy and boasting a garden that encourages biodiversity, Blaxhall has some cracking credentials.

With 41 beds in a variety of room sizes, there is something for everyone at YHA Blaxhall. YHA Blaxhall has 41 beds arranged in 1 x 3 (double bed), 2 x 4 (bunk beds) and 5 x 6 bedded rooms (bunk beds). One of our 6 bed rooms has an en-suite, and there are showers and toilets available for everyone to use along the main corridor. We also have a disabled access washroom available.

The nearest shop is two miles away.


Located in the front garden of the Youth Hostel, our small (but perfectly formed!) camping area is great for quiet weekends in the great outdoors.

The hostel facilities are right on the doorstep and with your keycode (provided on arrival), you will have access to them 24 hours a day.

Important Information Campfires are strictly prohibited.

To book camping please call YHA Blaxhall directly on 01728 688206
