A major city for tourism, Bath has many attractions which are perfect for a weekend of sight-seeing. Our Italiante mansion is a home-from-home and boasts its own stunning architecture - perfect low cost accommodation in Bath. Take in a show at one of Bath’s five theatres, soak up the culture in one of its art galleries or museums or simply wander around the beautiful streets, taking in the sights and sounds of this beautiful area.

Bath has more museums in one square mile than most other cities in the world can boast. Walk between a whopping seventeen sites of historic interest in the city centre. Highlights include the museum at No.1, in the ginormous Georgian Royal Crescent, the Holburne Museum and the Jane Austen Centre.

Bath also offers a vibrant nightlife scene, with entertainment to suit everyone. Live music thrives here- from smooth jazz to hard rock and everything in between, you’re bound to find something you love in this city. There are even regular open mic nights in the local bars, so you can have a go yourself.

All of this makes for comfortable, convenient city break accommodation perfect for weekends away. YHA Bath is a listed building and welcomes all types of guests. However, if you have a child under the age of 3 years or any other special requirement, please mention at the time of booking and we will try and move you to the most suitable room available.
