Situated in rural Kent, YHA Medway is opposite Capstone Farm Country Park. This traditional Oast house is also just 10 minutes’ drive from Chatham’s Historic Dockyard Trust Museum. The Youth Hostel offers both private rooms and dormitory accommodation and has lots of character - look out for exposed beams and beautiful brickwork.

Guests are welcome to relax in the ambient communal lounge and make use of the self-catering kitchen, we've got a garden full of colourful planters and picnic benches outside too. YHA Medway is well located accommodation for winter sports at Chatham ski centre, historic Rochester, Chatham Dockyard and the Kent Downs.

The Hostel

YHA Medway offers 52 beds set across 15 rooms:

1 x single
4 x twin (dorm bed for two – skylights, no windows)
1 x triple (double bed and top bunk – window)
6 x 4 bed (2 x bunk bed – skylights/no windows)
2 x 5 bed (bunk beds – 1 x skylight and 1 with windows)

We've recently given YHA Medway a bit of love and attention and have spruced up the bathrooms, redecorated the bedrooms and made the communal areas in this cosy home-from-home warmer and even more inviting.
