Welcome to the oldest YHA hostel still in operation - it opened in 1931! YHA Street is ideal for a Somerset activity break, including great routes for cycling and walking holidays. The charming Swiss-style chalet is surrounded by National Trust land overlooking the mystical Glastonbury Tor. Within easy reach of the Mendip Hills, Somerset Levels, Polden Hills and Glastonbury, Street is also home to Clarks shoes – great for bargains in the Clarks Village Retail Outlet. The hostel has many rooms ideal for families and it's easy to understand its continued appeal.
From a day of pure magic at Glastonbury Tor (believed to be home to the King of the Fairies), to a visit to the medieval Bishop's Palace in Wells - YHA Street has plenty to do. Family trips will love the Wookey Hole Caves just 11 miles away, home of the Witch of Wookey Hole – a human-shaped stalagmite that, according to legend, is the form of a witch turned to stone by a monk from Glastonbury!
YHA Street has a total of 28 beds in both private and dorm rooms. We have an open plan dining and seating area where you can relax or eat meals, and a self-catering kitchen.
Hire the whole place
This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you. We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire. You can check availability for Exclusive Hire on our dedicated website, or use our live chat service for more information.
The hostel is self-catering only so bring some provisions with you - you can prepare and cook up a storm with two fridges, one mini freezer, one big chest freezer, one stand alone oven with hobs and grill, another four hobs, a kettle, two toasters and two microwaves. Plus, there's lots of pots, pans, crockery and cutlery to enjoy your grub inside or out!
We have a tiny shop selling a few products like soft drinks and chocolate bars. If you're visiting Wells on a Wednesday or Saturday, why not swing by the marketplace and pick up some local produce to cook! Alternatively, there are plenty of restaurants and pubs to choose from in Street (2 miles away), it's about a 40 minute walk to town.
