About YHA Manchester

State-of-the-art facilities

YHA Manchester has state-of-the-art facilities and fab access to the city centre – why would you stay anywhere else? Whether you’re here for a science conference or indulging in our vibrant music scene, our hostel is well-equipped to welcome school trips and groups. Expect modern essentials like free Wi-Fi and 24 hour reception (always staffed), plus three meeting rooms with projectors and flipcharts for study. 

Our colourful hostel sits on Potato Wharf and boasts a comfy TV room (with beanbags no less) and a stylish licensed bar to start a big night out, after which you'll be able to enjoy access via a secure key system. If you’re peckish after all the shopping/dancing/learning, head to our bold dining room for tasty group catering including breakfast, packed lunch and dinner.

Schools and budding engineers can have a week of discovery in the Science City, with attractions like the Museum of Science and Industry on our doorstep. Sports fans will also be spoilt for choice, with iconic landmarks like Old Trafford to thrill them. There are some awesome activities nearby too – how about trying something different like windsurfing, skiing and BMX less than 10 miles away.
