We loved our trip to YHA Grinton Lodge so much that we decided we’d seek out another YHA on our recent trip to London. We plumped for YHA London St Paul’s, which handily enough, is a short walk from St Paul’s Cathedral. We had another good stay and we would highly recommend YHA to families like ours.
As a family of six, we can rarely find a hotel to suit our needs. We end up getting two standard rooms and have to sleep one adult and two children per room. Either that or upgrade to a very expensive suite.
Whenever we go away as a family, we tend to get a self-catering cottage, or we camp. But as much as we love camping, I don’t (and won’t) do it all year round. At Easter, the choice was between two rooms in a Travelodge on the side of the A1 in North Yorkshire, or to try a Youth Hostel from YHA. We decided it was time to give a youth hostel a go, and we are so glad that we did!
