Housed in the YHA Canterbury last week, we (45 persons) were really desappointed by the cold and unfriendly reception. No more possibilities to store our lugagges before entering the hostel before 15.00. At breakfast time, milk and so one were in short supply. Asking for adding goods seemed to be a whirlwind of activity and effort. It was the first...

First time we have stayed at a YHA, and would definitely stay at YHA Canterbury again. We had a family room, with ensuite toilet, shower and hand basin. Two sets of bunk beds. Room was small and cosy, but it was just a bedroom which is what anyone should expect. Staff were very helpful, polite and friendly especially at breakfast...

The accommodation was excellent and all facilities good. A room by the road could get a little noisy if you don't like traffic. Nice places to sit and read. The location is very convenient for the centre of Canterbury.

Had a nice stay in the Hobbit Lodges at the YHA. They were compact but adequate for our stay. The only issue we had was the little basin in the bathroom everytime you used it water sprayed all over the floor and there was no lock on the bathroom door or you couldn't lock the lodge door from the inside....

I genuinely don't make many review postings but I just wanted to say I was beyond humbled and amazed by the staff at YHA.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. It was a beautiful building with a beautiful wooden staircase. Everything was really clean and guests were friendly and I could have some nice chats in the kitchen in the evening and at breakfast time.

Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable rooms, hot showers and a nice lounge area to relax and meet people. The kitchen has everything you need and the entire hostel is kept super clean.
