Last month we welcomed UK explorer and traveller, Scott Tison to the hostel. We invited him to experience the YMCA as an option for those looking for affordable accommodation in Bath, with a city centre location! Here’s a small snippet of what he had to say. You can read the full article over on his blog.
Unique tips for the Solo Traveller
I often find myself in a city alone and depending on where it is it can be a minefield. I’ve used so many ways to meet like-minded people. Some of which I cover in Staying Connected and Meeting People Whilst Travelling.
Accommodation in Bath: YMCA Hostel
My first port of call is usually a good hostel, somewhere central, has a good atmosphere and can be my handy base for exploring the city. For Bath, look no further than the Bath YMCA. They offer a variety of rooms (including an en-suite double, always my choice), a state-of-the-art gym, breakfast, good wifi and social rooms to relax.
YMCA is a Hostel with a difference. The YMCA group is part of the largest Youth Charity in the world. Their work with young vulnerable people in the local area is incredible. Staying at this hostel quite literally puts a roof over the head of someone in need. During my stay I learned about their Nightstop and Daystop campaigns, and all the commendable work they do. From providing emergency accommodation, to longer term solutions, to guidance and counselling.
The Hostel features a huge gym and studio classes. If you’re local, gym membership starts at £29.95, including unlimited use of the gym and classes. If you’re going to join a gym, why not join one that helps a great cause too? All this right in the heart of Bath with all the attractions within walking distance.
