YHA unveils fruits of £580k investment in Canterbury Hostel
The YHA hostel on New Dover Road in Canterbury has always been popular with visitors to the city, providing a great budget base from which to explore everything the area has to offer. However, for the last three-and-a-half months, regular guests have been forced to make other plans.
Of course, the closure of the hostel was for a good cause; it has undergone a huge refurbishment which has transformed the already-popular hostel into state-of-the-art accommodation. The fact that this investment has cost the YHA some £580,000 shows just what a key part of the company’s portfolio it is.
The change within the building has been dramatic, but while you may be paying hostel prices, you should still be able to enjoy a bit of luxury on your break. The hostel now boasts a brand-new café bar, with bright and comfortable communal areas that are perfect for relaxing in – and maybe even making a few new friends! Added to this is a fully-equipped, modern kitchen with all mod cons that is capable of catering for all guests.
Speaking of which, up to 74 visitors can now be accommodated across 15 fully-refurbished bedrooms – seven of which benefit from en-suite facilities. While everything inside is new, the renovation has not changed the beautiful external faces of the building, which are some of its most enticing features. Of course the location hasn’t changed either; guests are still within easy reach of the North Downs Way and Pilgrims Way, and just a pleasant stroll away from the city centre itself.
YHA Canterbury reopens for business on March 11th, just in time for the beginning of spring – what better time for a new start? The hostel is already taking advance bookings, however, so book yours before February 28th and receive a further 20 per cent off your stay.
