Caroline White, Chief Executive of YHA (England and Wales), explained: “As an organisation YHA has come a long way in recent years and this award recognises our progress in becoming an outstanding accommodation provider. More and more individuals and families are discovering not only what great value accommodation we have, but the overall experience we provide.”

Many hostels now boast private en-suite rooms, restaurants and bars and some even have honeymoon suites! YHA London Central was even recently praised for its comfort, location, great value and facilities in the French edition of the international ‘lifestylist’ magazine for women.
