Stayed here for a full week for a work seminar. Staff were fantastic- always friendly and professional and accommodating to any of our needs. Specifically the food was great and the place felt like home after one night.

We would never stay here again. On Saturday night the whole place was taken over for an all night party. Music shouting and screaming until 4am. Completely out of control. Not what you'd expect from YHA.

I have recently been staying at YHA Medway for 2 nights a week to reduce my commute/ time/fuel costs. I have enjoyed the home from home feel. The feel of the hostel is professional but somehow manages to stay very relaxed., The staff also make you feel welcome. Fantastic value for money , a hot shower , a place to...

As a weekly guest at YHA Medway, I have never been disappointed. This hostel has been a complete sanctuary in an otherwise quite challenging area of Kent. Reassuringly warm, homely, welcoming and peaceful, the hostel is impeccably well cared for. One important aspect to note is that the hostel is a little out of town, so if you are a...

I was so happy to have found this gem tucked away close to where I grew up. I immediately felt welcome from the minute I arrived, and the christmas tree and festive lights really cheered me up (as I was spending christmas away from my family). The hostel was clean and well kept, and my room was warm despite how...

A friend recently recommended YHA hostels and we weren't disappointed. Clean and comfortable beds with a double and bunks for kids, perfect for a family. Minimalistic with no fuss. Exactly what we wanted. Hostel doesn't open until 5pm which isn't mentioned so had to wait around but made the most of the great location with Capstone country park on the...

Just a quick weekend away, we chose instead of staying in Rochester , to come to the local YHA MEDWAY. . WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED!!!! A further few minutes on the train and a short taxi ride and you arrive opposite the local country park a mere 2.2 miles from the station at Gillingham. We booked in advance to what...

A small hostel opposite Capstone Country park. The communal areas offer a place to rest, eat drink and socialise. The park opposite provides you with the opportunity to stretch the legs. Easy reach of jn4 M2 The rooms are small, and the toilets (clean and in good working order) are a windy way from some of the bedrooms. Plenty of...

We visited the south of England within two weeks with a family of four and stayed mainly in hostels by the YHA. This hostel situated in a traditional Kentish Oast house was very nice for a stay for three nights, with good connection both by car and by train to London. You better need a car or come by bike,...
