Email is our communication-of-choice –


You can call us on 01422 843183 and we’ll answer in the ‘open’ season during our Reception hours: 9-10am and 5-8pm. If we’re not able to get to the phone leave a message and we’ll contact you as soon as we can.


Whatever the time of year, we’ll get back to you pretty sharp-ish. When we’re ‘open’ definitely within 24 hours and usually much quicker than that.


We do have a mobile you can  try 07394 443 908 – but it is not staffed all the time. 


You can write to us at:
Hebden Bridge Hostel
The Birchcliffe Centre
Hebden Bridge
West Yorkshire

(we’re mildly chuffed that the address can be shortened to Hebden Bridge Hostel, HX7 8DG and it’ll still get here…) contact contact

For walkers & explorers, you’ll find us at OS grid reference SD 995 274.


We’re approximately 2 miles from the Pennine Way where it crosses the A646 at Callis Bridge, but only 500 metres from where the new “Hebden Bridge Loop” on the Pennine Way crosses Hebden Water by way of the eponymous 500 year-old ‘Hebden Bridge’.


Satnavs – use our postcode HX7 8DG to find us, however the carpark is not on Chapel Avenue (a narrow cul-de-sac, impossible to turn a car around in). You want the next left, about 50m after Chapel Avenue (just after The Birchcliffe Centre, an old Baptist chapel). If you pass (or turn into) Sandy Gate you’ve gone too far.


We share the offroad carpark with another venue. When we know the carpark is going to be busy, we’ll mark pre-arranged spaces with “Hostel Guests Only” cones. Be sure to let us know if you’re coming by car so we can reserve a space for you – and please don’t take a coned-off spot unless you’ve arranged it in advance.


From the Railway Station (less than one mile/approx 15 minutes walk):

  • Follow the only road out of the station carpark.
  • At the T-junction turn left onto Burnley Rd (towards town).
  • Take the next right signposted Keighley.
  • Right again onto Birchcliffe Rd (it’s signposted) and steeply uphill.
  • After a sharp right-hand bend look left: go past the turnings into Edward St and Chapel Avenue; next building is The Birchcliffe Centre (an old Baptist Chapel).
  • We are behind the Chapel and can be accessed on foot via the main Chapel gates.


Hebden Bridge is less than an hour by train from both Leeds and Manchester Victoria. find find find

If arriving by coach, Halifax is the nearest place you may be dropped, though Bradford or Leeds are more likely. Bradford and Halifax are both on the Leeds-Hebden Bridge train line.

Local buses to/from the train station – the stop is directly outside The Birchcliffe Centre. Take the Dodd Naze Circular from (or to) the station: One way around the circle will take you directly to the Hostel (get off at the Birchcliffe Centre, before you reach Dodd Naze). The other way around the circle will (it is rumoured) take you a very scenic route via Old Town and Dodd Naze to the Birchcliffe Centre and the Hostel.

Walking the Pennine Way?

No matter whether you are walking from the South or from the North, the Hebden Bridge Loop on the Pennine Way was invented just for you. Instead of the trudge along the main road / canal from Callis into Hebden, you can now follow the waymarked HB Loop path, which is an altogether more scenic and pleasant route that keeps to footpaths and takes in Horsehold and Heptonstall along the way. There’s a website that has a lot more detail (click the logo) and we’ve always got the maps, free, at the hostel.
