So my first trip to England ends with the feeling of getting a bit connected to this place. In the two weeks before of our holiday I haven’t have this. Thankyou.
What a fantastically homely place to stay!
…the only hostel i’ve ever been to with a moral tone! Very spacious and charming…
A retreat of authenticity and integrity!
Thank you for an awesome time. Love the bunkbed room and even liked the deluxe muesli!
Thank you for a fantastic visit – we’re leaving feeling relaxed and revived.
Perfect – can’t think of anything that would make this place better.
Brilliant hostel in a stunning location.
Thank you so much for sharing this great place! It is so evident that much thought and care has gone into the planning of this space. We really appreciate your kindness and helpfulness in navigating the area.
Lovely clean, modern & comfortable rooms with great staff and excellent location…
The best hostel experience ever!
Thank you for allowing us to stay in such a lovely environment, you were so kind to us and we all had a great time, especially me, the birthday girl. This was the best birthday ever!
Super friendly, clean and happy, made us feel right at home.
I’m leaving here with a lot of vibrancy and things to think about… and an expanded reading list. Kind, thoughtful people have created a warm, kind, conscious living environment for all of their guests…
A fantastic haven after day three of the punishing Pennine Way.
Very friendly, very well organised. You helped make my stay in Hebden Bridge a wonderful, memorable experience. The books! The maps on the walls! The lovely rooms! The local information! Splendid.
We’ve adored our visit – wouldn’t change a thing in this beautiful hostel!
We’ve had a fantastic time at the hostel. The rooms are really comfy and the kitchen has everything we could need. Such a great place in a fab location.
If only every guest house was this nice!
Loved every minute of our stay, great place, great position, great company…
What a fab hostel, one of the best I’ve stayed in – and I’ve stayed in many!
Interesting, innovative, friendly, comfortable.
Best hostel EVER! You guys are awesome!
Peaceful, comfortable place with wonderful ethos and values. Love walking barefoot on the wooden floors. Comfy bed too. Welcoming and kind hosts. Could have spent all morning reading the maps on the walls!
You’ve opened our eyes to the hostel experience! Loved it!
Excellent value, friendly and comfortable – a jewel in the Pennines…
Thank-you for a lovely lovely break away from life in the fast lane…
This is a special, thoughtful place.  Thank you.
Peaceful, warm, cheerful, with fun hosts too…
Fantastic oasis in Hebden, great welcome and great facilities.
I appreciated the friendly atmosphere and clean facilities. A beautiful and quiet place.
Thanks for making my first night in the UK feel like home. You made me feel so warm and welcome – really just a fantastic evening.
Beautiful rooms and lots of good reading material – we will be back…
Never slept so well in my life.  Thank you.
Only been here one day, it has amazed me, I don’t want to leave.
Beautiful, friendly place. Nicely hidden-away. Glad I found it. Lovely overnight on my Pennine Way trip.
Many thanks for the warm welcome and helpful advice. The spotless condition of the hostel and Zen-like atmosphere was a total pleasure.
Everything is so well organised and the ambience is relaxed, friendly and welcoming. A lovely area for walking, cycling, exploring and industrial archeaology. Also found Incredible Edible quite incredible!
Very peaceful, what a treat!
A very special place… comfortable, clean, incredibly friendly, in a lovely old building in a very special town.  Couldn’t have asked for more…
Thanks for a great stay, could not have been more friendly and helpful.  The room was large, clean and comfortable, we will definitely be back.
Such a welcoming, gorgeous space – inside and out. Really friendly and helpful staff – nothing too much trouble.
One of the nicest hostels I’ve stayed in for years. Love the quiet reading room. Lovely vibe. Good room design.
Rooms clean and practical, hospitality great, free breakfast fantastic!
A hostel as lovely as the people who run it – an oasis…
Although we only stayed one night you were so lovely and welcoming and helpful. The room was amazing. Love the colours and the little touches, like the notice boards. And love how we have to take our shoes off!
A delight to sleep in comfort in a hostel run with such ethics…
Best night’s sleep in many years. Thank you.
Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable, hospitality was second-to-none, now ready to face the Pennine Way again…
Walking John of Groats to Land’s End.  This is the best place i’ve stopped in a long while.
My negative opinion about hostels has been replaced with a positive one.  A very lovely place.
A wonderful hostel experience with extra-comfortable beds…
Excellent stop-over for Pennine Way walkers. Great accommodation and a welcome that puts a spring in your step.
Brilliant hosts and a great place…
Excellent, friendly, informative, comfortable.  Will visit again…
Even better second-time-around!
Awesome hostel – love the reading room full of Terry Pratchett…
Hebden Bridge is beautiful and magical, Mama Weirdigan’s is the icing on the cake…

Group Booking Review: Whittington GP Vocational Training Scheme from London

…have had great residential courses here for four years in a row. The setting is beautiful with easy access to country walks. The hostel has comfortable accommodation with a spacious sitting room suitable for both eating and meeting. Excellent  pubs and restaurants in the idiosyncratic little town 5 minutes walk down the hill.

Our groups have always thoroughly enjoyed their visits. The management is helpful, flexible and never obtrusive. The whole place is spotlessly clean.
I would highly-recommend Hebden Bridge Hostel to any group looking for  a venue for a really enjoyable residential course in self-contained, well-equipped comfortable premises in a country setting, easily accessible from urban centres.’

Group Booking Review: Padma Yoga from Lincolnshire

“We have used the hostel at Hebden Bridge for our annual Spring Yoga Retreat for the last two years. I found it by recommendation and was surprised by just how clean and comfortable the hostel is compared to others I’ve stayed in. Privately run, it feels like a home away from home, with all the personal touches you might expect in someone’s home… just on a larger scale.

Dave, Emma & the whole crew always go out of their way to accommodate our needs and to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Communication is fast and friendly and nothing feels too much trouble. The hostel is fully equipped and there are lots of thoughtful touches to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable.

As a venue for a retreat weekend, it offers the perfect combination of accommodation, teaching space, kitchen facilities and space to chill out. We cater for 16 people and with a little refinement this year found it worked really well. We’ve just re-booked for a third year and have built a reputation on offering a fabulous retreat in a really lovely place. Everyone that joins us loves the hostel and can’t believe it’s just that. Personally, it’s a lovely space to teach in, light and airy, lovely and warm, and it holds the amazing energy of the groups that stay here. It’s a real credit to Dave & Emma.”
