In support of this aim, all bookings will include a temporary membership fee per person per night which is displayed as an inclusive rate. (Full, existing members of SYHA and HI using this booking engine are not entitled to a membership refund).

The young person/people, the parent/guardian and the other occupants of the room must be of the same gender.

SYHA advise that additional notice be given to the destination youth hostel when travelling with children, to ensure that suitable accommodation is available. Contact details can be found on your booking confirmation.

Liked: Warm welcome and local advice from staff on duty, in spite of being very busy because the hostel was fully booked. Spacious self catering kitchen.Very surprised to find that Millburn is SYHA run - not mentioned in the info anywhere! Staff were equally surprised that we had booked through Hostelbookers. But booking and paying the balance was quite straightforward; rate was the same.

Disliked: We didn't find a quiet room for reading/looking at maps after dinner - ended up in a large, comfortable but dimly lit TV room with youngsters watching TV.Girls had festooned our room with wet washing. Bumped my head on the ceiling tiles each time I clambered up onto the very high top bunk!

Liked: Had all the facilities we needed, large self catering kitchen and eating area, and a safe space for car parking. A little out of the centre of town, but not as far as I thought it would be after looking at other reviews.

Disliked: It was noisy in the corridor, and also through the walls of the room- a very excited school party, so not likely to happen all the time.
