The main hostel building is a beautiful Italianate mansion , set in private grounds, with some bedrooms located in a separate annexe building. YHA Bath is just a short walk from the centre of this vibrant World Heritage City with its many attractions. There's a licensed restaurant for you to relax in after a busy day exploring what the city has to offer.
