We looked for accommodation in reasonable travel distance of the NEC for our family of 4 and were delighted with this find. 35 minutes NE of the NEC and just off the main transport routes, it was perfect for us. We stayed in a private 4 bed (2 x 2 bunk bed) room with our own bathroom. The room had...

We stayed here just one night but know we will return because this YHA truly rocks! We had a double on-suite with a door direct to the car park Kitchen was brilliant, everything worked, all clean. Staff really friendly and happy, nothing to much trouble. One niggle.. please oil or replace the door hinge leading to the rooms!

We took over the hostel for two nights for a family reunion and the arrangements all worked commendably. The food was good, the bar was good, the rooms were adequate and modern, with good security and plenty of space for indoor and outdoor activities. The main room was a bit noisy (or was it we who were very noisy?). Fortunately...

Thanks for the great review! Yes, the main area can be a little noisy with lots of people in it but hopefully it didn't hinder your experience of YHA National Forest. Nice to hear that you liked the hostel and hopefully you had a great family reunion - we hope to see you all again soon!

All I can't say is smiles smiles, the staff Yvonne(day) and Sam(evening) were helpful, friendly, a joy and exceptional customer service. Nothing was too much trouble, so polite, helpful, engaging. The Accom was clean tidy and a great over night option. A must. Thank you both for helping and looking out for me and my injury Smiles all around....

This is our third trip here for our annual staff conference and we have always been very well looked after. The conference room facility was ideal for our needs and we were kept well supplied with tea, coffee and biscuits throughout.
