Best Blackpool Hostels

Top tips for finding the perfect Blackpool hostel

Travelers looking to book a hostel in Blackpool should first be aware that most hostels in this city are more similar to budget hotels. Very few offer large dormitory rooms, but several have rooms suitable for three to four people. This can be a distinct advantage for small groups or those looking for sleeping privacy but who want to enjoy amenities like community lounges, where meeting new people is fun.
Most hostels in Blackpool are located very centrally, meaning that budget-conscious travelers can enjoy inexpensive accommodations in addition to saving money on public transportation. Most hostels are located around 1-1.5 mi from popular attractions like Blackpool Tower and Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and most are also conveniently located for the railway and coach stations. While several are close to the beach, it is important to note that there are no hostels in Blackpool with direct sea views.
Among the best hostels in Blackpool for groups are The Winning Post and the Nelcon Hotel, both of which have a variety of room sizes and setups available. The Nelcon Hotel offers quadruple rooms with shared bathrooms, while The Winning Post has large family rooms that sleep up to 2 adults and 3 children or 4 adults, along with private bathrooms. Hostel Backpackers Blackpool also offers larger dormitory rooms containing up to 8 beds. Community areas are highlights of both Hostel Backpackers Blackpool and The Winning Post.
Couples looking for a hostel in Blackpool are in luck: most of the hostels in this city offer inexpensive private rooms. Some come with shared bathrooms, but properties such as The Winning Post and Mount Mellory also have the option of booking a private bathroom. Many hostels like these provide in-room amenities such as bed linens, coffee-making supplies, and televisions, meaning that couples can have a private, comfortable stay for a fraction of the price of a hotel.
