YHA Ironbridge Coalport Reviews

Hostel Coalport - Ironbridge YHA is a warm, friendly, and social hostel that offers good value for money with clean rooms and easy access to the Ironbridge area. It's suitable for families, independent backpackers, and group travelers. The area itself will suit the outdoorsy sorts and people interested in exploring local history from the Industrial Revolution.

The Location

Situated in Jackfield, Hostel Coalport provides easy access to the Ironbridge Gorge and Coalbrookdale areas. A quaint little picturesque town that peppers both sides of the River Severn, with a collection of museums (most of them related to the manufacturing industries and the Industrial Revolution such as coal production, iron, and tiles), knick-knack shops, and coppices, Ironbridge has cemented its reputation as place of interest since its namesake bridge and surrounding areas were granted UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 1986.

Access to the hostel is easy by car or bike, however, like the rest of the Telford area, bus services are infrequent and patchy and serve only the main Ironbridge area. The reasonable prices of taxi services in Telford make up in part for the lack of other public transportation. Bike storage and car parking spaces are available.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Rooms are clean and well planned; the large windows from the ancient building -- the oldest surviving china factory in Coalport -- flood every room with light and add a sense of space to otherwise modest accommodation rooms. Showers and toilet facilities are conveniently located at every building corner. Both private, en suite rooms and shared dorms are available.

Common Spaces

An abundance of social spaces are available at this hostel, from the large restaurant on the downstairs floor, to the TV lounge room and games room on the first -- fully equipped not only with common board games but also a pool table and foosball table. Guests preferring to cook their own meals also have access to a fully functioning kitchen and adjoining dining room area. Other amenities include a library, an outside sitting area (during the summer), meeting rooms, and conference facilities.


The staff are friendly and accommodating and the hostel organises some group tours and activities. It's not inherently a noisy or party hotel, however, the brilliant social spaces and mix of room sizes would make it especially suitable for larger groups organising a fun, social getaway.
