The IOU Hebden Bridge Hostel is ten minutes walking distance above the town in a peaceful woodland setting, nestled into the hillside and part of the historic Birchcliffe Centre.

The Calder Valley and the South Pennines are well known for the outdoor activities offered on the moors, hills and rivers, but Calderdale also has a fast-growing reputation as a thriving arts community and cultural centre.  The Hostel is centrally located in the borough with easy access to explore the heritage and history of the region and to discover the towns of Halifax, Todmorden, Sowerby Bridge and of course Hebden Bridge with their growing food, arts and cultural scenes.
