YHA: purpose-built in 1995, the YHA Manchester enjoys a canal-side location close to the heart of the rejuvenated city centre. Ideally situated for a city break, it's within easy reach of some of the best shopping, restaurants, cinemas, concert halls, museums and theatres in northern England. It's hard to narrow down just what to do but don't miss the Manchester United museum and stadium tour and the Trafford Centre. Premium rooms are available.
