When people start staying at a Travelodge or Premier Inn for far less, it will sadly only be a matter of time before the yha will become irrelevant, to all but school parties.. The days of dormitories could be a thing of the past and the yha need to wake up to the fact single travellers need accommodation without paying £350 per night.They seem to have a fatalistic attitude, which is understandable in these testing times but would they rather die a slow death than let people through their doors? I appreciate they are ‘looking after us’ but surely as adults we can look after ourselves, we all know the procedures, we have survived thus far, I don’t wish to be over protected, thank you. If the Premier Inns can open then why not the yha’s? They don’t even let you camp in your own tent, now that is silly, half the country has been camping throughout the summer months! I would even sign a piece of paper saying I would stay ‘at my own risk’ if that would stop them being sued if I caught anything, which if truth be told, is probably what this whole fear thing is really all about.
