About Hull Trinity Backpackers

The building at 51-52 Market Place is a house from the Georgian era – 1807. The early Twentieth Century saw the opening of the Gaiety Picture House on this very site between 1911 and 1913: seating 600 people in the stalls and 100 in the small balcony. Shortly after it became a music hall until 1934, renamed the Playgoers from 1928. The building has stories to tell from the 1940s too.

So for those of an artistic persuasion, you’d be staying in a building of rich historical interest. Few pictures survive of that time, but we’re busy at Trinity Backpackers trying to find archive images showing how things used to be…

A Building With A Metal Gate

The building existed over many years as the likes of a chandlers shop, rehearsal space, storage site, becoming part of the indoor market site in the 1990s, our next door neighbour today. TRINITY MARKET HULL -A place to visit for fresh foods, drinks and somewhere itself having undergone complete renovation in 2017.

This building opened as a hostel in 2014: since being taken on and refurbished to what you see today as Trinity Backpackers in 2017. Glenn and team provide an independent place to stay, rest, take a drink, in the heart of Hull’s Historic Old Town. We welcome you to come and help make that happen…
