    Location is Great!”

    We booked entire 4-bed dormitory with own toilet. Cons: The room is in the basement so it was very cold and only 1 heater provided. The bathroom is a bit small. It will be great if hostel can provide a pair of slipper in the toilet, hair dryer (currently only available in one of the shared toilet - only 1 unit as the other one is out of service), as well as a floor mat outside the toilet. Pros: The hostel is near to the train station and main attractions. There is a storage room in the Hostel which is an added value. We can store our luggage before we can check-in at 2pm and after check-out for FREE. The check out time is 10am which is quite early but it is okay as we went out early in the morning to explore York. The staffs were friendly. The guy staff was so nice and offered us to carry our luggage. In the common area, there are utensils and water boiler. Free WiFi in the room and public area makes everything convenient and easy. It is a good and nice place to stay.

    Beautiful ancient townhouse”

    The hostel is located inside the city walls, about 5 mins' walk from the train station. It's a very beautiful old townhouse with history, with a large common room downstairs. We booked a 4-bed room but was upgraded to an 8-bed room, which equals very large space. Our windows overlook a beautiful chapel and garden. The hostel staff is nice. Breakfast is good, although comprises mostly of croissant, ham and cheese, and milk and cereal. The only downside is the stairs - beware if you have heavy luggage, although the hostel staff may offer to carry it for you.

    The hostel is in the Micklegate area; the railway station is maybe 10-15 mins' walk away. Other tourist spots are also within walking distance. There's no lift so if you have a big bag it's a little inconvenient (although the night staff did offer his help when I arrived). The shared toilet in the dormitory is not cleaned everyday so that's also a bit uncomfortable. Other than that this hostel is a nice, safe, affordable place for single female travellers.

    Spent one night here to meet a friend and this is probably the biggest bed I've slept in in any backpacker/hostel :D Room was spacious with heaters available..also wall sockets are ample in the room. Staff were very friendly too! Only downside was the room beside was too noisy and them slamming the toilet door or shouting means we can hear them quite clearly Will return again if I ever come to York again!

    Overall this is a great hostel, just 5 minutes walk from the city centre and about 5 minutes from the station as well. The beds can be a bit shacky but are comfy to sleep on and have curtains for privacy. Our bathroom was ok but the toilet seat was broken so I used the communal one instead. It’s generally a clean, big hostel in a lovely historic building. I would definitely stay here when I next return to York which I absolutely loved!

    A bit noisy but wonderful room”

    The hostel is near the train station and most attractions and it is very near to groceries store. Curtain is installed in each bed to protect one's privacy so that we were not disturbed even when others light was on. There is washroom in each room and the washroom was clean and tidy as it is cleaned daily. However, as there is no hair dryer in each room, I had to walk to the third floor to use the hair dryer and it is not that user friendly (like you have to keep pressing it to make it work constantly). It should be noted that the postcode given on agoda may be wrong that when I entered the postcode on google map, I could not find the hostel though it was just a few blocks away from it.

    merits: good location, just a few min walk to downtown. Each bed with curtains to maintain privacy. Staff are overall nice & responsive, my room power supply was broken one night but fixed in the next day. things to improve: no lift but all rooms are upstairs. front doors are often found open, not a good image in security.

    Really cosy and kept clean, love the privacy curtain. Fantastic location. Should REALLY do something about the bathrooms - there are too few, and they are entirely too small (and not only in proportion to the rest of this vast mansion). The water sprays everywhere, and none have windows, so they all get immediately steamy and messy.

    Good place in York, especially if you have tight budget!”

    I got a bed in a mixed 10-bed dorm room. They basically have everything required for a hostel. Excellent location, very close to the train station and the centre. Staff was also very helpful. They may not let you in before normal check-in time, but there's a safe room if you wanna leave your luggage. I only stayed there 1 night so couldn't say anything much. Room was warm, bed was clean and comfy. Should have a lift since I had to carry my suitcase up 3 floors (although it didn't matter much). Wifi wasn't stable all the time. Shower was quite small and water wasn't warm enough. Kitchen should be more facilitated, at least a bigger fridge, a gas burner and some cookers, not just a microwave! Free water and juice anyway. I didn't have breakfast so can't say anything, though it smelled nice in the morning. Cheap room so I won't complain much!

    Can’t be beat for value and location. We were on a stag do and booked 2 x twins (bunks) 1 x double and a quad (2 x bunks) all with en suites and I have to say, it worked out £33 a man for a Saturday night in York and you just can’t beat that. Location is very central within the old city walls and loads of bars and restaurants right nearby. The on site bar is cheap and has a pool table. The staff are totally sound and very friendly. I wouldn’t stay here with my Mrs although there are en suite doubles but for a group night out in York I wouldn’t look anywhere else.
