Beautiful youth hostel. Our bedroom was immaculate. Everything was such good value for money. With every adult meal children eat free. There's a bar and the drinks are reasonably priced. It's a short walk from the town or a 5 minute bus journey. The people who work there are friendly and helpful. We will be returning very soon.

My husband, teenage son and I stayed here for one night in a family room. The room itself was spotlessly clean, the bed linen was fresh and the bunk-beds were very sturdy and comfortable. Each bed also had its own plug socket, small shelf and light, which were was convenient for charging phone overnight. The YHA communal areas were very... More

I stayed here about eight hours on 12 January 2014. My visit was short but nice. I was in a courtyard room on my own. I had a nice loo and a shower. The beds were comfortable and come with individual reading lights. The kitchen is nice. The staff were helpful when I lost my key card to the room.... More

Really impressed! Friendly staff and lovely rooms beds were very comfortable couldn't fault it. Didn't have any food so can't comment on that showers were. Lovely and hot and powerful and the whole place was immaculate!! Will defiantly be coming back. Would only say. A coat hanger or a few would be ideal in each room

The York YHA was highly recommended and certainly didn't disappoint. Very modern, well set out with very functional accommodation and a very good café serving breakfasts. All the staff were very keen enthusiastic and so helpful. Budget accommodation I will definitely be using again.

Ive stayed at many YHA hostels and others in the last few years, but none like this. This place has a bar, which also serves food.

Friendly and helpful staff - we were YHA first timers. New lounge is great central point and well laid out. We ate in most days and were pleased with the food. Down side - does not cater very well for disabled or for special diet needs
