Getting negatives out of the way first; the wifi is only usable in the common areas, and there's a lot of noise from a nearby club. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Ace York. The beds are comfortable, and linen, etc. is provided. The staff were always incredibly approachable and friendly, and the free breakfast goes a... More

I booked this hostel for my hen night with 28 guests aged between 24 and 67. We used the hostel facilities to have a tea party in the afternoon and then we had a life drawing class in the basement! We booked out all the rooms so didn't have to share with randoms! Staff were friendly and accomodating, hostel was... More

It is all too easy to judge a hotel or restaurant on one very good or bad experience and to give an accurate picture of what to expect you need to either visit at different times of the year, on different days or look at reviews from people who have done. I'm moving to York with work and have been... More

I stayed at the Ace York Hostel with a group of friends and my first impression was a good one. The Hostel was very clean and the staff were very helpful. However after a full day in York and an Indian Meal from the restaurant across the road we were ready for a good nights sleep and subsequently we were... More

This place is clean and everything you would expect of a hostel. Staff very nice, bathroom small but perfectly formed, beds comfy everything was fine. My initial impression was that I would stay again. However, the website's subtle mention of the noise that may disturb children is misleading, as it was too noisy even for adults. I have children and... More

We decided to try out a hostel as we couldn't get a hotel in York for less than £50 per person so this worked out at half the price! As there were 8 of us we booked a dorm for 8 and the reception were kind enough to allocate us all together. You are first of all struck by the... More

I loved this hostel and wished I could have stayed longer. Staff were so welcoming, the room (10 bed dorm) was huge and not to mention the building itself is gorgeous. The mattress and pillow were so comfy, I had a great night's sleep. Breakfast was good and included in the price. The common room downstairs has lots of couches.... More

York, is one of the most haunted cities in Europe. But your not going to be frightened by the accommodation and hospitality of this, 'hostel'. In fact, the very term hostel, is barely fitting for this large imposing, Georgian building. Before you enter, throw out any preconceived ideas of a hostel being in a dilapidated ,ageing building,with dirty mattresses and... More

I recently had a "hen weekend" in this hostel and was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and quality of the rooms. The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble for them. I am the wrong side of 40 but the hen and her friends are all 20 and 30 somethings so I was expecting cheap and cheerful. I... More

Trying to organise 21 hens over a weekend was similar to herding cats, however Brian and his team were extremely patient and helpful from the initial enquiry until our departure. They let our group have sole use of the games room while we played our hen do games and let us use their DVD player. The drinks were SO cheap!... More
