I stayed at the Safestay York for five nights in February. The reason for my trip was of leisure to explore York and the county of Yorkshire Location -about 5 minutes walk from the train station. 10-15 minutes roughly to the city centre. There's a range of bars and restaurants nearby and a greater selection in the city centre. Facilities... More

My first impression is that it's a very secure place, you need a key card to get into the front door or be buzzed in. I arrived just as the reception staff were changing staff so had to wait 10 min do be checked in. The place has very modern decor, and lots of stairs. Rooms were okay, I liked... More

Nice place. The individual courtains for the beds are a great idea, as this gives us some privacy. Two points are less good: the shower water was a little cold and there is not places for sociability. But the hostel is very good, clean and good price.

One of the best hostels I have been to, clean, friendly and affordable. I would recommend it to anyone. The only problem was the club near by is pretty loud till early in the morning, but curtains around the beds block out a lot of the noise and give you privacy.

Good location, but if you want to have a decent time and meet other travelers, I would highly suggest going elsewhere. There is one common room, but they have crazy restrictions on hanging out in there and because of all of the cameras and thin walls, you feel like you are under a microscope even when you are just trying...

This was a good, clean hostel. The location and price are both pretty good. The bathroom is small and subject to flooding, but there is one equally as good right down the hall to use as well. We had some interesting experiences during our stay, but all of that was due to roommates, not something the hostel had control over.... More

I had a great stay here! The rooms are clean and tidy and the beds are actually comfortable!! Was also great with the curtains around the beds, gave some privacy which is great when in a 12 bed dorm. The rooms were warm and the staff were really helpful and friendly. The location is also great, only less than 1km... More

Great location and easy to York station. We could check in quickly and the staff is friendly to tell us some tips. The room is bigger than we thought and tidy to live comfortably. If I went to York I will still choose it.

First of all: the house in which the Hostel is situated is very cool. I was impressed with the style and the historical background (which can be read about on various panels in the hostel). It just does not seem quite like a hostel more like a really cool hotel ;) And - even though I had a lot of... More
