Comfy beds and staff were nice. Only issue was a few 'undesirable' guests in the dorm but thats not the hostels fault. Overall, good experience. Would recommend. Great location and close to lots of bars and restaurants.

Close to city center within a stone's throw, and has many pubs and restaurants on the same street. I loved the decoration of the hostel, made me feel very comfortable. Wish there was more space and opportunity for guests to mingle though.

One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. Would recommend renting an entire dorm as a private room for you and friends. Small downsides were that my bed was VERY creaky, and also breakfast was not included. Also, a slightly later check out time (it was 10am) would have been appreciated. Great place though.

Great location with many bars and restaurants right on your doorstep. The beds are comfy and everything clean. Only bad thing was the rooms can get a bit stuffy when it's warm and a few people in there. The windows only open slightly so doesn't help much but overall excellent for price

We stayed there a couples of night in a mixed dormitory. Beds were comfortable and clean; bath was in the room. We didn't have breakfast but it was very cheap. Location was excellent, five minutes on foot from all the main attractions and from the train station. The area is plenty of pub as well!

The service was nice, nothing to complain or to praise. The room was really nice appart from the bathroon. Too small and gets dirty easely, but its ok. The location is fine, just a 5 min walk from the city center. beautiful walk, by the way.

My stay with the Safestay York has been a more than pleasant one. From the spotless and we'll kept rooms to the well furnished Bar and dining area. The ever friendly and helpful staff who made the trip to see them well worth it. Will definitely recommend!
