I went for a 2 night stay during the summer holidays just myself and my 6 year old son. We had lots of fun. He had never stayed in bunk beds before so loved the bunk beds. The room was clean, tidy and very comfortable. It did get a little hot. I felt completely safe leaving the window open all... More

We arrive after a visit to Castle Howard and there was a Robin Hood event going on so the village was busy as were the fields by the YHA. We had a private room, front and back doors, the back door opening onto a little patio by our own back door. Self catering Kitchen was very small so we opted... More

Returned here for a second tour on the Robin Hood festival. Perfect communication from right after booking until end of stay. Perfect full breakfast and good supper food catered for. Great value. Kids will make friends here if you stay a few days, and so will you.

Nice little YHA in lovely location. It has names of Robin Hood characters on doors to rooms but as an overseas traveller was hoping for a little more information, history,.... The room itself was ok except for the shower. It was awful. Barely warm water that only lasted about 30 seconds before you have to 'pump' more. It was freezing... More

This was my first trip to a hostel for many many years. The kids loved the room( an en suite family room) There is a nice little wildlife garden which they both enjoyed. Hostel is on the doorstep of Sherwood forest and its visitor centre, literally walk out of the hostel and you are in the forest. Great for the... More

We got a family room to stay for the night, staff were great, location was great, value was good. Not stayed in a YHA for 30+ years and this one certainly made me think about doing it again. Only relay let down by some maintenance issues.

Booked this last minute for a trip south with my daughter. Manager called to check my late arrival and was very helpful. We were only there for the night, off early in the morning, but would be ideally placed for exploring Sherwood Forest. En suite, duvets, etc. were a long way from my distant memories of sheet sleeping bags 30... More
