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

Visited Nottshire on a student exchange and had a chance to stay at YHA. The facility is basic, yet pleasant with excellent location close to Sherwood forest. The rooms are hostel like, the value is affordable. Would strongly recommend.

Our close family group of eleven ranged in age from four to eighty four. We were impressed with the suitability of the rooms allocated to us, the washing, showering and toilet facilities, and the self-cooking kitchen and common rooms. The hostel food was excellently prepared, well presented with over generous portions. There was a good and secure storage building for... More
