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

Had a lovely one night stay in the Sherwood forest YHA. Had the three course dinner for 12 pounds consisting of pate, bacon burger and plum and almond tart which were all tasty. The rooms all had a character name from Robin Hood which was cool. The rooms were clean and spacious. Hostess was very friendly. Had a full English... More

I stayed here in a group of 10 old school friends & we have stayed at many hostels over the years but we were all extremely impressed by this one. The accommodation was basic as to be expected but the presence of en suites was an excellent extra! But I really must commend the staff for their wonderful friendly &... More

Haven't been in a youth hostel in the UK before and was really impressed with the standard of accommodation. Room was clean comfortable and very pleasant, en-suite was great... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay at this YHA where we supported a group of young people with learning disabilities. Good standard accommodation, clean and comfortable. We had breakfast and our evening meals at the hostel (good choice/good-size portions) and took the packed lunches (cheese/ham/jam sandwiches, crisps, cereal bar, fruit and a bottle of water). Staff friendly,flexible, patient and... More

Stayed Wed/Thursday we had 2x en-suite rooms. The place is not that old and purpose built I would think. Not knowing what to expect (I was a member in 1962) we were pleasantly surprised and used it as a base to visit the Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre only a few minutes walk away & past a small play park. Over... More

We recently stayed here for 2 nights. We stayed in an en-suite room and were very comfortable, The dining area and TV areas were also very comfortable. The whole hostel is well cared for and clean. We self catered so I cannot comment on the food they serve. The only complaint I have is there is no Wi-Fi here -... More

I travelled here last week with a school party. The hostel is in a great location especially for 30+ very excitable children. The staff were brilliant letting us check in early and the rooms were great. The food was great and the kitchen staff were very accommodating to our needs. I thoroughly enjoy visiting this wonderful place every year! Well... More

I had the good fortune to stay last weekend at the Youth Hostel in Edwinstone, right on the edge of Sherwood Forest and just a short stroll from the world famous tree - simply a 'must see' for any Robin Hood enthusiast. This looks like a purpose built Youth Hostel, and in every aspect it's 'just right'; very decent sized... More
