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.

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.
