We stayed at York YHA as a family a few years back, and liked it then, so decided to stay again on our trip to York this past weekend, the refub is fantatsic, lovely clean, and contemporary looking. However, I think that withthe refurbs they have lost alot of the family element. As the TV room is now tiny, and the facilities they had for children are non existent anymore. Also the pool room only has one snooker table now which is a shame.
The ensuite family rooms have also lost out on space and no longer have a TV, which is a shame as the main TV room is too small to accommodate for the amount of people that stay at the hostel.
I was also dissapointed that although it states that they do not take booking from all male or female groups etc, on our first night either side of me was just this, all drunk making tonnes of noise, which was very dissapointing.
However the location, friendlyness of staff, cleanliness and other facilities does make up for this.
All in all we had a great stay, and have booke to go back again for the Christmas Market in December
