Our road trip from Australia came to a standstill when we tried to get acccommodation for 3 adults in York, including our elderly mother. We had our YHA cards to receive discounts and to stay in a hostel, if suitable. Well, what a great place YHA York is! We had a private ensuite room, warm, comfortable and very clean. Mum was not too sure if it would be her cup of tea, but there were all ages in the cafe area from young to old. We were surprised that there were more of the 'mature age' hostelliers and maybe that is because the hotels can't accommodate 3 adults without paying for 2 rooms. Parking is very limited in York so it was good to have plenty of parking at the YHA. The cafe was a bonus, where we did not have to go out for a meal at night. Meals were good and you can get wine and beer if required.
The next morning we walked into the town, which is no more than a 30 minute lovely walk via the river.
Well done to all the staff as you were all very welcoming and accommodating! Mum said that you were young, professional and respectful, that you have now convinced her to stay in more YHA's.
To those that complain,you need to take a good look at your expectations and value for money. YHA YORK is the place to stay when you are on a budget travelling and want a nice clean warm room!
