12 bed room and only one bathroom"container" might not be the nicest and most comfortable option... maybe make another bathroom available all day long. curtains at bed were nice to have some privacy. check in 24h is also quite good option. unfortunately.there is no common room available during day. maybe open the breakfast room so people can at least make...

No need to take a cab unless you have a big luggage since, the way from York to this hostel is quite complicated or you... More

A great stay, location in york ideal for all activities in city, good service and welcoming staff, had a good warm feel. Worth the money good value, reasonable prices on group bookings. Only problem would be rooms on street side of building could be noisey with its location on micklegate. Overall a good stay.

Staff could be less business like and more friendly and social with the guests. Breakfast is ordinary for £4 and already cleared away by 9.20am. Should continue til 10.00. Smoking area is unsocial. Too much lighting.

The staff were very friendly & welcoming especially as we were a stag party. Let us drop our bags off early so we didn't have to carry them until check in. We booked 2 dorms & they were clean & comfortable.

This amazingly huge and beautiful building is bright, cherry, modern enough to feel clean. The staff were helpful and prompt and the rooms were clean plus the bunks have curtains for privacy and light reduction which I love. The location is superb, a 10 min walk from the train station and central to stores and restaurants.

Clean. Helpful staff. Great location for exploring York - no more than 10 minutes to tourist attractions. Restaurants nearby. Breakfast was self-service but plentiful. Nice bar/lounge area. Games room. Smoking area. Downside: no lift.
