I organised a full hostel take over for a New Year event. The staff (Manager Alan and his team) are brilliant. They cannot do enough to ensure your stay is great. Food was cooked freshly on site every day and was really tasty. They catered for all sort of special dietary requirements and came up with tasty and interesting dishes.... More

For my 80th birthday all my extended family met for a weekend exclusive hire at YHA Sherwood Forest. It was very straightforward to make the arrangements, and Assistant Manager Yvette was there to meet us on arrival. She explained the various features of the hostel and then took us round the building. Everything was very clean and tidy and the... More

I visited YHA SHERWOOD FOREST with a full set of family members (11 in all). They fitted in with our needs very easily and nothing was to much of a problem. It is situated in the centre of Sherwood forest with only a 5 min walk to the Sherwood forest visitors centre, so the location is perfect. One morning we... More

I went for a 2 night stay during the summer holidays just myself and my 6 year old son. We had lots of fun. He had never stayed in bunk beds before so loved the bunk beds. The room was clean, tidy and very comfortable. It did get a little hot. I felt completely safe leaving the window open all... More

We arrive after a visit to Castle Howard and there was a Robin Hood event going on so the village was busy as were the fields by the YHA. We had a private room, front and back doors, the back door opening onto a little patio by our own back door. Self catering Kitchen was very small so we opted... More

Returned here for a second tour on the Robin Hood festival. Perfect communication from right after booking until end of stay. Perfect full breakfast and good supper food catered for. Great value. Kids will make friends here if you stay a few days, and so will you.

Nice little YHA in lovely location. It has names of Robin Hood characters on doors to rooms but as an overseas traveller was hoping for a little more information, history,.... The room itself was ok except for the shower. It was awful. Barely warm water that only lasted about 30 seconds before you have to 'pump' more. It was freezing... More

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.
