My second stay here and it gets better and better! I dragged my brother and sister-in-law here because I knew they and their three kids would love it. We had two family rooms and both were clean, comfortable and warm. We arrived in thick fog and didn't fancy driving out again to eat. Despite the short notice and shortage of staff they let us order eight meals which came on time and were delicious. The four kids aged 5 to 14 had a great time exploring around the hostel and making friends. The next day the sun was shining and the tide out so we were able to walk to Robin Hood's bay looking for fossils on the way. I love this place and can't recommend it highly enough.
