Returned last night from a 5 night stay. Staff were always very helpful and polite, and the communal area was comfortable and (thankfully) air conditioned. The room I was allocated was what I've come to expect from modern YHA hostels, having a light and power socket for each bed. The room was very warm at night but it was a...

Just returned from a 2-night stay at this hostel with my class of Year 4 children. Must say that the staff were exceptionally helpful and accommodating of our needs - meal times, plenty of cuppas for thirsty staff, even giving us a toothbrush for one child who didn't have his. Would heartily recommend it for a teaching break. I would...

Absolute brilliant place. The YHA came up as the place to stay for York, £199 for a 6 man room. All bedding is provided. The place is clean and staff are very friendly. Only a 10 minute walk from the hostel to York city centre. Would definable you recommend this place

Pretty good value for money. They have a bar and serve food. The place is really modern and very clean, with a nice self catering kitchen including all the necessities. Downsides were no mirrors in the bathrooms for room H1 meant I needed to put the lights on to do contact lenses using the mirror in the bedroom, not great...

We went here as a group of 12, staff were extremely friendly and helpful with local information, taxis and general help. Food was great with a varied menu, breakfast a tad expensive for what it was (£6) and I would go out into town to have it next time. Lunch was a good price and would rival any good pub...

Awful awful awful. The room was boiling hot so nobody could sleep and the window only opens a slither because of some stupid lock on it. I then tried to go and open a window in the corridor and leave the door open..... only to get trapped in the stairwell for 2 hours in the middle of the night. God...

Thank you Josh M for your review of YHA York, sorry to hear your stay with us was not a comfortable one, the locks on our windows and doors are installed as a safety feature as a large proportion of our guests are very young but we can of course unlock at a guests request, whilst our rooms are not...

The dorm rooms get pretty hot as there's no AC and only a mini fan, and the hostel is a good 20-25 minute walk from the city center, but you can't beat the price for the value! The kitchen is well-stocked, the entire place is very clean, the reception staff members helpful, and the wifi works everywhere, including the rooms.

We had a great stay in this amazing city hostel. We had a family room in the courtyard. Liked everything about this hostel, great facilities, great location and friendly and helpful staff. We ate out most days but did have a great breakfast! I liked the open plan seating and laid back atmosphere.
