Great place to stay, very clean and brilliant facilities, however, the atmosphere wasn't great. The bar wasn't really open and there wasn't any organised group events or anything... But overall a good place to stay!

Staff were absolutely lovely, hostel was relatively clean (but the bathrooms got pretty messy as its a bad person to bathroom ratio, and the shower floods the toilet cubicle). Storage lockers under beds are refreshingly large and stored my big suitcase. Beds had curtains with lamps to read with which is a big plus. USB charger ports would be a nice addition, but as it was there were ample power ports. Was in a good location, and would stay again.

Location is very good. The hostel is worth its money. The beds are very comfortable and the curtains around them make for a rather private stay, which you normally don't get in a hostel. The locker for each bed is big enough for all your stuff, but bring a padlock. The ensuite bathroom is a nice thought, but too small, not very clean and not enough for a room with 12 beds. There is no kitchen, but you can use the microwave in the breakfast area. Breakfast is worth its money. Would recommend.

The hostel was pretty spacious, even with the mixed room I stayed at. One downside is the toilet, one toilet doesn't suffice the number of backpackers inside, 2 or 3 will do. The bar was closed at half past 1, too early. However, the hostel's very clean, good location and friendly staffs.

I loved how the hostel was in a old Victorian styled house and the interior decorations were adorable. It was a cozy atmosphere and a great place for a nights sleep. Plus the dorm beds have curtains for privacy which is a definite bonus.

The shower/toilet in the dorm room wasn't my favourite. And I could only find one extra bathroom. Other than that it was an ok place for an affordable bed.

Safestay York is a comfortable, small hostel near the center of York. The staff are great, and the best part of the hostel are its beds; curtained on all sides, you can have plenty of privacy. The bathroom isn't as nice and clean as the room itself. However, I gave it a lower rating by location because it is right next to a night club; the noise from the club lasted late into the night. This was not mentioned by any reviews or staff beforehand; hopefully this helps.

Very basic for the money, but it was high season so all accommodation prices are inflated. Great position close to town centre. Bed was comfortable but they don't provide a top sheet, just a winter weight doona - bit weird considering its summer. Would recommend
