Really great place - just renovated, the rooms are very clear, the beds are spacious, and the facilities are fantastic - free coffee! And the location is fantastic - barley a five minute walk to the Minster and right in the heart of York. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone!

Fantastic hostel! One of the best in my 4 months of travel so far. VERY good kitchen facilities, great common room area that makes it easy to meet people, great bathrooms, HAIR DRYERS!!!! They had really thought of everything. Mirrors next to plugs for the ladies. I could go on... STAY HERE!!

Wonderful hostel right in the heart of the city centre. I guess it was the most impressive hostel atmosphere I've ever seen. It is more expensive than the other hostels around but the premium I pay is worth what I got.

One of my favourite hostels in the UK. Great amenities, everything is very modern and you couldn't have a more perfect location.

The beds were a little dusty, but other than that, it was all clean and good.

fantastic location, loved the pod beds with reading lights/plugins. Small lockers for valuables only and not in (my) room, but you didn't have to pay to use them. Hot spot for hen/stag parties, loud bar Fri/Sat nights attached, quiet the rest of the time. Only complaint was their WiFi provider. Unless I was doing something wrong (possible) their WiFi provider asked me to login through Fcbk or Twitter, thus giving up my info and and all of my friends'emails, which is not acceptable.

Everything was perfect - but the mattress was the worst I have ever experienced in a hostel. If at all possible, maybe invest in new better ones? I am sure it would be much appreciated.

Could do with a 24-hour reception as I got locked out my dorm when I went to the toilet in the middle of the night and had to sleep on a sofa in the communal area in my pants. AN hour later, the same thing happened to another guy in his pants, who then had to share my sofa.

This hostel is amazing!!! The staff is super helpful, Ivone was really nice and sweet, she gave us a walking tour for free and invite us with some drinks in the terrace. The hostel has all the facilities you may need, laundry for free, a new and very well equiped kitchen. The bedrooms are awesome!!!! Super comfortable beds and very spacious. The hostel is located in a central place so it's really easy to get where ever you want to go. I'll definitily go back if i visit york again!! Thank you!!!!

My six-bed room was really cool - it was a whole suite with a kitchen and living room! Very cool with great facilities as well as very clean. The one bad thing was that the wifi didn't work in the room which was on the second floor, so I had to go down to the bar downstairs which was quite noisy and busy at night. But this hostel is really great, highly recommended!

Great location! Its right in the middle of the city! perfect for walking everywhere, about 10mins from the station. We have a private double - shared bathroom. Room was big and clean.The kitchen was fully stocked with pans and stuff,they also had fresh milk which was super handy!people have said it was loud on the weekends,we stayed on a friday and you could hear the music from the bar downstairs but it wasnt enough to keep us awake, but we were on the 3rd floor! i would stay again, great place

I enjoyed my three night stay in the centre of town. Very clean and the best toilet shower room I have seen in a hotel. Theki4tchen facilities were excellent. I would recommend the Fort.

Great location, very clean. Overall I was very pleased, my only concerns were that the door to the street didn't always close properly and as there were no staff on the premises, anyone could get in. Also the mattresses were a bit uncomfortable, you could feel the springs. Showers were very good, and having hairdryers available fir use was awesome!

This place is absolutely awesome. The two common areas are great, and we got to know a few people while hanging out or cooking in there. It's really clean and upgraded. This hostel is attached to a restaurant, which doubles as a bar/club at night. The only issue we had was trying to check in at 11PM on a Saturday night. The place was packed. But the staff got us checked right in, and having a separate entrance is awesome. Noise wasn't an issue either. I would definitely stay here again.
