Really great location right in the centre, really clean and nice play to stay, I think maybe the price is slightly high as the rooms are quite small.

Absolutely top-notch hostel that I can recommend to anyone traveling to York. Superb staff, wonderful facilities, thoroughly excellent room and bath, and superior features. Wonderful lounge and kitchen, plus coffee and computer area. Bar downstairs was excellent. Room was immaculate, spacious, comfortable, very affordable and welcoming. "Wet-room" style shower was a little odd, but all modern fixtures. Marvelous location in the heart of the old city. Live music downstairs one night was good.

This was the first stop on my trip and I already know it was the best place I will stay. Really nice atmosphere lots of single travellers so not so many big groups. I would definitely stay there if I went back.

Really enjoyed my stay at this hostel, only complaint was the queue for the bathroom in the morning as the hostel was busy.

The hostel was really nice and clean! I loved the bed, the way you're kind of sleeping in a box with a long night table next to it and if you turned on the little lamp you didn't disturb the others. But still, I thought the staff wasn't really around except for checking in/out.

Great hostel, really clean and lots of nice little touches, such as free biscuits and tee/coffee/squash, and the location cannot be beaten. The only bad thing I can say about this hostel is the lack of WIFI in dorm rooms, which is not so good if you're on a business trip. Also, although the hostel was mostly friendly, the lack of a hostel bar means it's not the best place for meeting people/parties if that is what you are looking for.

Was a great friendly hostel, great location and really friendly and helpful staff the rooms were nice, tho hard to talk to others due to the layout the common room was nice, huge tv, big area, no shortage of power sockets the fridge space a bit tight and the staff a bit to enthusiastic to wake you up in the morning, cleaning room just before checkout and opening blinds etc but apart from that i loved it. the bathrooms were clean but a good going over would be good

The bedroom and location wwere amazing! The bedroom is beautiful and well furnished, and the location could not be better, right in the city center! On the other hand, the bathroom drain kept clogging, which made for very unconfortable showers. If you are staying there during a weekend, noise can be a problem, as the hostel is over a bar. As I was there for Monday and Tuesday, there was only a little noise that was not inconvenient.

As it was the first time I was in a hostel travelling by myself it was the place to be. The location was right in the center, the staff were so nice and helpful and it was just a great place to stay

Although most positive sides were rated for Fort Boutique, the downside are explain as follows: 1. It was very hot in the dorm room during the summer, management might want to think of a way to address this issue for future reference. 2. The music played at night were very LOUD. It lasted until midnight. Earplug was not really helpful - it was just simply TOO LOUD. Overall, I'm proud with the cleanliness and creatives decor of Fort Boutique. Staffs were friendly and helpful too. Thank you.

Nice for free laundry and a new hair drier when asking the staff. It must be better if there is bread in the old building just like the new one.

SIMPLY BRILLIANT! After 14 months travelling and 5 years working in hostels i'd have to say that this was my favourite small hostel yet. The staff/owners Yvonne & Karen have done a great job with the place and are lovely ladies. Very clean, rooms were modern, beds were comfy. EVERYTHING is included- towels, bed light, power point, free coffee, tea, cordial etc. The common area and kitchen were great and felt like home Nice enough to take your family but fun enough to bring your friends.
