Standing in its own spacious grounds, YHA York provides the perfect base for exploring the beautiful historic City of York, with its world class attractions, shops, restaurants and mediaeval streets, all clustered together within the city walls and below the imposing York Minster.

York is soaked in history. The Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Normans have all left their mark. Stay in this attractive Victorian hostel and beat the traffic by strolling into the centre along the River Ouse. Visit the Minster, the National Railway Museum or the Jorvik Viking Centre. Premium rooms, great food and comfortable bar makes for a perfect city base.

    Nice and warm. Brisk walk into town - by road not river as latter flooded. Good breakfast. York is a beautiful place to visit - much biiger than expected with loads to do, especially this time of year with the Christmas markets on.
