    I was so happy with the service I received whilst I stayed here. The staff were so friendly and took the time to give me a tour round the building which I found so helpful. Other hostels I stayed in before didn’t provide a tour round the building. The staff were fantastic, they greet you with a smile and go out of their way to make your stay as lovely as possible. The quality of the rooms are good and comfortable. The hostel has a high level of cleanliness. I was very impressed customer 😀

    I only stayed at Astor York for one night and I am extremely disappointed I didn’t stay longer. The staff were so friendly and a really fun bunch to be around. I felt that the communal areas were really open which helped create a friendly and inviting atmosphere. I found it so easy to make friends at this hostel! It was also really clean, had a great breakfast, and pretty good wifi. I will definitely be coming back to York, mostly for this hostel.

    A friendly, well-managed hostel in a pleasant area, reasonably close to the town centre and very near the train station. It's evident that the staff put energy into running it, from the cleanliness to the communal activities (e.g. group dinners, movie nights). The walk to town is super (if walking is your jam), whether you go under Micklegate Bar or climb the old city walls. Lockable metal storage cages beneath beds, which can be noisy to open and shut. High-performing showers.

    Fantastic hostel! Friendly staff, nice common areas and TV room, and the most amazing hostel kitchen I've ever seen (it even has ovens!). About a 15/20 min walk to the main city but it's not an issue. I will definitely stay here again if I come back to York.

    Loved this place! Would definitely stay again! The only negative thing is it's not centrally located. However, I found the walk into town to be quite nice and everything else about the hostel more than makes up for the distance. The staff is helpful and friendly. There is a warm, fun, inviting atmosphere that really made this a fantastic stay.
