    Astor Hostel was a great place for our weekend trip to York! The room was exactly as pictured and the staff was wonderful! I really appreciate that they take the time to introduce themselves and show you around the hostel! The breakfast is another great perk, and all proceeds go to different charities! I would definitely stay here again and would recommend Astor to anyone on a budget looking for a great place to stay!

    The hostel's vibe is fantastic, the staff are so friendly and chill and little details such as the charity breakfast, cheap bar and cinema room really show this place has been thought through to ensure its guests have a great time. On this occasion I was working in York so didnt get much chance to enjoy the hostel but in the evenings after work it was a welcome place to hang out and chat, I would definitley stay here again and will be on the lookout for other Astor hostels in the future, thanks!

    I really enjoyed my stay, the receptionist were really helpful and patient when I could clearly tell he was stressed over check in. They gave me a mini tour around the hostel before bringing me to my room and told me roommates of the night to look after me lol. I liked the fact that there was a beautiful bathroom within the room, so I don't have to get out of the room to go to the toilet or shower. The light in the bathroom was a little weak but not inconvenience. Room was a little warm thou.
