    This hostel is 10/10 except for a couple minor things: * A parking light right outside our window (room 23) would go on/off every 30 seconds. I had to sleep with a tie covering my eyes. * People don't close the door to the patio, so the common area occasionally smells like cigarette smoke.

    Very Good

    The hostel is decent. I was in an 18 mixed room with one bathroom and the door did not close so that was not great. There also was construction being done while I was there without being notified and it started at 9 am so don't expect to get any decent sleep. The facilities are fine with a big kitchen and lots of lounges to relax in. The location is a bit of a walk to the main parts of York however so be prepared for that.
