    Awesome, friendly staff who were always willing to help. Obviously different ambience during Covid, but felt very secure that protocol was followed while still retaining a relaxed vibe. Beautiful patio area outside, and what looked ike a large fully functioning kitchen, though of course in these times it was closed.

    Great hostel. Great staff, great facilities and near to all the major sights. Good value for money and would recommend in the future. A bit quiet but likely due to time of year and COVID

    Staff were super helpful and nice. The kitchen wasn't opened due to covid but they still had the lounge and outdoor areas open to chill. We were in the big dorm that which had four of us in there so the hostel are keeping to the social distancing rules 👍🏼👍🏼 we'll definitely stay here when we come back to York! Thanks guys!

    Good looking hostel about a mile from York centre, a bit pricier than you may be used to owing to it being in York but no complaints- the place was clean, the dorm spacious, reception very friendly, the communal areas including garden very appealing (even though we barely saw a soul owing to the current pandemic). Backpackers will find it a cut above average- other stayers like us will find it a little no frills but with more character than a Travelodge! Overall a pleasant stay. Would recommend.
