    Literally right in the heart of the city. We could walk everywhere from the front door and restaurants and food spots were right next door. Staff were really helpful and the room was amazing. Great facilities. Cleanest hostel I've stayed in for a long time. The paintings/artwork in the rooms and halls were so cool. Really great place for York weekend away

    Amazing hostel! Beds were insanely comfortable. Free laundry (including detergent), linens, towel, ear plugs, tea, etc. Very clean and in a perfect location. It was definitely loud from people outside but I was so tired I slept right through it.

    Me and my mum had the ocean twin room. It was perfect for what we required. Shower was lovely! Very clean! The location was unbeatable! The hostel was run by the restaurant bar below so it felt like a very hands off service. The people we did speak with where more than happy to help! I would definitely stay here again!

    Great place. Would definitely recommend. Didn’t interact with any workers the whole time though but the check in was super easy on our own.

    Great location. Clean beds. Pillows are a little flat. A little noisy at night due to its location, but they offer ear plugs which is a fine trade-off. Three dorms are on a higher floor than the other ones so noise likely isn't as bad as in the ones below. Something to note: The internet was restricting some apps like WhatsApp, Reddit, Tinder. Connecting to a neighboring wifi was spotty, but at least let me communicate with my friends through WhatsApp which was my only means of communication.

    Loved the little cubicle beds, which added to the privacy. All staff were super helpful, with the very 'hands off' approach to booking. Dead centre in York with friendly bar staff below in the connected bar 'Kennedys'. Got a free towel which was a bonus but I could imagine 1 shower allocated to an 8 bed room might get crowded when full (I stayed midweek so not too busy).

    The Hostel is well located and easy to reach from the station. You are sent access instructions for the hostel and room. The room was clean, comfortable and had all that we needed. There was no coat hangers but these were provided on request. The bathroom could do with towel hooks and the fan tends to stay on far longer than you would expect which is a pain in the dead of night. York is full of good eateries and there is plenty of choice close by. The staff are friendly and very helpful.
