    YHA York was an ideal meeting point for me (from Scotland) and a friend travelling from Argentina. It is quiet (even though there was large a group of school kids staying), provides good social space inside and out and the lovely city of York is very accessible. Thanks...

    The hostel was easily accessible by foot and bus, in a serene setting and with a historical connection to the progressive, community based spirit of York , congruous with the ideals of hostelworld.

    Was very impressed by this hostel and was actually interested to read about how the YHA got started (they have info plaques on the walls). It’s a bit of a walk from the train station with a heavy bag in tow but its located right next to the river and provided for some great views around the area. The rooms and facilities were clean and the social environment was comfortable.

    Everything was excellent except for the bedroom which was unbearably hot. Despite opening the windows and curtains the temperature remained high. It was not a particularly hot day either.

    Overall pretty nice place. A little farther from city centre than I had thought, but not too bad of a walk. Mixed staff friendliness, some were great and some were...not as great. Definitely geared more towards family and older crowds.
