This hostel is in an excellent location, right in the centre of the downtown tourist area of York. The room was clean and the staff left us a bunch of local snacks to try. The hostel is about a 15min walk from the train station - for those coming by train. The hostel is connected to Kennedy Bar - next door - and is a self-check-in. If you get stuck then the bar staff can help. Small kitchenette - hot drinks and basic utensils, plates etc. provided
