Property Description

Choosing from the array of traditional English pubs surrounding our York hostel, you certainly won’t go thirsty! The atmosphere is just as lively as the city that sparked the magic of Harry Potter with its winding streets, historic architecture, and enchanting tales.
Located within a Georgian townhouse in the heart of York’s city center, Safestay York Micklegate offers the ideal location for exploring all that this city has to offer.

Immerse yourself in the historic charm of medieval buildings that house a plethora of pubs and restaurants, serving a quintessential British roast or a comforting cup of Yorkshire tea – as the saying goes, when in Rome, do as the Romans do!

Just a short 6-minute walk from the bus and train station in Micklegate, and within easy reach of The York Dungeon, the picturesque River Ouse, York Castle Museum, and plenty of pubs and clubs, you’ll find yourself right in the pulse of the city. With the York Shambles said to be the inspiration behind Diagon Alley, Harry Potter fans will feel right at home with us, but no worries if that’s not your thing – there are plenty of other great sights and shops to visit during your stay. Or you could hang out in our shared TV area, terrace, or cozy bar and share a pint with fellow travelers.

With a pocket-friendly vibe that mixes comfort, culture, and tasty treats, we look forward to welcoming you for your next adventure at Safestay York Micklegate.

Great hostel, only a few minutes away from the centre and the main attractions. My only problem was that I could not find any sockets to charge my phone (I stayed in a room on the top floor, my friend didn't have that problem in his room on the first floor), but nothing that a power bank couldn't solve. People working there are friendly and the facilities are big. I 100% recommend this place

Great location and nice hostel. However, is extremely loud as we did visit over a weekend. Shouting and screaming until 4am was not great! Alongside the windows being very thin so you can hear a lot outside on the road.

Would be nice if people could access hot water for beverages and be able to REFRIDGERATE milk for a morning cereal. Cafes too expensive for a decent breakfast especially for students and service workers. Hostels are about encouraging education and travel. Thank you
