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.

Very nice hotel with friendly and helpful staffs. Totally clean and safe. Although it may be a little inconvenient for backpackers since they have no self catering facilities and no fridge or microwaves (the info on should be revised, they say they have microwaves). Also there are no tea making facilities (kettles). The reception staffs helped me out with hot water from the reception cafe. Also be noted that the luggage storage is £3.

PROS: location; old but spacious and overall well structured building (room 4 had 2 large windows); bed was clean, outlets working well; wi-fi working; friendly staff; shared use bathorooms were an ok level of clean and very spacious. CONS: ensuite bathroom is bad - too small and tight, no separation or curtains for the shower so everything gets wet (I used shared bth only); bed moved a lot when person in upper bunk moved; didn't see the room carpet or ensuite being cleaned during stay
