Liked: Very friendly staff and great location - the busing is full of history which is also fun! :-)

Disliked: No screens around beds in the dorm so not much in the way of privacy... Also try to avoid getting beds right next to the (tiny) ensuite in the mixed dorm!

Liked: Big enough for one to do as one likes - apart from the kitchen, which is maybe a little cosy for such a popular place.

Disliked: No shaver points. Kitchen was reserved for about 90 minutes for a single group. Since hostel travellers may be relying on being able to cook for themselves when they want, I feel the hostel's entry on HB should warn of that possibility.

Liked: The word hostel really doesn't do it justice. This place is more like Wayne Manor with bunk-beds. It's a fantastic building right in the city centre and delightfully close to the train station. The icing on the cake was the free breakfast: Fruit, cereal, tea, orange juice and all the croissants you handle! If only I wasn't quite so hung over :)

Disliked: I had to make my own bed on arrival. Is that usual? I have no idea.

Liked: Really friendly and helpful staff, brilliant. Spacious building with a couple of different communal rooms. Really useful location and surprisingly not noisy, considering the massive nightclub right next door (this should be mentioned on the website, by the way as it might bother some people)

Disliked: 1) At breakfast, the tea (and coffee) was so bad I couldn't drink it - it was genuinely the worst tea I have EVER drunk, and others said the same (including a staff member). It was 'liquid tea' from a machine. (And in Yorkshire too! What happened to the famous Yorkshire tea? That could be a feature, instead of a weakness.) For the price I paid, I expected a decent quality of breakfast, but it was worse than the stuff you buy from a poundshop. 2) The heating in the room was way too high and on constantly. People were like lobsters.

07 October 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The ensuite bathroom and the free continental breakfast. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise as you get fruits and croissants and orange juice that actually tasted like orange juice! Also, very convenient location for sightseeing as it was close to both the railway station and the city centre of York where the attractions are located (that being said, York has a very small city centre).

Disliked: Dorm rooms were not very clean, with lots of dust and hair on the floor. The linen provided for the beds had hair on it too, so I'm not sure if it was actually washed? Free wifi could only be accessed near the reception area and it was very sporadic. It was as good as not having any wifi. Kitchen was rather small and basement lounge was rather dingy. If you don't mind bedsheets that aren't too clean, and a very poor wifi signal, then it's quite value-for-money i guess.

Liked: It was conveniently situated near both the York railway station and the city centre! The hostel itself felt like a museum filled with history, so it made it extra special that we could stay inside of it. It felt like a hostel with character. The beds were also very comfortable and clean, and the breakfast spread simple but very satisfying.

Disliked: The dining hall can be quite crowded during breakfast time, but it is not a big problem at all.

Liked: It can simply be a 4 star hotel, the building is very nice, you have a feeling that you are in a museum, secured with cameras, lockers, cages below the beds, and card keys. The shared bathroom is superb, The communal room is very cosy and big. can't be any better and above all I had a great breakfast with lots of variety all provided with a very cheap price.

Disliked: The only thing is internet was available only in the first floor but that can be also good because you will be forced to go to communal room and chat with people instead of staring at laptop or smartphone.
