Location, staff friendly
Not 100 percent clean
The facility in general and location is great. Self-catering kitchen was more than adequate and while we didn't utilize it, it appeared that the menu of food to be ordered was also good. Breakfast was good, though staff seemed a little annoyed that we came down for breakfast with only 15 minutes left (could understand the annoyance if we came down at closing time, but 15 minutes seemed more than sufficient?) Facilities outside are particularly nice with plenty of room for children to play in the grass out back. Parking was also quite sufficient.
In general we have been really impressed with the YHA facilities but this one let us down a little. It is a beautiful facility, but service and cleanliness left a little to be desired. Some of the staff was helpful, others acted as though we were bothering them. Our room smelled significantly of sewage upon arrival and we were told that there was nothing that could be done that night and would have to wait until the morning (when we were leaving anyway). This isn't a satisfactory solution for that particular problem.
Staff was super friendly and helpful, enjoed our stay very much.
An auntie and nephew adventure brought us to York Youth Hostel. We didn’t want a flashy hotel and it was the bunk beds, private room with shower and toilet, self-catering facilities, breakfast on site and location that helped us decide. The youth hostel is about a 30 minute walk for a 5 year old along the River Ouse. A beautiful walk with lots to see. We did that walk quite a few times over three day with no complaining. The Hostel is set in quiet surrounding and set back off the road. Staff were welcoming and very friendly and happy to help. Rooms were perfect for what we needed. Very hot but not much can be done about the outside temperature. They were very clean and bins emptied everyday. Bunk beds were comfortable and we both slept well. Other areas of the hostel were clean and well used. The self catering kitchen has sufficient equipment. Clearly it is up to the guests how tidy it is, and the majority of people who use youth hotels respect each other. Overall, the accommodation was perfect for us and we would highly recommend.
Only downside was we had to wait 20 minutes after the check in time as the rooms weren’t ready. However, staff were apologetic and we got checked in quickly.
The payment was at the property. Rooms were clean and had the charging points beside each bed. The wash rooms and kitchen were clean. Kitchen was well equipped. Staff was polite and it was just 5 minutes walk from neatest bus stand.
It does not have any lifts. So if you have got the huge luggage, you need to take those through so many staircases. There is a back door, but that's open from inside only and not outside. So they should think for sorting this out for smooth check in and check out.
With a stay at YHA York - Hostel in York, you'll be within a 5-minute drive of York Minster and York National Railway Museum. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
