Fabulous stay.
Really good location for our stay in York as part of our cycling weekend. Handy to have the bike to get from YHA into York as otherwise would have been a 30 minute walk. Secure bike space. Helpful staff and good decor. Very clean dorm room.

6/10 Good

Over all it was ok as it was for just some where to sleep. Was disappointed that there was no water on the morning, couldn’t brush our teeth or have a shower. Had to use a bottle of water to brush our teeth. When ask when checking out we got told that the water tank had ran out and has to wait to fill back up. Bit crap when you need to have a shower etc.
