Great hostel, highly recommended. We had a room to ourselves with a superb modern bathroom. Friendly staff and everything very clean. Centrally located. The noise from the downstairs bar was a bit much, but they did provide earplugs (which were put to good use). Would stay there again without hesitation.

Loved the location, the staff (especially Michaela) the food and the vibe. Rooms clean and comfortable. Full range of meals and drinks at great prices in Kennedy's with 20% discount. Dancing and DJ both nights made for a fantastic night out - could barely drag ourselves away to explore other places in York. Wide selection of drinks available in kitchen... More

Stayed overnight on 17th Nov with a friend. I Chose the Fort because it was central and has rave reviews. Not being very familiar with York it was helpful to have a place right in the middle, it was easy to find and to drop our bags off when we arrived. I was surprised how small our twin room was,...

York is lovely anyway and particularly at this time of year. Popped up for the Christmas market with my friend. Just wanted a cheap one night stay somewhere. Haven't stayed in a hostel for many many years so a little apprehensive, The Fort is fantastic though. Clean, comfortable and in a superb location. We were in the Log Cabin Room,... More

This place is in an amazing location in the city center. Also its like a little apartment with just multiple beds. Everything was very clean and staff were super friendly. Also a pub/restaurant is downstairs. I highly recommend it!
