Directions to Ace Hostel in York please!

An e-mail to Ace Hostel, 88-90 Micklegate in York requesting walking directions from the railway station has gone unanswered. This is concerning since I have a reservation there in mid September.

I'd really appreciate knowing if this hostel is out of business. If it is still in business, i'd really appreciate walking directions from the railway station. I understand the distance is short.

Thanks in advance.

No it's not closed. I was in York last month, and did a walking tour of locations not normally open to the public, and a look around that building was included. It was very much open for business then.

Directions from the Station are on the page I have linked to.

Gooooooogling for 'Ace Hostel York' brought up the 'safestay' site and it clearly is the same place frpm photos.

Took about 2 seconds (well, maybe more, but whatever....)

Here are said directions again, copied and pasted from that website:

<<From the station turn right down Queens Street, for a few minutes, then turn left onto Micklegate. We are a few hundred yards down on the left.

Micklegate House is just 5 minutes walk from York Railway station and 5 minutes walk from the bus terminus.>>

It's changed its name - it's not called Ace anymore. Try http://safestayyork.co.uk/

Have you tried phoning them?

Thanks, everyone for your assistance. Once I learned of the hostel's name change, I e-mailed and have been informed the booking is secure. I also have specific walking instructions.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
