York, is one of the most haunted cities in Europe. But your not going to be frightened by the accommodation and hospitality of this, 'hostel'. In fact, the very term hostel, is barely fitting for this large imposing, Georgian building. Before you enter, throw out any preconceived ideas of a hostel being in a dilapidated ,ageing building,with dirty mattresses and various equally dilapidated people. Some 18 months and £2 million has been spent bringing the Ace into the 21 century.. The rooms are bright,airy and the bunkbeds remind you more of Porridge than Pentonville. The bunk bed experience ,will take you back to your schooldays. Six people,sharing a room like children once more ,. It was half the fun of visiting York. But if it's the modern world you seek. The Ace is wired with free, WiFi throughout with a free Internet room, complete with Big screen t/v and Chesterfields. A 24 hour bar, very helpful desk staff, who know every nook and cranny of York and literally round the corner from the train station. The Ace Hostel is your one stop location to explore everything York has to offer..but be warned, although the Ace is easy on the wallet. and immense fun..York on the other hand is fun, but not too easy on the wallet !!
