I stayed at the Ace York Hostel with a group of friends and my first impression was a good one. The Hostel was very clean and the staff were very helpful. However after a full day in York and an Indian Meal from the restaurant across the road we were ready for a good nights sleep and subsequently we were all tucked up in bed by around 11:30 pm.
There were 12 of us in total staying at the Hostel, half of us stayed in a room across the landing and the other half stayed in room number 6. What a Mistake! I climbed into my bunk bed thoroughly exhausted and I couldn't believe what happened next!
The noise from the Dance Club below was deafening to say the least. The windows, bed and even myself were vibrating violently with the noise of the music below, the only thing missing from our room was a dance floor because the noise was that loud and the beat that aggressive, you felt has though you were in the Dance Club itself. The vibrations were horrendous!
After about 3 hours of no sleep what's so ever we couldn't stand it any longer and one of my friends complained and we were then offered to be moved to an empty room across the hall. We had just settled down to try and get some well needed sleep when at 7.30 am all the fire alarms went off and we then had to vacate this room.
What I couldn't understand is why the staff at the Ace York Hostel didn't put us in this quite room over looking the street in the first place because the Hostel Staff were apparently well aware of this problem from the Dance Club and they had regular complaints about the noise. We were also informed that the Dance Club have just put in a new sound speaker system which enhances the noise even more.
I would advise the owners of the Ace York Hostel to not use the rooms that over look the Dance Club when they have a Rave/Dance taking place because I have never experienced noise and Vibrations like that before in my life whilst trying to sleep!
