Getting negatives out of the way first; the wifi is only usable in the common areas, and there's a lot of noise from a nearby club. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Ace York. The beds are comfortable, and linen, etc. is provided. The staff were always incredibly approachable and friendly, and the free breakfast goes a little beyond the hostel-standard toast and juice with croissants and a small variety of fruit.
Location wise, the area feels very safe, and is surrounded by restaurants and pubs, with two supermarkets being no more than 5 minutes away by foot, and it's an easy 10 minute walk to most of the sights worth seeing.
Would definitely recommend.
