For a hostel with 8 bunk beds to a room this was a great choice. The bunk beds each had individual outlets and a light for convenience and were totally enclosed to give you a sense of privacy. The common room was clean and spacious with a great kitchen with all the necessary tools to make a meal for yourself if you wanted. One of the best parts was the bathrooms! individual stalls with a toilet sink and shower meant complete privacy and they were very tidy. Best of all you are a 5 min walk to York Minster and all the main attractions in the city.
Highly recommend to anyone staying in York looking for a budget friendly place to stay.
The only thing (which didn't bother me at all) was this hostel is directly above a nightclub and you can hear the revelers at night. But because the bunk beds were totally enclosed it helped with the noise and they even provided ear plugs!
