Standing in its own spacious grounds, YHA York provides the perfect base for exploring the beautiful historic City of York, with its world class attractions, shops, restaurants and medieval streets, all clustered together within the city walls and below the imposing York Minster.

Premium rooms, great food and comfortable bar makes for a perfect city base. Rooms have 1-6 beds and facilities include restaurant, bar, self-catering kitchen, laundry, Internet access/Wi-Fi, TV lounge, games room, and wheelchair facilities.

York is soaked in history. The Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Normans have all left their mark. Stay in this attractive Victorian hostel and beat the traffic by strolling into the centre along the River Ouse. Visit the Minster, the National Railway Museum or the Jorvik Viking Centre.

Nice Staff. Clean hostel. The food (Hunter Chicken, or sth alike) is good with fair price. The environment is clean. But the bathroom does not have many hangers, not convenient.

Budget meal tip

Ready meals from the supermarkets. Great self catering kitchen, but isolated at the end of a long hallway.
