wish it wasnt closed from 10 to 4. Inconvenient for travelers such as myself. Wanted to be able to put my refrigerated food in the fridge when I arrived. I had been traveling from York YHA to Sherwood YHA and I had to leave my groceries in the car for hours on a very hot day. I didn't need to gain access to a room, just the self-catering kitchen. Otherwise, it was a VERY nice hostel and I really enjoyed it there. Very friendly staff and well prepared food. It was so clean and comfortable.

The staff were terrific! I was trying to figure out where I wanted to go next and they were really helpful with suggesting places and looking up other YHA places, prices and their numbers so I could get all the relevant info. They also got me booked into the next place easily and were super friendly :)
