I would have preferred to be located closer to old town and not have to walk so far. I walked a LOT around the old town and it was a bit much to have to walk back again after walking around so much. At least it was along the river!

Thank you for your review of YHA York. There is a regular bus service that runs through the day into the early evening, and taxis a fairly priced. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Hannah Cutts Team Leader

Cette auberge est le nec plus ultra de celles que nous avons essayé. Pas plus chère que les autres. York est une ville surprenante. On se croirait revenu un ou plusieurs siècles en arrière tant l'architecture a été bien conservée. Le musée des vikings m'a apporté une vision plus concrète d'une époque et d'une histoire qui n'est pas qu'un conte.

We tried to rent some towels, but there was none available. Apparently a group of guests rented all towels. So the hostel should be better prepared for this sort of situation and have reserve extra towels for other guests. Despite several signs for keeping silence, guests (especially children) made unbearable noise in hallways

Thank you for your review of YHA York. We're sorry that towels were not available during your stay - the group in question had booked last minute, and we were unable to order any more from our delivery company. We have since reviewed the way that we hire towels, so this problem will not happen again. We hope your problems during your stay do not stop you from returning to us in the future.
