Great place to stay in historic house!
This hostel is in a really cool part of town that is close to a lot of different sites. The actual hostel is located in a historic house. It was one of the best hostels I've ever been to! I highly recommend it!

Well located comfortable hotel
Overnight stay before traveling to Hadrian's wall. The location was near the train station which made it very convenient. Easy walk to central York with attractions, shops and restaurants. The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was varied and affordable.

Lovely Mansion as Hostel
I had a great stay here. It's one of the prettiest hostels I've been to. Beautiful 18th century furnishings!

If Heineken did hostels...
I've stayed before an I would again. The curtained beds are great for added privacy and rare in hostels generally. The only thing I think could be improved was that there was no wall mirror in the room, my bed had no plug sockets but one on the other side of the room had an incredible 8! The heavy iron bathroom door squeeked and the handle came of. Staff were however helpful, and check in was easy and fast. A fabulous building in a great location in the heart of York. Very handy for Fibbers live music venue which is just around the corner.

Everything in this hostel is good. Unless roommate because she want to turn off the light whole day like turn off the light on 6.30 pm. while everyone want the light for preparing stuff and luggage and doing something. I thinks hostel should do something with such people like move her to other room.
