  • The 10 Best Hostels in York, UK

Budget travellers know that there is no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a bit more.

“Best Youth Hostel we've stayed in so far! Easy access and easy to find from motorway without having to drive through the centre of York. Very clean, comfortable beds and bathroom facilities, great hot shower, staff extremely friendly and helpful. Room more spacious than expected. No noise overnight when we stayed, slept well. Lovely flat walk along the river into the centre of York on a concrete path i.e. not muddy. Great value for families compared to a hotel room.”

“Clean, bright & airy. Friendly, helpful staff. A long time since I've stayed in a youth hostel & this time we came as a family if 5. We were all so surprised at how nice it was and the kids loved our big room. Breakfast was also excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend for any one coming to visit York, particularly families who often it hard to find rooms big enough for 5 or more without it breaking the bank.”

The Fort Boutique Hostel

“Cheap, clean and friendly.its above a late bar so it is noisy but backpackers hostels arent for light sleepers anyway. Free tea and coffee, buy your own food and use the kitchen and common room, saves a fortune and all this with a smack bang central this place and im a regular visitor.”
