I'll come again for sure ! very nice people and the best place to sleep I've ever experienced : privacy in the bed plus a private bathroom. Just a little remark for the kitchen which isn't really a place where you can cook.

I had a good time at the safestay York hostel. The staff members were really nice and the place was really good. It is a cheap and good accomodation to Stay when you will visit York. In addition, it is close to the station.

One issue I arrive just after 5. Most of the lower bunks in my room were not occupied at that time. I was given a top bunk. As I am 63 with major heart surgery last year-a fact I informed the reception staff about, I was disappointed that the staff member became part of his computer- looked at his screen...

Reasonably priced with great location - just 5 min walk from York station and a short walk from the city center. Very friendly staff as well. Stayed in a 12-bed dormitory but the curtains around beds gave good privacy. The room was a bit dusty though. The en suite bathroom was very small and wasn't so clean.

You get exactly what you pay for, the 4 person shared bedrooms even have drapes on the lower bunks for extra privacy. As per any other hostel you can't choose who you share with so pack some ear plugs or make sure you have a solid nightcap.

This is an upmarket style budget hostel. Reasonable quality for a good price. I do recommend this hostel to travellers on a budget, as it is worth a visit. I had a beautiful view looking North into the city. York boasts an amazing architecture no matter where you are.

Not a bad room just sneezing and wheezing alot due to the amount of dust in the room especially under the bed other than that and a fair bit of noise in the morning not too bad. Priced at £90 for the night not too bad compared to other places in york.

Nice location! Nice services! I enjoyed staying in your hostel, Safestay in York. When I stayed, there were many young students, looked like 10yrs. So, it was a little bit crowded and noisy. But the toom condition was good.

My very overnight stay served its purpose. Pillow was very lumpy and unusable. Duvet was warm enough. Area around each bed was very cluttered with other peoples' belongings. one guests alarm went offearly and was left unattended
