Multi-million pound makeover in 2013
If you love history, you’ll love a stay at YHA York. Our super-equipped hostel has all the facilities you need and makes a perfect base for school trips and groups. You can stay connected with free Wi-Fi, or socialise in our modern and stylish social areas. Why not book one of our state-of-the-art meeting rooms; complete with projector, AV equipment and whiteboard to study?
For fun educational activities (think Viking pancakes), YHA York is a great place to stay. Relax with a beer in our ambient café bar, enjoy a game of pool, or recharge for a day of discovery with tasty group catering options. Not to mention our Ben & Jerry’s ice cream machine…
We may be fully in the present, but York’s real charm lies in its amazing historical attractions. Travel in time at the Jorvik Viking Centre, see grisly scenes at the York Dungeon, or be inspired by the beautiful York Minster. YHA York is just a mile away from the city centre and all its treasures, so you can shop in the Shambles and be home in no time. We’ve even got 24 hour access for night owls.
