Not for me
1st time in a hostel. I should have read up b4 we stayed. We hated it. It was £80 for 1 night No tv, No Toiletries, No Towels, No windows, Just 2 Bunk beds in a room. and a shower above the toilet
Robert, gb1 night trip
Safestay York
It was good this time,because I had no thumping from underneath my bunk in my room to awake me during the night. The level of customer service this time was an improvement on some previous stays I had here. I noticed the water was hot this time for a shower because it hasn't always been although this isn't the staff's fault when the water isn't hot because Safestay York is in an old building,originally from the Georgian period,namely Micklegate House. When guests come to stay if they aren't too busy with other things I recommend they take a little time to look at the plaques near the guest rooms and stairways and on the ground floor near the main entrance which give descriptions of what purpose the rooms originally had in Georgian times because historically Micklegate House is an interesting place.
