YHA York is a hostel boasting Grade II listed status, close to the centre of historic York. The property was bequeathed to the Youth Hostel Association by the Rowntree Family.
A large contemporary extension has been added to the rear of the site to form a new main entrance, lounge, reception and cafe bar. This area has added a completely new dimension to the use of the hostel and provides a valuable social area for guests to enjoy, with views over the generous garden. All bedrooms refurbished, more en suites included and shared facilities vastly improved.
