Home / Our Centre / Facilities


As the only hostel in York rated 4 star by Visit England, our modern facilities include:


  •  Free and ample car parking with plenty of space for coaches and cars to manoeuvre and park in the grounds. Coaches are more than welcome to return and park during the day having dropped passengers off elsewhere.
  • The modern two-storey building is fully centrally heated and contains 21 twin bedded rooms, each with a washbasin and toilet en suite. The rooms can be easily converted into four bedded rooms by unfolding the two bunk beds from the wall. Separate individual shower facilities are available for every five rooms.
