After our very first visit, this has become one of our favourite hostels. We now make this an annual pilgrimage in our capacity of volunteer wardens and we are always guaranteed a warm welcome from Simon, Maureen and Barney the yodelling dog! This has always been a comfortable and relaxing stay in a beautiful sleepy border village, but now it... More

Our last night of the 2 week Scottish cycle tour found the 4 of us returning to Kirk Yetholm before catching the train south from Berwick. As last time it was a great stay with two enthusiastic volunteer wardens (Simon and Maureen) on hand to greet us with a hot drink on arrival. The new wood burning stove was blasting... More

This place had way too many rules and for what you got was too expensive. Old lumpy mattress, thin, threadbare sheets and blankets and very strange people staying there. The kitchen was well equipped but came with even more sets of rules. The whole place is dark and smells of moth balls. Give this place a miss and stay at... More

I have stayed several times over the years but this is the first time with the new owner. It was friendly, clean and comfortable and all the fellow guests were amenable and interesting. I would always prefer to stay at this type of place rather than a hotel as people want to socialise and lend garlic, onions and parmesan!

Would recommend a visit to Kirk Yetholm Hostel. We stayed for two nights as a family group of seven adults and children and all really enjoyed it - especially the board games in the evening! Hostel was very welcoming, clean and well equipped, booking was easy too. We took three private rooms and were very happy with the shared wc... More

We stayed here for a night as a family of 4 on our way South back to England. Our room had 2 bunks, a lovely view and excellent bathroom facilities just across the corridor. The location is excellent in a peaceful, little explored part of Scotland. Kitchen is clean and well equipped. A bit chilly but with electric fires provided.... More

Doing the St Cuthbert's again this year but this time walking west. Good to see that hostel is doing well and being well used by walkers and cyclists. We love the cosy atmosphere and the drinks on arrival along with a friendly smile. As before comfy beds and good facilities, what more does one need Thanks for another great stay... More

Lovely spot and great accommodation at the end of the Pennine Way. Now run as an independent hostel it is making a good job of being friendly and welcoming. Glad it was saved as an affiliate of the SYHA scene We will be back

I stayed at this picturesque, self catering hostel on the St Cuthbert's Way during the wintery April of 2013, and it was great to have the option of some low cost accommodation on the route. However there was still a fair bit of snow on the hills, which may be why I was a bit chilly at the hostel. As... More

We stayed in the family bunk room with 4 beds. Great traditional little basic youth hostel with a lovely friendly feller running it, totally relaxed feel and fantastic walks up big hills or across river meadow to great huge meals in the pub in Town Yetholm.
