Have stayed in this hostel on a few occasions that is now owned by Friends of Nature but affiliated to the SYHA. Very clean and a great location for cyclists, walkers and people touring. Self catering in large kitchen area. Dormitories or smaller rooms available.

This is a charming little hostel which is an affiliate of the SYH association, but owned by the The Friends of Nature. It was formerly owned by the SYH but has been sold and improved and updated since then. It sits in a serene little hollow, below the village green, at the end of the Pennine Trail (or beginning I...

After the 26 mile tramp from along PW from Byrness, arriving at Kirk Yetholm was a shear delight. The tea and coffee on arrival was most appreciated - Thank You!! Comfy hostel and friendly staff - good beds, lounge overlooking fields, showers and washrooms all improved since last visit some 25yrs ago. Good to see eco improvements with solar panels... More

Booked into this hostel as intended on staying overnight there during a two day canoe trip. On the day of the trip things went a bit wrong and we ended up getting held up. As a result one of the members of our party attempted to phone the hostel to make them aware we were going to be behind schedule... More

Whilst on a walking holiday 'St. Cuthbert's Way we stayed at Kirk Yetholm Hostel. The scenery is majestic. The Facilities are excellent - comfortable and spotlessly clean. We would definitely recommend Kirk Yetholm Hostel. A great place to relax and unwind, after walking in wet conditions, the views are spectacular.

Thanks to Simon for opening up early in the season for our St Cuthbert's Way walk. Our first friends of nature house in UK and did not disappoint. We arrived early and the tea making facilities were a gift from heaven as we relaxed in the lounge watching the new born lambs dancing in the field opposite. Facilities are good... More

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
