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. We had a fab time. Shame Smailholm tower had closed for the winter tho... More

Situated in a sleepy little village nestling in the Border hills this hostel is well worth going out of your way for. When the SYHA decided to off-load the hostel it was bought by Friends of Nature, much to the relief of the many hostellers who have used this accommodation over a 70 year period. If you are looking for... More

This is our third stay in this home from home of a hostel and certainly won't be the last! The location, down a quiet lane in the village of Kirk Yetholm, is one of our favourites for a peaceful night's sleep. The facilities were excellent; a large really well equipped kitchen, a cosy lounge with beautiful views and our snug... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of my Pennine Way walk on 24/25th May 2013. Simon was very welcoming and friendly at all times and gave us a quick oveview of the local area and eating establishments. The room was small but ideally suited to our needs for the weekend. All in all the hostel provided a... More

Although this hostel has no washing machine, and being small, feels rather cramped, I would recommend it as it has an endearing atmosphere which feels unique somehow. The tight spaces help to create a warm and engaging environment, particularly in the small common room. Being at the end of the famous Pennine Way it seems unthinkable that this place was... More
