It was many years since I'd been hostelling and I was just looking for simple inexpensive accommodation for a night or two. How things have changed. What a revelation. The accommodation was simple, but very, very comfortable and I slept extremely well in this peaceful location. The service was outstanding. You can now buy a very good meal cooked on... More

Such a shame this is being modernised, we loved it. Home cooked food, lovely staff, comfy room. Wonderful.the dining room was bright cheerful, dinner and breakfast far better than in many pubs and all we needed.

Within walking distance of the most mountainous part of Hadrian's wall, this is a traditional hostel, quite roomy in the lounge and dining room, very cramped in the self-catering kitchen. There is a kitchenette upstairs with kettle and microwave. We opted to buy dinner. It was pretty good, and the staff were coping well with a lot of visitors for... More

I stayed overnight on a short walking break along the middle stretch of Hadrian's Wall. The hostel surpassed my expectations (based on the luke warm reviews here) in all respects. The staff were friendly and very helpful, the food was very good (much better than the sample menu on the YHA website suggests) and the general cleanliness, atmosphere and facilities... More

I would describe this as a walkers hostel. Excellent location for walking and it's clean. When were having breakfast I said to my parter, well this is 'cheap and cheerful', to which he replied,'we'll it's cheap'. The customer service of the bloke on reception could also do with some training. Getting there after a long drive and asking him if... More

My partner and I have different opinions about Once Brewed. I have stayed in youth hostels in ten countries over the last 35 years. Stayed in some great ones. Once Brewed YHA is not one of the great ones. To put it into context: Once Brewed YHA is one of England's first hostels and is about to be completely re... More

Not the best place I've ever stayed, but you get what you pay for. The rooms are small and a little damp, it needs some serious updating, but everything is kept perfectly clean. For a little extra you can have a private room too, if you don't feel like sharing. You'll get a cold shower in the morning, but this... More
