If you´re hiking the wall, this location and price can´t be beat. It was quite loud at times (there was a young school group of 20 plus children using the stairwell as a game place). We were the only other two in the hostel, with the only room directly attached to the stairwell. We complained about the noise, as we... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very helpful and enthusiastic staff. The food was excellent. Best I've eaten in a hostel. It's just a short walk to Hadrian's wall and it's right next door to the information centre. Very interesting Roman forts nearby.

Whilst walking Hadrian's Wall Path my friends and I stayed at YHA Once Brewed we were made very welcome. It is a very peaceful location and the accommodation was very comfortable. We were so relieved to arrive at the YHA Once Brewed as we had encountered some bad weather and arrived very wet. However we were made welcome and soon... More

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
