Pretty good stay overall. Good location,and facilities. Nice staff, clean place. Quite as I was in a room at the end of the corridor. The very light continental breakfast is one of the weakest points: only toasts with no jam, and no butter on Sunday

Absolute must if you're a bunch of lads (or lasses!) looking to get on the steam, with a place to crash at the end of the night.. Cheap as chips, CENTRAL to EVERYTHING you want and need (Bars + clubs) Literally won't get anywhere more central and value for money, if you're a group on a weekend away! There was... More

Unbelievably clean for a hostel and the location is very strategic as well. Lovely staff on top of that. There are free toast and coffee/tea at anytimr of the day. Nice lounge and kitchen as well. Definitely worth the money and highly recommended to anyone who wants a cheap place to stay in Newcastle.

Main rule, It's a backpackers hostel, not a hotel. You will sleep on a bunkbed in a dorm room. It's somewhere to rest your eyes on your travels. The price is cheap, its basic, its safe, GREAT location in the middle of the city centre. Pluses - 3 of us stayed in a 10 man dorm, and the hostel was... More

Not least the most confusing item is the title of this page (it's backpackers, not pacers...). It turns out I believe I have visited this hostel twice: once in 2006 as a solo traveller for a concert, and this time in 2013 for a stag do as a group of 10. At about £26/night for a shared room of 10,... More

10 of us stayed here for one night in June for a stag do and it was perfect for what we wanted. The guy on reception was nice and friendly and explained all the rules to us about behaviour, keys and bonds etc. The rooms were great. We booked 2 6 person dorms, each had 3 bunk beds in, nothing...

A very large, safe, well run and clean hostel in a great location in the center of Newcastle, U.K. Clean bathrooms. Shared rooms had card key locks on door which strengthened security. Albatross could not be more centrally located to bars, restaurants and attactions.
