If you spare just a 2 days or less in Newcastle ...you can stay in this hostel, the kitchen is really good, and you can prepare your own food, the internet lounge is great. The rooms are good ( just for sleep), the toilets are ok.

I came here not really expecting too much for some reason and was pleasantly surprised about how nice the hostel was! The rooms were well spacious and the beds comfortable with plenty of bathrooms available in the building. The common area was huge and seemed like it would be a good place to meet people (I only went in there... More

I stayed here on a Friday night after I'd finished the 80+ mile Hadrian's Wall walk. I found myself in a room with 5 girls who were still getting ready to go out until around mid-night - they couldn't care less that someone else in the room was trying to sleep. Apart from the lack of sleep, the facilities were... More

I was on a trip through England for the month of June and this was my last stop on my journey before returning to England. I have to say that was the worst of the lot in my travels for a number of reasons. When I traveled to Newcastle I was not aware of its party lifestyle on the weekends... More

It is very basic, 9 of us stayed in a dorm on the third floor with 10 beds and only 2 plug sockets! Great central location, 2 minutes from station and very close to a lot of bars! It is very clean but it was a walk downstairs to the toilets and showers! Bit of pain when your hungover and... More

We went to Newcastle as a group of LADS for a joint 50th and 30th birthday party with our football team. the location of this hotel is perfect and you get exactly what you would expect: a fit for purpose bed, good staff and a useful common room (watching the World Cup). The staff do a good job at setting... More

We visited the hostel in January for a friends 21st. We were surprised by the comfort and how clean it was for the money. It was also in a great location. What really made our time there was the friendly and amazing staff. Unfortunately on our first night out, the birthday girl knocked her front tooth out on a bucking... More

I would not recommend anybody to stay in this hostel if you want any sleep. I have come home absolutely exhausted due to the drunken party go-ers who don't care if they wake anybody else up in the hostel. There was also constant banging and crashing noises come from rooms above and around the hostel. I complained to the reception... More

This is all you need warm comfy bed, fridge, TV, Cooker, wifi and great art on the wall. Bargain price But then I did have an 8 bed dorm to myself. I see it's not quite as good if you get lumbered with a dorm full of drunks.

I would not recommend this hostel to actual backpackers due to the fact that on our visit, the only people I saw were large groups of stag and hen parties, and other groups needing a place to stay in the city centre for a night of drinking. Yeah it has a great location but noise is the downfall so if... More
