Stayed here recently for a hen do and it was just what we needed. Cheap, clean and right at the city centre. The rooms were spacious and clean and there was a large lounge and kitchen area downstairs. It did get slighty noisy at times but we expected it as newcastle is a popular party destination!

Booked the albatross for 2 nights for my 21st as there were 11 of us coming down from Scotland, managed to get a room of 8 and room of 4! Was perfect, rooms were right next to each other and bathrooms really clean. Unfortunately my 21st didn't exactly go how id planned, first night out in Geordieland (in Sam jacks)... More

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
