I went here for the first time I been to Newcastle on the first Stag Weekend. This is a great city centre location which is cheap and secure. Lots of people turning up to have weekends using this location and not to mention clean beds. Not the most nicest of places but location for cost you could not complain being... More

We were 6 guys and stayed in one of the 6 bed dorms. The rooms were very spacious and the beds were good enough. The temperature of the shower was not adjustable and way too hot. The location of Albatross was amazing as it situated right in the middle of the city, close to shops, stores and city nightlife. The... More

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!

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
