We had a family ensuite room for 4 nights for us and 3 kids aged 12, 10 and 3. We had a double bed with a bunk above and another set of bunks. Quite roomy and a lovely shower. Didn't start well as we arrived at 2 pm in wind and rain hoping to set up while the weather cleared... More

Welcoming, well appointed and tidy Youth Hostel. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The Hostel was very clean. The surrounding area had plenty to do in the way of castles, beaches and walks. The kids loved it...

As per fire regs every room has a door closing mechanism which slams the doors closed. Sounds like a truck crashing into the building every 30 seconds. Wouldn't be a problem if people were more considerate but who am I kidding...the YH should sort out the problem. Plus it's very expensive and I'd have been comfier in my tent. Don't... More

No stranger to Alnwick but best day was walk along Coquet river at Warkworth then down to Amble and back. Unfortunately the BBC have given viewers the wrong information about The Hermitage during an episode of Robson Green's Northumberland. Viewers were lead to believe that you could cross the river by boat (the only way to visit) any day of... More

Two nights in a family room in a clean and tidy youth hostel. Self catering facilities fine, the kids enjoyed the games room, mum an dad the lounge. 2 minutes walk into town if you can't be bothered cooking; take-aways-a-plenty. Staff were fine, the guests were the usual eclectic mix, happy chatty people with tales to tell. Great location for... More

The communal area is quite nice and the kitchen well stocked but there is just a very districted area where you have wifi and not on the rooms. It was smelling badly in the hallways and the rooms have no charme. It is not a nice hostel to stay

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am sorry you felt the hostel was without charm and we didn't offer value for money, however this is not something that the bulk of our guests feel and tell us. We take pride in offering affordable accommodation for a range of visitors. We have a great returning visitor... More

We spent three nights away during the kid's half term break in February 2015. We stayed two nights at Berwick Upon Tweed YHA and one night in the Alnwick YHA. Having not youth hostelled in decades we were impressed overall with both places, though Alnwick will need to improve a bit in order to match the quality of venue and... More

I stayed for two nights with my three young boys in a family room that was clean and comfortable. We were made to feel really welcome -the children especially enjoyed the games room and lounge. I especially like the free washing machine and tumble dryer! The breakfast was great as were the self catering facilities - if at time a... More

Went with a group of guys straight after a weeks trekking - needless to say, it was a welcome rest, but one that was made all the merrier by the fantastic service here. Thoroughly enjoyed it, well worth the price.
