This is the 2nd time I have stayed at this particular metro inn, and I am very pleased with the accommodation. friday and saturday night. not noisy. The carpets are grubby, but the sheets, toilets and showers are clean. We brought a kettle and tea making things with us - although there is a kettle and microwave in reception for guest use - free of charge. You would need slippers/flip flops and a robe too, as the loos can be wet-floored from the self cleaning mechanisms. We stayed in a double room with a bunk above, and all 3 of us had a cheap but pleasant weekend stay - which leaves lots of extra pennies for the things we want to do in the daytime. Nearby Newcastle and Gateshead have lots to do, Metro shopping and great bridges. If you have an extension lead or double plug it would be useful, as everything we brought with us needed charging, and we had to 'queue' for the plug! There are two if you unplug the telly. There is free Wi Fi here too, and the Toby pub next door does cheap yet awesome food all day including breakfast, and a great carvery.
I love the little budget touches - such as the pull for the blinds being a cable tie busted through the blind with a little keyring on it. :-). this also has open wide-as-you-like suicide windows, so if you like - you can jump! But really nice as the room for us got really stuffy at night, and the heat rises so the person in the top bunk was overheating and the big gust of air from the window was very welcome.
I would heartily recommend this - as long as you know what you are getting! Could shock the unprepared.
