Stayed several times and always found it enjoyable. As an independent hostel it has a bit more personality than the YHA owns and I always find the owner to be friendly and accommodating and the hostel to be clean and in good order. On our first trip he took the time to recommend a couple of local walks and lend... More

Walking the St Cuthberts Way, this hostel is directly on the route. Lovely house, clean, comfortable bed, Staff very welcoming and helpful. If you wish to have a cooked breakfast, go to the Border Inn and prepay the night before, it is well worth the effort.

Arrived after day's hiking on St Cuthbert's Way. Met on arrival by friendly manager. Room was clean and comfortable. Shower not the most powerful but ok. Nice sitting room and big kitchen/dining room. No internet (or phone signal). Got on free wif at pub so not a problem. Will definitely return at some point.

Have stayed in this hostel on a few occasions that is now owned by Friends of Nature but affiliated to the SYHA. Very clean and a great location for cyclists, walkers and people touring. Self catering in large kitchen area. Dormitories or smaller rooms available.

This is a charming little hostel which is an affiliate of the SYH association, but owned by the The Friends of Nature. It was formerly owned by the SYH but has been sold and improved and updated since then. It sits in a serene little hollow, below the village green, at the end of the Pennine Trail (or beginning I...

Booked into this hostel as intended on staying overnight there during a two day canoe trip. On the day of the trip things went a bit wrong and we ended up getting held up. As a result one of the members of our party attempted to phone the hostel to make them aware we were going to be behind schedule... More

Whilst on a walking holiday 'St. Cuthbert's Way we stayed at Kirk Yetholm Hostel. The scenery is majestic. The Facilities are excellent - comfortable and spotlessly clean. We would definitely recommend Kirk Yetholm Hostel. A great place to relax and unwind, after walking in wet conditions, the views are spectacular.
