.................................................................................................... Excellent value since hostel is modern, clean and secure. Location is superb being located close to Newcastle railway station. We stayed as a stag do group and would recommend this hostel to any other groups looking to stay in the area.

Staff were every friendly. The hostel seemed quiet on arrival, maybe because it was a Wednesday in the beginning of June. The room and WC were tidy. However, I woke up several times in the middle of the night with people running in the corredor and also screaming. This was distressing as I could not have a good night of... More

We booked 3 x 4 man rooms. The hostel is extremely clean particularly including the linen and bathrooms. Staff are friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, 5 mins from train station, range of bars/restaurants on the same street. Coffee and Toasts was included and there is a cafe next door if you needed more. Overall highly recommended.

Stayed here with 8 other girls for a Hen Weekend so we had a dorm to ourselves. Bunk beds were comfy, although they need updating as a lot of the top bunk metal racks were snapped. Room was immaculate and so were the showers/toilets. Great central location and great prices. Would definitely stay again!

Stay here everytime we visit Newcastle. Great place, clean, brilliant customer service and atmosphere. Mix of people and very secure. Great for long term stay or short stay. Beds need updating a little as some had broken metal but mainly cosmetic damage

Very centrally located - good for transport and if you want to 'go out' in the city centre. There are cheap laundry facilities, the rooms are clean and aired, a large space for cooking, and free toast and coffee 24/7. The wifi isn't very good on the whole but it does work. Girls have their own bathrooms which is good... More

Hostel was adequate in good location but rooms were bare minimum though clean but cold. Kitchen and lounge were good. The laundry was difficult to use and the instructions did not pertain to the 'new' machines
