We (my friend and me), stayed for one night in the backpackers. The owner and the manager where nice and friendly. They gave us some information about the area and what we could do. In the evening we where just hanging around in the hostel, chatted with people and played some games. Exactly what you need to do in a...

Intended to stay only for a night but It was so easy going and nice there, that I decided to stay little bit longer. Easy to park also, right in front of the house, by the streetside. There are some simple house-rules to follow, but they are essential to keep the kitchen and lounging area clean, organised and pleasant to...

It suited my needs perfectly, as it gave me a quiet comfortable dorm bed and access to a well organised kitchen and sometimes access to a bicycle. The hostel consists of a newish purpose built communal area, with kitchen, pool, hammock space, bbq area etc at the back of two older houses which contain the dorms/bathrooms etc. The hostel is...

I visited on the weekend, for a conference. My initial impression was that the facilities were a bit run down, but I was blown over by the friendly people that I met while staying there. The location was convenient, being walking distance from Beaumont street too. I have to mention James, one of the long-term residents especially, who struck up...

Was a great experience, even though their was some confusion with our bookings (they thought we were 3 people not 3 rooms full of people) they made it work for us even adding beds to rooms so we could be together. Upon returning at three am we were quiet welcome to stay out in the common area and continue our...

Booked a double room here, on arrival we were told there wasn't one available so we could either leave or take the 4 bed shared dorm, everywhere else in Newcastle was fully booked as it was surf fest so we had no choice but to stay! Didn't get to have a proper view of the room until night time as...
