First time for me and my family in a youth hostel and no choice could have been better. The location is good to walk to center and to the Alnwick Castle but the excellent surprise was the hostel itself. The place has been lately refurbished (the Queen was there in June for the opening!!!!) and the place was very clean (what we were looking for). Yes, it is basic (you have to make your bed and there were no towels) but we expected it, so no surprise. Possibility to have breakfast in the morning ( I guess around £5) and different common rooms to use, with a common kitchen which proved to be very useful to set our italian breakfast. As a suggestion, some towels for guests (with a small fee) may be appreciated. Overall excellent value for money and more than we expected.

Dear filzam,

Thank you for your review - its always great to hear feedback from guests.

We have recently changed laundry providers and now offer lovely white bath sheets to hire if you haven't brought your own. We also stock a range of toiletres incase you run short during your stay. We also offer a buffet breakfast now for £5.50 which has a range of hot and cold items including pastries, sausages, bacon, fruit juices and bread for toasting.

Next time you are in Northumberland we look forward to welcoming you again.
