Two friends had seperately recommended Berwick YHA so the high standard was no surprise. I booked a twin en suite room for 3 nights at a total cost of £75. What not to like! You have to make your own bed but linen is supplied. You need to take your own towel. The room was clean, warm and comfortable; more basic than some hotels but in much better condition than many.
We booked breakfast for the first morning at a cost of £4.95 per person. It was OK but nothing special and we chose to use the excellent kitchen facilities for the remaining mornings. We also self catered dinner one night whilst eating out at local restaurants other nights.
The hostel has an excellent cafe which served the best vegetarian paninni I have ever had and made a good cup of coffee. The cakes looked good too though I didn't get round to trying them. The cafe seemed very popular with locals, which always bodes well.
The hostel is ideally situated for exploring Berwick and a wider area. For us its close proximity to the A1 and a short drive to Lindisfarne made it perfect for a birdwatching break. We will be heading back there in spring.
