The outside of the hostel can make you a bit scared but after pass the upstairs door you will find a sympathic cheap place to stay. Free coffee and tea, camera everywhere but safe place, near from the center and good bars. Drinking on outside front stairs is forbidden, ahahaha :)

I had a great time during my 5 months stay at newton Lodge The hostel is very clean, comfortable and central that a lot of people choose to stay here longer than a few days. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help. Raccomanded

Kitchen needs massively updating (2 hot plates for over 60 people), sofas are old and worn with springs almost coming out of the cushion, beds creak even when breathing, pillows are dreadful, staff are rude, showers are good,...

It is going to be difficult to say a lot on this guesthouse: clean, quiet, well located and cheap- nothing particular. I slept in a dormitory, I had a locker which was helpful. I did a late check in thanks to the mail I had received indicating me the digit code and details-convenient.

We spent 5 nights here for a stop before our departure date. We stayed in an 8 bed dorm and we weren't expecting much as it was very cheap but it definitely met our standards and we were very happy customers! The shower and toilets were very clean! The kitchen was always kept tidy,there wasn't much space in the fridges...
