    We went here for our football tour 8 of us split into 4 rooms. It's just what we needed we had 2 lots of bunk beds in both rooms which were comfortable and you share the showers / toilet area but you could always get a shower easy without waiting. Deffo recommend if your on a low budget or just want a bed for a couple of nights on the piss. If you look after your room and key you get your £25 deposit back.

    I recently stayed here for 3 nights. The hostel was super clean. The wifi worked great which is always good! It was nice that they provided tea and coffee. The staff were super friendly... all of them.
    I will definitely stay here again if and when I come back to Newcastle.

    The place is centrally located but unfortunately the walls are paper thin and the windows are really old. We were woken up several times during the night. Toilets were not v clean. Staff seemed polite enough.

    Fantastic little hostel ideally located within a few minutes walk of all major transport links. Right in the heart of the city in Grainger Town, easy access to all city centre attractions, shopping and dining as well as convenient to travel further afield being within spitting distance of the train station and metro.

    Decor is a little quirky, with the likes of Steve Irwin stencilled on the walls, but was a pleasant building to be in.

    Rooms were clean, comfortable beds and great shower and bathroom facilities. Only downside is that there are currently no lockers in the rooms to keep your stuff in, though there is a free to use secure lockup near reception. I had no qualms about leaving my stuff in my room though as the staff were ever present and the other guests were friendly, polite and generally didn't get any bad vibes.

    Great kitchen facilities, dining area and common room with comfy seats, TV, and plenty of charging points for all the various electronic paraphernalia people travel with these days!

    Free tea, coffee and toast as well as the ability to store your own food, though I barely used the kitchen as Newcastle is chock a block with great places to eat out. There is a take something, leave something tray for food and drink which I find quite nice, makes it feel more communal. Thanks to whoever left the Punk IPA (good taste), and I hope someone enjoys the Waitrose shortbread I left in return!

    Staff were fantastic, friendly and professional. Almost felt like I was visiting friends rather than being a paying customer at a place of business. I found the other guests polite and friendly too, which is always important when travelling and staying in hostels.

    Would definitely stay here again when I come back to Newcastle, great city, great hostel.

    We only stayed for one night but was pleasantly surprised. It was clean, comfortable and warm. It's very basic and perfect for a cheap central stay in the city. The shared bathroom facilities could be better. The shower I used was cold and the water took an age to drain. Would I stay here again? No but that's just my opinion. Would I advise others to stay here? Yes I probably would to the right people.
