Very basic facilities but the cheapest hostel in Newcastle so you get what you pay for. Staff were lovely and even picked me up from the station upon my arrival


Not sure why we had to pay £4 extra cause it was a Saturday when we had the 8 dorm room to ourselvesson friday + saturday night.


Staff were brilliant (as were the dogs-Herby and Larry), Paul and Anna helped us whenever it was needed! Rooms were clean however as Anna said she is hoping to upgrade them soon, overall brilliant place! Would definitely stay again!


Thought the staff were lovely and very helpful, told me the activities to do and how to get there etc. the hostel was very clean and especially appreciated the huge TV and big selection of films available! Especially good if there's rainy days.


I really enjoyed my weekend at the Hostel. The bedroom was confortable, the bathrooms were clean and the living room was warm and nice, as the kitchen. The place was friendly, with nice (and beautiful!) people and a lovely dog, Herby!


Only stayed one night but I liked it, very nice house, cosy, spacious dorms and very friendly staff who told me everything about Newcastle. Only little annoyance was the location but they organise shuttle to get to the bus station


Absolutely loved our stay at the Byron Beach Resort. We thought the planned activities were a great idea as well as the free bike and surf board hire. Only complaint was the time it took for us to check in. We got in off the early greyhound at 7am and we had to wait until 12 to get our room. Totally understand check out is at 10 and the cleaners need time but we were getting put into a brand new room that we were first to sleep in so waiting till 12 was completely irrelevant.


Nice place in a quiet residential area. Very friendly staff.
