Very exceptional environment. Few hostels give a sense of history. Facilities were exactly what one would expect.
Wonderful location and good atmosphere. Only drawbacks were a lack of wi-fi and breakfast wasn't complementary. Don't count on ambient light in the room this far from any cities. Just five minutes' walk from Hadrian's wall.
Great staff and free toast! Wi-fi was good and so were the facilities.
This was the best hostel I've stayed at, out of a sample size of about ten. It's a short walk to city centre, the staff are friendly, the facilities are great, and the atmosphere is tough to beat. I had a little trouble with the wi-fi, but I would definitely return.
Wi-fi was overtaxed in the evening, so many people were not able to join the network.
Good location, good price, but the wi-fi was spotty and the beds were cramped
This hostel has the best beds of anywhere I've stayed.
