    Superb

    Great hostel centrally located in Newcastle. Staff were fantastic, and obviously really like their job. My room had metal bunk beds, which were a bit squeaky when sleeping, but not too much of a bother. Have stayed before, and would stay again.

    I enjoyed my stay! Staff was very friendly and helpful. They offer free tea and coffee which is nice. And the location is great: right in the center of Newcastle. Thank you for the great time at Albatross!

    Very Good

    Great location, right by the train station, staff were friendly. Only criticism is that it was extremely noisy inside the hostel in the early hours of the morning, we stayed on a Saturday night but still didn’t expect screaming in the corridor and banging on doors at 2am. Perhaps a noise deposit/fine/staff checks on the floors would help deal with this! Also it was VERY hot, the heating was on full blast the whole time, made the room sweaty & smelling of BO and the lounge too hot to sit in.
