    Superb

    24 Nov 2018
    There was not a single fault with the hostel what’s so ever! The staff was lovely from the moment we arrived to the time that we left, the security was exceptional as you could enter the first door but the 2nd door was locked you had to prove you stayed there by showing your room key before you was allowed fully into the building, great idea. Facilities was all clean and had exceptional use. Right in the centre of Newcastle in the middle of everything; pubs, clubs, shopping, Christmas market etc

    Fabulous

    25 Nov 2018
    Awesome location, super easy to find! Staff were very polite and helpful. The dorms/ bathrooms and toilets were great - so clean! Only being super picky but it was a little inconvenient that there was no wall plug by each bed. Instead there were wall plugs for everyone’s use in one particular spot. So whoever got the bed closest to it, was lucky (or not if someone had an early alarm :P). Would be awesome if they had pub crawls or something to boost the atmosphere. Otherwise, great hostel!
