    Stayed here for a rugby weekend. Very friendly staff. They really couldnt do enough for us. The facilities were clean and perfectly good for a hostel setting. Location is excellent near to the train station and a few minutes from the city centre.

    Great hostel! The location is awesome and it’s a pretty great price! The staff all seem really cool and the rooms are nice. The showers aren’t amazing, it’s the push button showers and they are either really hot or really cold - no real in between. I also found that my bed wasn’t the comfiest. Everything else was good though!

    A good hostel in an excellent location. It is really cold everywhere though, rooms have heaters which you can turn on but all the common areas are just freezing. Clearly many people use this hostel to go partying in newcastle, massive groups of lads checking in all the time. Socially, to normal people it's not great. Witnessed dryhumping in the common kitchen,weird stuff happening everywhere. Thats not the fault of the hostel though, staff was really great and nice! Would come here again.

    Big hostel in a central location right by the train station. Security was good with key cards for the front door and rooms. It has a large kitchen and a small lounge, but the atmosphere is really lacking here. Newcastle is a party town so on a weekend it just felt like a place that guys crash after a night of drinking. The rooms are large, but could be cleaner and beds are not the best. Staff were super nice and welcoming. A fine place to crash, but just don't expect a good night's rest!
