    A fantastic time, the location, staff, facilities were excellent. We had a couple of issues on the first day but a quick chat with the staff and it was promptly rectified. Our room had a stunning castle view! A few more 'don't let the door bang' notices upstairs would be a bonus but we will certainly be returning! Considering our stay (adult and child) was in the middle of the school holidays we've had far noiser, less pleasant stays at hotels that have burnt a hole in our finances. Get booking!

    I cannot fault the YHA in Alnwick. It is housed in a lovely old house on a nice street opposite a bus stop with bus links to the coastal path. They bent over backwords to accommodate our late arrival off the last bus. The room was clean and serviceable and everything necessary was provided and catered for. We didn't sign up for breakfast but it smelled good! Self-catering facilities mad a good alternative.

    Some good facilities, such as the spacious and well equipped kitchen and large dining room. However, the mattresses are badly in need of replacement. I have slept in three beds at this hostel and I tried out several other beds to see if I could find a decent mattress. They are soft, badly worn and have springs protruding which resulted in me having several nights of very poor sleep and I became ill with back problems. Until the mattresses are replaced, sadly I will not be returning.
