    Location is quite central for Newcastle. Near the train station and bus stops that'll take you everywhere including the Stockton Sand Dunes. The hostel is very clean, and has all the amenities that one could need. The owner and staff are extremely friendly, the other patrons are very nice as well. Overall, a great experience!

    Loved it here, best showers ever! Quite a lot of flies in kitchen which wasn’t best but that’s pretty much the only thing I can fault. Staff were so nice when we let them know super late we would be checking in out of office times.

    Me and my friend stayed one night. The reception was very friendly and the facility was reasonably good, but we couldn't sleep very well because it was too hot in the room with only one ceiling fan going. But if I go to newcastle again, I would stay there again because it was very close to the train station.

    The hostel is clean and provides many cool stuff like a billiard table. The bathrooms are awesome but the reception times were more than inconvenient, so was the paying-process and the staff's support. Moreover, there was just 1 power point in the whole dorm room. All in all, the hostel is sufficient for a short stay but nothing more.
