We would like to thank our valued customers for their appreciation of our team's efforts; this will only motivate us to improve our services further. We are proud to announce that Hostelworld customers have voted Albatross- Backpackers In ! the 'No.1 Hostel in England'

This clean and modern backpackers hostel is located in Newcastle's City Centre. It is walking distance from sporting and musical venues, food markets, art galleries, historical attractions and great links to the local and national transport. We are a fantastic venue to stay at as part of the Hadrians Wall Walk and the Coast to Coast route.

Got the job done but it wasn’t very atmospheric. Staff was really nice and helpful to be fair, and everything was fairly clean, the vibe was just okay.

Unpleasant and uncomfortable. After booking a ten bed mixed room, we were placed in a four mixed bed room with no explanation or forewarning. The fourth person in the room was an older man whose behaviours made my friends and I very uncomfortable. The hostel staff were unable to move us into the larger room we had originally booked, and we could not find anywhere else to stay. We did not feel safe. Also disturbed many times in the night by people being sent up for a bed that wasn’t empty.
