Nice relaxed, clean hostel with helpful staff friendly people staying there who all socialised in the evenings with pool or TV. Decent kitchen facilities and bathrooms and the pool looked nice though I wasn't quite brave enough to go in! It seems to be more long-term stayers than backpackers, but I may have been there at a quiet time and also I was not there over a weekend to fully judge how lively it was. Convenient location, fairly easy to walk anywhere or use buses and trains.

Really nice hostel - modern, good facilities, great staff, and clean. Lots of long term people, clearly great for people who are working. It's a shame Newcastle doesn't have loads going on!
