Lively, friendly, affordable, fun place to stay”

price, staff, location

Very helpful and friendly staff on arrival. The showers and toilets were spotlessly clean and the dormitory was pleasant. The bunk bed was comfy. Downstairs the kitchen and outside space were very nice too, great to be able to make food and drinks and use the internet lounge. A little noisy later on, but it was saturday night in newcastle, so not for someone who wants a quiet sleep!

Location.

The staff are friendly.....make sure you print off your voucher before hand. I had to forward hostel staff email when I got there. Needed to cue to get onto the one computer....if others are using the one computer they have and Internet is slow. Pity they don't let you use one of the two computers on reception for such a simple thing. Toilet and showers are on a different floor...35m walk. Floor in shower wet with puddles....best thing was location. 5min walk from central station.
