Me and my partner stayed here for a few days about two weeks ago when we first arrived to Newcastle. We googled a hostel for one night and we picked this one by chance, boy were we glad we stumbled on this place. Upon making our booking on the train, the woman who runs the place informed us she would...

The hostel is located a bit away from the city center, but there is a free bus going there all day. And it's close by the supermarkets and a nice mall. The rooms are very spacious and it's easy to see it used to be a home. The kitchen is nice and there is a good atmosphere. The hostel feels...

I stayed here during The Lions tour in June and loved it! Yes, it was a little far from town but that wasn't much of an issue for me. Upon arrival I was greeted by the manager Anna who was just wonderful and kind. After a speedy check-in, she showed to to my room (a 4 bed mixed dorm). I...

Appreciated staff letting us know we had 30 mins left to...

One of my favourite hostels so far. Picked up from the greyhound by the lovely and enthusiastic Anna, taken back shown to our rooms. What I liked was we were welcomed like guests not checked in and forgotten about like a lot of other hostels. Pool was lovely, kitchen wasn't the best in honesty but its clean (as long as...

We arrived in Newcastle to be picked up by Anna in her minibus. The minibus is in need of improvement. Anna was brilliant, she showed us around and directed us to all the right places to go. Not quite the same with the hostel room. We couldn't tel whether our sheets had been washed and the whole room was in...

I stayed at the backpackers with a few mates on a soccer trip in a 4 bed room. On arrival Anna provided us with every piece of information needed for our 3 nights in Newcastle, she was very helpful and friendly. We had no issues with the cleanliness of the hostel and it's facilities, and loved the hammocks, swimming pool,...

An excellent hostel!! The best thing about this place is the people who run it, Anna is a wonderful host and I felt at home here straight away. The kitchen and lounge area is great, and the pool is gorgeous even though I never got the chance to use it as the weather was poor :( rooms and bathrooms are...
