A great hostel with great, and very well maintained facilities and lots of little extras. Very well situated with easy walking access to the shops and has a bus stop just outside. I felt very welcome and the staff were very pleasant, professional, helpful and knowledgeable on the area and local services. Being a single lady on my own I...

We stayed at Alnwick for a weekend wedding. We booked a double ensuite room for two nights. The guy who runs it was super accommodating and let us check in early to get ready. He was really helpful with taxi numbers and things to see and do. I've never stayed in a UK youth hostel before and was slightly apprehensive......

Great property in the heart of Alnwick, very spacious, ideal for our multi-family group. Good ensuite facilities, great communal areas, games room for the children, very helpful staff and delicious evening meal cooked for us on the premises. We'd love to go back!

Great weekend away with our group - exclusive use of the hostel suited our needs so well. Third time we have been - highly recommended. Hostel great for couples, families and groups with excellent service at reasonable rates.

It was really good. We loved the games room and the lounge. It could do with a bigger cooking pot or mixing bowl in the kitchen but apart from that it was great. A great base to explore the Northumbrian coastline.

This hostel is very central to Alnwick and is purpose-built although within an old building. Facilites were very good and the staff excellent. We had the cooked breakfast one day and that, too, was very good. Of course this is a hostel at the end of the day but I believe all rooms are en-suite and we would happily return...

Fantastic hostel in a great location. All rooms are en suite which is great for family stays. We stayed in a room for 4 and found the bunk beds to be very comfortable. The shower was very powerful. Nice helpful staff too.

Once the town's Court House, now a new independent town centre youth hostel, Alnwick Youth Hostel welcomes guests from all over the world. The spectacular Northumberland coastline is only a short drive away to the east, the National Park and Cheviot Hills to the west. Alnwick Castle (of Harry Potter fame), The Alnwick Gardens and the beautiful medieval town all within walking distance. With 15 bunk rooms, all en-suite, from two to six-bedded, including some ground floor bedrooms, Alnwick Youth Hostel offers both families and independent travellers all the comfort you would expect from a hostel in a great location. We offer a tasty buffet breakfast to set you up for the day (and can provide a full catered option for group bookings). The hostel also has a comfy lounge, bright and airy dining room, games room, courtyard with outdoor seating and a drying room. Cyclists have use of a secure bike store onsite. Our reception staff are on hand to offer tourist advice, sell you a locally brewed beer or two and can even recommend a good cafe for a decent cup of tea. We look forward to welcoming you. ... more   less
