Incredibly clean and friendly. We organised dinner and breakfast and it was like homemade. Couldn't have done better at home. Easy check in. Very quiet in the evening. Lovely clean sheets and the bathrooms immaculate

I'm glad that there's a hostel in such an attractive town that's got such good road connections. I wish that we could have hand-soap dispensers in the members' kitchen, as we do now in the bathrooms/toilets, so that we don't have to use the washing-up liquid.

Thank you for leaving a lovely review. You must have missed the hand soap dispenser that sits on the hand-wash sink in the self catering kitchen. It was still there this morning. We are planning on installing hand soap dispensers in all the bathrooms when funds allow. Best wishes Andrew Hostel Manager

Very helpful and informative staff. Well equipped kitchen and cosy lounge. The room was spacious and the shower worked well. Free parking close by and we received a voucher towards the entrance of the Castle and Gardens.

A good value hostel in the (lovely) centre of Alnwick. It's clean, affordable and has some good facilities, including a games room, lounge and a safe, dry cycle storage shed. Rooms compact and basic but clean. Sleeping involves the usual hostel style make your own bed mode, with pillow cases, sheet, duvet and sheet style duvet cover provided. Private room...

Excellent hostel in the town centre of delightful Alnwick. Clean, secure and a very friendly welcome from the excellent staff. Very short walk into town for a wide variety of food outlets from fish and chips to Thai food. Castle and Gardens well worth a visit and the atmospheric Barter Books at the old station leave you with a thirst...

We called ahead because we were having problems with the trains and transport to Alnwick. The staff helped us a lot, gave us some numbers of reliable taxis and said he would stay late to check us in. Turns out our train got delayed, we had to be transfered to another train, and ended up almost an hour and a...

An easy booking and clean, comfortable, warm rooms. We had a great time. There is plenty of communal space and we never felt like we were treading on anyone elses toes. We went as a large group with each family occupying a separate bunk room and it worked perfectly.

Friendly staff, very good location, room is simple , functional and no frills, but who spends a holiday sitting in a room when there is so much nearby to experience? Close to the castle and gardens, and only half an hour from the Seahouses and a boat to the Farnes..

Location and facilities in the hostel are great. No nonsense - which I like in a hostel. Very nice, helpful and knowledgable staff. Alnwick is a cool place to visit with little alleyways, the castle and garden and the overall atmosphere in the town

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.
