Albatross Hostel, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Good hostel close to the train and some nice spots
Well. I hope you like steps cuz my calves got huge staying here But as you know hostels are really based on who else is staying there and i met some great people my two days. Plus it was close to the train and had some good spots around to go out and party. Plus Craig at the front desk is a legend.

Perfectly fine--clean & safe with 24hr reception
Overall good value. Neighborhood and fellow lodgers were loud and boisterous, so bring earplugs. Good location. Decent kitchen situation (free coffee, tea, milk & bread) and social room--all clean. No wifi in the sleeping rooms. I would prefer all female accommodations. My room was three guys and me, and there was a frat boy stinkiness hanging in the air. Linens and bathrooms were very clean, thank goodness.

not bad
pros: friendly & helpful staff and good location cons: (depending on location within building) access to bathrooms, manual heaters that leave room cold unless you remember to turn hearts on, and no lockers within some rooms (I had to depend on staff to store my things)

Great location for partying just what u need
The hostel was great. view from room want good but there was working on that and improvements was going on. Loved the way no one could get in without having a card key. Although when I first booked it stated I didn't have to pay until on arrival but the hostel emailed saying the wanted the payment 2 weeks before or my stay would be cancelled. Also the website did state 25 pound deposit but wasn't clear that that was per person.
