Clean and well equipped hostel in a very convenient location. Portrait art on the walls really livened up the place as well.

Perfect for GNR stay
Stayed here over Great North Run weekend (Saturday) and would recommend - super central location, great atmosphere in the kitchen area, hot showers and rooms are spacious for a hostel. The others in my room were also running, so early nights all round! There is some noise from the street but to be expected on a Saturday night on Grainger Street.

Friendly and convenient location
Staff were amazing polite and friendly. Little issues were easily and quickly dealt with. The short walk from the station to the hostel made getting there very easy. Not top class but good enough for what you pay.
