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

We spent five nights at Alnwick Youth Hostel before Easter. As a regular visitor to youth hostels, I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort of the beds - the mattresses are much better than any other hostel I've stayed in - proper full-size mattresses. The bunk-beds too are much better than many youth hostels, being full-size and wide - comfortable...

Stayed for two nights with family - rooms on suite with excellent showers. Free parking round back and lovely cooked breakfast to start day off and some good local pubs and restaurants all within walking distance. Great location for East coast - Farne Islands, Bamburgh Castle etc - friendly and helpful staff would recommend.
