Very nice place, great price, smack dab in the middle of newcastle, close to everything. they are equipped with nice showers, and a great kitchen! nice people too
Only downside i would give is that it is quite noisy at night. The hostel is on top of a nightclub and the music bleeds through. great for peple that like to party, but maybe not for those that need quiet to sleep, and go to bed before 2 am.
It was really clean for a "hostel/hotel" and the shower was great (warm) and big enough. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Even though the noise was adjusted in a message, it could have been declared a bit more, because the walls are very thin and from Wednesday to Sunday it gets extremely loud. So just make sure to really point it out :) And maybe you could make available to offer the basics in the kitchen, like salt, pepper, oil, as many guests are only checked-in for a couple of nights :)
Only hot shower is what I liked at the property.
I got poor management of self check in. They say that their reception opens from 4pm but it was just after 5pm when I got messages about self check in. And there was no keys in key box. I had to call and wait about 15mins in cold windy winter till a guy comes and opens door.
I like the structure of the hotel. And the staff at the check-in was really friendly and even give us some recommendations on places to visit around Newcastle for the next day. And they were even nice to provice ear plugs as the music from the pub will last till 3AM. Shared bathrooms were promptly taken care of and it was very clean! We enjoyed our stay even though it was only for a night. Would love to visit again next time.
With a stay at The Newcastle Hotel in Islington, you'll be within a 10-minute drive of Merewether Beach and Newcastle Beach. Featured amenities include ATM/banking services, coffee/tea in a common area, and refrigerator in a common area.
