Euro Hostel, Newcastle
Easy to find, although I wouldn't have gone the way instructed.
Reception good, Breakfast was served in the attached pub (The Warehouse) which also provided OK good value pub meals in the evenings up to 11p.m. Cool chill out room and free Wi-Fi. The kitchen was well equipped but had odd opening hours. Reception were happy to open up for but that is inconvenient for both parties. No notice displayed giving opening hours, I can't wait until 10.00 for my first cup of tea and when I went to put milk in the fridge one evening I found the kitchen locked earlier than it should have been. There was some noise from the corridors and rooms with people coming and going which is generally to be expected in hostel accommodation - and after all it is Newcastle. Every thing was fine until I got to the room - it was windowless and was furnished with a set of bunk beds, a TV and a small clothes hanging unit - no where to sit or put a laptop even though Wi-Fi was available in the rooms, no locker. The room was very hot and stuffy but there was no temperature control or air conditioning (sorry, there was a fan on the floor). There was only a fire evacuation plan displayed, no written instructions and certainly nothing easy to read in the panic of a fire alarm going off. There were positives, the en-suite was clean and pleasant, the bed was comfortable and I could work the TV (even without instructions)
My disappointment with the room was exacebated by the fact that Late Rooms were telling me I was saving £90 per night on a single room. Now, I am savvy enough to know that you don't get single rooms in hostels at £120 per night but I had I expected a cut above. - this room was the worst equipped I have ever stayed in bar one at Sydney airport. I paid through Late Rooms £29.00 - the walk-in rate is £29.00 so in fact I made no savings. Plus, had I walked in I would have gone for a bed in a shared room at £16.90 .
