Once the town's Court House, now a new independent town centre youth hostel, Alnwick Youth Hostel welcomes guests from all over the world. The spectacular Northumberland coastline is only a short drive away to the east, the National Park and Cheviot Hills to the west. Alnwick Castle (of Harry Potter fame), The Alnwick Gardens and the beautiful medieval town all within walking distance. With 15 bunk rooms, all en-suite, from two to six-bedded, including some ground floor bedrooms, Alnwick Youth Hostel offers both families and independent travellers all the comfort you would expect from a hostel in a great location. We offer a tasty buffet breakfast to set you up for the day (and can provide a full catered option for group bookings). The hostel also has a comfy lounge, bright and airy dining room, games room, courtyard with outdoor seating and a drying room. Cyclists have use of a secure bike store onsite. Our reception staff are on hand to offer tourist advice, sell you a locally brewed beer or two and can even recommend a good cafe for a decent cup of tea. We look forward to welcoming you.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This hostel is very well located just a couple of minutes' walk from the facilities of the main road in Alnwick, itself a very stylish town. No evening meals were available in the hostel for my stay but I found a brilliant good value Italian kitchen just down the road. All the facilities you expect were in the hostel once you'd cracked the geography of this historic building.

We are not long back from a week at this youth hostel. We booked a room for our family of 5 and our friends had a room for their family of 3. It is basic, yes, but also spotlessly clean, run by friendly staff and was in the perfect location.

The kitchen space allowed us room to prepare picnics and suppers, the drying room helped us with beach towels and swimming costumes, and the children loved the games room.

If you can handle the occasional disturbance from other guests, or the noises in a town centre, and beds that won’t be as comfortable as at home, and see the bigger picture - functional accommodation that doesn’t cost the earth - then this is the place for you.

Northumberland is also stunning and, unlike Cornwall, the beaches are practically empty.

Alnwick independent Youth Hostel provided me with a welcome three day stay in single gender room of six bunk beds and own shower room. Loved it. Private rooms ensuite available. Fabulously friendly, helpful and proficient staff, all facilities there for every weather condition. Bus stop is close by. Felt comfortable, safe, good to go on adventures from there. Running in Alnwick and visiting the Playhouse cinema, discovering Alnmouth early morning, Belford Museum and Church and walking Bamburgh to Beadnell Beaches plus enjoying Howick Hall Gardens and Arboretum. All by bus - the little Travelsure 418 and x15/x18. Even connect up to holiday-packed Holy Island from Belford - so easy by bus and headache free.

Really liked the Hostel, its central location and the interesting people you meet there in the self catering kitchen. Good food offered by the Hostel for breakfast and evening dinner.

I booked directly through the YHA. Like the personal safety in recognised hostels. Alnwick YHA is of a high standard.

4 nights stay in this youth hostel, great welcome, lots of good Covid safe restrictions in place, one way system , lots of hand sanitiser stations, clean room, beds not bad, fabulous location, good parking, super hot shower.... but, and there is a big ‘but’ here, those bells, what on earth is going on with that, ringing at ridiculous times, not even particularly on the hour, awful noise throughout the night, was it a recorded bell ringing?!?

Maybe other rooms aren’t as noisy but with the busses, bells and next doors vans in front idling on the road from early morning we got very little sleep. We were torn between shutting the window (the only one that opened) and sweating it out in the super hot room or listening to the bells.

Also with lack of communal areas inside some form of seating in the courtyard would have been good. We got take outs from Alnwick on an evening but struggled to find places to sit and eat locally.

Northumberland is beautiful though, we’ll be back but definitely not at this yha.

An excellent place for our family reunion. I have stayed here before nd thoroughly enjoyed it as did all four generations of our family. The disabled access room does not have a window but that was not a problem. It is right beside the lounge, kitchen and dining room. It also has easy access to the street. The hostel has a bus stop just outside which goes to newcastle and other places. My daughter was so impressed that she wants to go back there.

Stayed for two night in a 4-bed room with my two children. Everything was perfect. The room and en-suite bathroom were spotless, the bed comfortable and to my surprise very quiet so I slept very well despite being a light sleeper. The games room with pool and ping pong table was the highlight of the stay for my son. The children also enjoyed the cooked breakfast, whilst I made use of the fully equipped kitchen to make my own. Staff was helpful and friendly. The free car park nearby very handy. We had a perfect stay and would love to come again in future. Thank you

We stayed as a family of three. Drove to Bamburgh to spend some time at the beach and stayed at this lovely hostel for a night before heading back to Cumbria. The hostel is placed very conveniently at the center of town and is within walking distance to pretty much everything you need including a car park. Greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our en-suite room which was very clean and spacious. We made full use of the self-catering kitchen and dining room during our stay so we were never short on food. Overall, wonderful hostel and very kind staff.

This hostel is perfectly located for visiting the Northumberland area. We (two friends and I) shared a room for 3 nights. The room was small though it had en suite facilities, and was ideal for what we wanted.

I was a bit hesitant about the church bells after reading reviews and the need for earplugs. Well we were lucky I guess as we had a room allocated to us at the back of the hostel and we never heard the bells once during our stay.
The staff were so friendly and helpful too..

One great bit of information for anybody considering going is that there is a car park just diagonally behind the hostel and it is free. I was told by the staff that all car parks are free in Alnwick - but there is a 24 hr time limit and then you have to be away 4 hours before returning. Not a worry when you are out and about all day wandering along the coastline exploring the beautiful beaches.

Covid rules were adhered to within the building, which was good to see. The communal areas were closed, etc, but that did not matter to us as we were out from early morning to late at night anyway.

All in all... a great budget hostel, ideally located, and good value for money.

Our friend hired the hostel for a weekend and we were privileged to be invited to join their house party. The venue was clean , comfortable and warm. We had an ensuite room with 2 bunk beds, with plump pillows and clean linen !
Plenty of space for guests to relax, enjoy a game of pool, etc. Lovely courtyard too.
Kitchen was clean , spacious and had a variety of pots, pans crockery and utensils to conjure up a delicious meal / hearty breakfast.

Close to other attractions such as Alnmouth beach, Alnwick gardens and Banter Books !

Both members of staff I met were so helpful and went above and beyond. One of them even came into work early so I could get my luggage out of storage in time to make my train home. Thank you so much. A wonderful hostel
