The place is situated in the middle of Berwick, entrance though a gate into a backyard. About 20 minutes walk from the train station. Nice and quiet. No reception area, you might find the owner or her "helpers" (students) in the kitchen. Make sure you let her know of your arrival time, otherwise she might not be present upon arrival....

I loved this place! I was travelling solo, off-peak, and ended up with no less than a dorm, two bathrooms, and the entire kitchen area all to myself. Everything was clean, tidy and welcoming, the one person I spoke too was friendly, and it's in a great spot for sightseeing. Hope I can stay at more places like this in...

This was my first solo trip to a hostel and I couldn't have chosen a better place than Berwick Backpackers. Angela and Ian made me feel welcome, safe and comfortable for my six day stay in Berwick.

The Rough Guide:-Not so much a backpackers (though there is a six bed dorm, incl linen and cont breakfast) as a self styled budget bed and breakfast The rambling place (part was once a shoe factory) has simple but smartly decorated en suite rooms available as single/twin/double and triple, one with a gallery, another with a private kitchen all very tastefully done.
