“Perfect setting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013

This hostel was the perfect stay to celebrate my 40th birthday with family and friends. The photos on the English Heritage website don't do it justice! The kitchen is huge with a fantastic huge Arga that is fantastic for cooking for large groups. The dining area has plenty of chairs and tables to seat everyone at meal times. And the views are out of this world.
The communication between the staff before our stay was great and all of my pre weekend anxieties where soon put to rest.
I really can't rate this highly enough!!!!

I stayed here during a Weekend Classical Civilizations Trip about Roman Britain, The hostel itself is in a refurbished part of the fort, with a visitors centre/ Museum and a gift shop.
When walking the ground of the fort, there are some fantastic views of the Countryside and of what used to be a significant area during the time of the Roman Empire.
The rooms were very big and spacious and there were at least 3 bunk beds in each student room and a separate shower/ toilet facility for the residents of that room.
The staff are incredibly friendly, the food is great, there is a working TV, and phone signal, but no internet, but overall it is a top location, would definitely come here again.

I stayed here while doing the Hadrian's Wall hike. This "hostel" is an old folly manor house, but only open a few months in summer to the public. It normally houses the archeology team that works at the roman fort. Huge clean modern kitchen. The cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in. I got in without reservations, it is close enough to Housestead that most people will keep walking on to the next place. Very quiet and peaceful, and a welcome dry out and laundry day during the hike. No breakfast or nearby stores, reception did have some canned food for sale if you're desperate, which was welcome.
