Stayed at this hostel during a cycling trip through Northumbeland & The Borders. It has to be one of the the best accommodations I have stayed at, and the level of comfort and attention to detail was second to none. The host could not have been more welcoming. My room was at the top of the building up a set of quaint narrow spiral iron stairs, but once they had been negotiated, I was amazed at the facilities. For cyclists especially, this has to be the place to stay in Berwick, as there is bespoke cycle storage which has even been equipped with racks (although watch the low ceiling). 10/10 - a most enjoyable stay.

This slightly-hidden hostel was one of the most friendly and welcoming hostels at which I've stayed. The owner is incredibly welcoming and the location is off a nice quiet side street but only 5 minutes walk from central Berwick. Having cycled from Newcastle, the comfortable bed I slept in and the wonderful breakfast & porridge I had the following morning were most welcome! This hostel, which is more like a B&B, also has secure bike storage. I will definitely be visiting again!

I was very surprised when shown my cosy shared room at The Hideaway. It was really very quaint and had everything plus other well thought out comforts. My host Joan was very pleasant and obliging. Breakfast was included and while not a cooked breakfast, had good variety. There is NO parking except in the streets nearby but i was told by the police there were very few problems in this town. There is also wifi for 1 pound. I stayed 2 nights and would definately visit here again.

My partner and I travelled a cycle-track loop from Perthshire to Berwick-on-Tweed and back again, via Lindisfarne (Holy Island). In 10 days we stayed in a variety of B&B and Hostel accommodation, all of which was good. It was a great trip for meeting and talking with interesting people, particularly on the "St Cuthberts Way" part of the journey.

The highlight though was our short stay at the 'Hideaway Hostel' in Berwick on Tweed.
The owner/manager, John Morton has developed a distinctive and comfortable environment for his guests. The unique character of the place and its owner was greatly enhanced by John's knowledge of the town's turbulent past. His fluent descriptions of local history were told with great enthusiasm, in a most entertaining and informative way. It was a treat. Thanks John.

We stayed here while doing an art project over four weeks in a local school. it was a welcome haven at the end of a busy day. We felt very well looked after by our hosts. They went out of their way to accommodate our needs. Very comfortable, warm rooms. Everything you could need provided. Beautiful and cherished Elizabethan house. Brilliant breakfasts come as part of the package. Parking permits provided.

After a long day travelling it was such a relief to sit on a comfy sofa next to a roaring fire with a lovely cup of tea and chat to 3 architect students who were finishing a project on Berwick. I completely relaxed and forgot I was staying in hostel at all, it was so like staying at a friends house. My bedroom was tucked up under the eaves in this quaint, old stone rabbit warren of rooms, passages and spiral staircases. Everything was spotlessly clean, I had a very comfortable bed and an ensuite bathroom. Everything had been thought of making it a really pleasant stay. The included breakfast was the icing on the cake and offered great value for money.
