“Lovely, cared for hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2007

A lovely, family-run hostel tucked close-in to the centre of Berwick-upon-Tweed. This hostel is clean, comfortable and well-maintained by Ian and Angela who live on site. A splendid 'do-it-yourself' breakfast (which turns out to be something of a feast) is included in the price. The kitchen is well-equipped for self-catering and nice touches like the flowers and photos on the bedroom walls indicate the care and attention afforded by the owners. Despite its central location (very convenient for shops and public transport), the hostel was quiet during my stay.

Berwick was our final overnight stop over after an 8 day motor cycle tour of Scotland, We used a variety of hostels during our trip and can easily say that Berwick Backpackers was the best place we stopped at. Great room, comfy beds, hot showers, splendid common room with a wonderful breakfast to start you on your journey.
The people who run the hostel are very 'biker friendly' and allowed us to keep our bikes in a secure courtyard. I wouldn't hesitate to strongly recommend this hostel to anyone !!

Better than anticipated. Room was very quiet, comfortable and secure. Didn't get a chance to use kitchen facilities but the kitchen appeared to be more than adequate for our needs. Owner (Angela?) was very helpful and seemed genuinely interested in us. Location is very convenient to Berwick (walked from/back to the train station) and Spittal. The (historical) bridge is literally 100 meters from the hostel. We have family in Spittal and we walked there and back each day of our visit. We will be happy to stay at Berwick Backpackers again on our next visit.

  • Liked — Location, Room Quality
  • Disliked — Felt a bit cramped

We stayed here for one night and we will be back. Set in a quiet courtyard in the centre of town across the road from the fantastic Barrels Ale House. Undercover storage area for our bikes and spotlessly clean
