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.

There's a fully equipped kitchen/lounge plus internet access. Highly recommended. ... more less
