Newcastle upon Tyne is becoming very popular with backpackers exploring the UK on a budget. Hostels provide cheap accommodation and a social environment where you can meet new people, or save a fortune in comparison to Newcastle’s hotels, which typically cost more than £50 per night.
There are three hostels in Newcastle and they are located in the city centre. Accommodation in Newcastle City Centre is ideal as most of the main attractions, shops, restaurants, entertainment venues and nightlife are concentrated within walking distance.
