Forget any misconceptions you have about hostels being like run-down student digs, this city centre hostel is smart and modern, and a bit trendy. The rooms are clean and simple and there a variety of private room options to choose from, including a VIP suite if you want something a bit more special for your last night of freedom. The Ware Rooms is a cracking bar to socialise, watch live matches or relax before a night out in The Toon. It's all exposed brick and stylish interior, open from 7am serving breakfast (you’ll be pleased to hear), all the way 'til 10pm – you can even have a late night bite. There is also free WiFi throughout the building, secure storage in every room and a 24 hour reception for those who stay up way past their bedtime.
