We offer individual beds up to full dorms – whatever your needs, we can cater for any party. Offering exceptional value for money, the Albatross is the place to stay in Newcastle.

Our accommodation is within easy walking distance of sporting and musical venues, food markets, restaurants, pubs, night club, art galleries, historical sites, theatres, and all of the great shops our great city has to offer. The building is approximately 150 years old and was previously a bank. It still retains a lot of the old features, which add to the charm when staying at the Albatross.
