Euro Hostel Newcastle, www.euro-hostels.co.uk/newcastle, has dragged hostels kicking and screaming into the 21st century. Services include a guest laundry, guest kitchen, meeting facilities, children's chill out room, free wifi and The Ware Rooms bar. Pretty good going when beds start from just £16 a night. We have worked with the team since this innovative budget accommodation launched. Savvy travellers look no further if you need a bed for the night.
