Alston Youth Hostel is a Visit England 3 Star Independent Hostel (franchised to the YHA) situated on the edge of the town of Alston overlooking the River South Tyne in The North Pennines and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Located directly on The Pennine Way and South Tyne Trail the hostel is the first accommodation you reach in Alston after the long walk over from Dufton via Cross Fell (the highest point of The Pennine Way).
We are also about half way on the ever popular Coast to Coast (C2C) cycle route which runs from Whitehaven/Workington to Tynemouth.
The owners Linda & Neil are keen walkers (Neil is a keen cyclist too) so understand what guests need after a long day’s activity! A hot shower, good night’s sleep, and a good hearty breakfast! And only a few minutes walk to a real ale pub! All can be found at Alston Youth Hostel!
