Newcastle anyone?

I’m planning on going to newcastle upon tyne this month, 25-28 to be precise and I’m really struggling to find somewhere relatively cheap to stay!
There’s five of us and everywhere I’ve looked is either fully booked or too expensive. I’ve tried hostels, hotels, apartments…

Basically if any of you have any idea of where we could stay it would be a great great help.

Dublin baby.

Dublin is one of those places that honestly, you have to visit. Whether it’s for a day, a weekend, a week, whatever.

I went recently again for 2 days with 5 of my best friends and it was amazing as always. We were there to celebrate one of us turning 21 and it was the best place to go. Cheap flights over from Glasgow, cost us £30 each for a return flight.

We stayed in Gogarty’s hostel, it was our second time there as it’s a decent place to go. It’s clean enough, the staff are friendly, it’s a reasonable price. There really isn’t anything I could fault with it, plus it’s right on temple bar. Great if you’re there for a drunken weekend, which we were.

We got to know a bit more of Dublin this time, walking around more streets and finding our way about more. Which made us decide to go visit Dublin zoo… Most exciting part for me! I’m like a big child, been looking forward to going to the zoo for ages so it was great for me.

I would without a doubt suggest to anyone to go there, but maybe research what to do before you go as we always forget to. Typical… If anyone knows of any great things to do in Dublin please let me know for future reference would be great to find something different to do next time I go!

London, help?

So I’m off to london at the beginning of December and I’m looking for a decent hostel to stay in, only thing is I’m hopeless at this kind of stuff. I usually always go for hotels that cost a bomb but I want to try save myself some money. So anyone know any good hostels in London, preferably in the Kings Cross/Camden area? Any info or advice would be much appreciated!
