Travelodge Newcastle Central

Sure it might feel uninspired, but if you’re looking to do your Newcastle stag on a budget, you’re more interested in results than anything else. That’s what the Newcastle Central Travelodge has to offer. Situated a short 15 minute walk from the train station and with prices as low as £29 a night, you’d be hard pressed to find a comfy bed at a lower price in the city.


If a central location is more important to you, then the Albatross hostel right on Granger street is the perfect place. For the low price of £34 you’ll get a bed in a 6-bed dorm that’s within spitting distance of all the best nightlife in Newcastle, meaning it’s more than likely you’ll save the extra few pounds compared to Travelodge on not paying for a late night taxi back after deciding the walk down to the quayside isn’t worth the effort. If you book early enough, there’s even a reasonable chance that your group could book out the dorm room, provided you’ve got the right number of people, which could only add to the stag do fun.

Sleeperz Hotel

If easy travelling is what you’re focused on, then the Sleeperz Hotel could be the ideal option. This hotel is directly next to the central train station, meaning all you’ll need to do on your hangover is roll out of bed and into a carriage. It’s a bit pricier at £44 a night, but that’s the price you pay for convenience.

All prices were accurate at time of writing, but it’s worth playing with different days of the week around your chosen dates to see how costs vary. 

Budget Bars For A Newcastle Stag Do

No doubt this is what you’ve all been waiting for. If you’ve picked Newcastle for your stag do, the UK’s mecca of raucous nightlife, it’s more than likely that you’ll be spending a good part of the weekend imbibing. However, as anyone who’s been out in a city before can tell you, it’s all too easy to get rinsed on price by showing up tipsy to the wrong establishment. A round of cocktails always seems like a great idea, until the next morning. To help you avoid this unfortunate reality, here are our top picks for bars to visit on your budget stag do in Newcastle:

Bierkeller Newcastle

Who doesn’t love a pint or six? At the Bierkeller in Newcastle you’ll find beer and cider galore at prices that are more reasonable than you’d expect for such a busy venue. With full steins for as little as £6.50, a huge range of different music nights and cheap shots, it’s no surprise that the Bierkeller is a favourite of students and working adults alike on nearly every day of the week. 


If beer isn't what you want to stick with for the whole night, then you may want to try the Jalou in Newcastle. With great value options like a bottle of wine for £10, glass of prosecco for £4 and 50% off all cocktails on Thursday, you’d struggle to find more variety at low prices than at Jalou. 


If you’re talking about Newcastle nightlife on a budget, the real sin would be not mentioning Sinners. When it comes to getting bang for your buck in your alcohol, you can’t do much better than the #1 trebles bar in the city. With the near legendary Newcastle ‘trebs’ on offer for £3 on the weekend, and even less on special weeknights, you’ll more than manage to drink your fill for the price of a pizza at Wetherspoons.
