A party pad has been blacklisted by Booking.com after neighbours complained that rowdy hen and stags were making life near it a "living hell".

Locals say noisy guests at the apartment at 1019 Walker Road cause "utter carnage".

Come Saturday, one neighbour sends her own son away for the night just so he can sleep.

"Living near it is like living in a nightmare," fumed one resident.

They added: "There have been fist fights in the street, shouting, drinking and some of the neighbours say they've heard people having noisy sex.

"At one point there was a working girl living there  - she even had a purple sticker in her car window advertising her escort agency."

Things got so bad, the landlord was threatened with prosecution unless things calmed down.

Following a flurry of complaints, both the council and police said the situation has improved - although locals say renters are still causing chaos.

"Just this weekend, a group of women - probably a hen party - had it and they hired a stripper," added a local.

"This bloke was just stood there in the street in a little g-string and his fireman uniform getting changed in the cold.

"It sounds funny, but it is hard work living here."

ChronicleLive spoke with several neighbours, all of whom shared similar horror stories of noisy booze-fuelled shenanigans in the middle of the night.

Police banging on doors in the middle of the night. Going to work without a second of sleep.

"Just the other week, someone was staying there and they must have brought decks with them," fumed another local.

"It was like sleeping near a nightclub."

Residents say the racket guests make is their biggest gripe.

Northumbria Police confirmed six complaints had been made to the force in as many months, including noise.

ChronicleLive made multiple attempts to contact the landlord, who was taken to court by Newcastle City Council in October over noise complaints but he did not respond.

The council imposed a Community Protection Notice on him following the complaints.

And after ChronicleLive made booking.com aware of the notice, the website took swift action.

A spokesperson said: "In the very rare and unfortunate instance that we receive reports of any unlawful behaviour at a property listed on our site, we take the matter very seriously and investigate thoroughly.

"Having now been made aware of such concerns with this property, we have removed the listing from our site, pending the full results of our investigation."

For some neighbours, the peace and quiet could be enough to persuade them to stay.

One told us that they had been to see their MP in a bid to move from then social house they live in with their family.

"It is horrendous, you have no idea how bad it is. I have to send my son to my mother-in-law at the weekend just so I know he will have some sleep - it is utter carnage at times," they said.

In terms of how customers view it, the response is mixed.

However, others were more critical.

Some slammed "overflowing bins" while one review added: "The entrance to the property was shabby - boxer shorts in the driveway, graffiti bin, weeds, broken glass, door was dirty."

The council said it acted following complaints and that it takes all reports of anti-social behaviour seriously.

“There has been a number of issues relating to noise and public disorder with this property which has resulted in a Community Protection Notice being served on the owner to protect neighbours living nearby," confirmed the spokesperson.

“This states a number of conditions that the owner must comply with and any further complaints regarding this property could lead to prosecution.”

Northumbria Police said while it may be the minority of occupants causing the problem, that shouldn't impact other people's lives.

A spokesperson added: "We recognise their cations can have a significant effect on some residents who can be made to feel intimidated or frightened in their own home.

“As a result, we take reports of anti-social behaviour incredibly seriously and are proactive in our approach in identifying hotspots and individuals thought to be involved, and taking robust action against them.

“Anyone with any concerns about anti-social behaviour in their area is encouraged to speak to an officer or call 101."
