Great location, fab prices, good food
Wifi doesnt reach upstairs (1st world problem lol)
Our room was "en suite" and suitable for 4 people at a fantasticly low price. Decor was smart the room looked out onto the lake. Optional breakfast was good value for money as was the competetively priced evening meal.
Parking space was limited but we managed to squeeze in between other vehicles.
Good showers. Great location.
Too busy. Self catering kitchen not big enough and poor design. No free WiFi. Tiny room
Towel for rent or buy.
Been here before 10 yrs ago. More impressive with everything this time!!
Location is incredible, the staff were very friendly and helpful, great service. The facilities are also fantastic. Good the deal regarding the room rates.
The rooms are very simple, not to expect a great comfort. However, it's absolutely worth it regarding cost/benefit.
Everything. Staff excellent
Eggs at breakfast. They had been standing too long. But thats a small point.
Location and staff were so very helpful
The view is fantastic and you could not find a better base to explore the Lake District
Beds really uncomfortable and rooms very hot
All this fine and appropriate for a YHA
Toilets a little untidy and shower space small.
Amazing location and views. Good kitchen. Nicely refurbished.
The location is excellent, staff are very helpful.
The hostel holds over 200 people and their self catering facilities aren't sufficient if most people are self catering. Big parties simply take over the cookers and you can't get near them. Would be fine off season I would imagine. Also not keen on the 'wet room' shower as your clothes tent to get splashed because there is nowhere to put them except next to you.
cleanliness late check in allowed cheap breakfast Location
very small room Uncomfortable bed No shower gel no free wifi..
Location was great, free parking amazing
our room was in the middle of two doors in the corridor and woke us up every time someone went through
Good bar and facilities, very busy and buzzing place.
Plastic covers on mattresses but understandable that they are used.
lack of boiling water for flasks
The location is the best thing about staying here. The lake is lovely. The rooms are spartan but clean. The staff were generally friendly and helpful. The breakfast,which is not included in the room rate, is adequate. The town of Ambleside is lovely and very close to many interesting sites.
The hostel is hard to find, especially in the dark, because the sign is tucked away to the side, not visible from the road,and not well lit. We found it very noisy with people staying up late on the lake and then groups of early risers leaving in the morning around 5 a.m. for excursions.
Friendly staff, excellent breakfast, wonderful location, very nice atmosphere. Staff who would always go the extra mile for customers.
Would like towels and soap to be provided.
location price rooms for larger groups of people
décor having to pay for the internet
Location close to the lake
Totally worth the money. Amazing Location, Great Price and Good food. This was my first stay in Hostel and it was really worth the money. Looking forward to Stay again with YHA
Need some air fresheners in common hallway.
Very friendly and helpful
Toilet out of tissues for 2 days
Problems with the water! The water would stop without warning and take ages to start again, (continually), very frustrating. Not sure if problems with the pipes or too many people using at once, but a basic fundamental that needs to be looked at. Otherwise excellent.
Very convenient for all the activities we required. Breakfast excellent, and evening meals very good.
