This YHA is a chilled out place for everyone who are into the outdoors
The location and friendliness.
Floorboards above kept me awake but I am a bad sleeper
Chilled out cool relaxing YHA
Wifi was a bit flaky, but tbh, it's great to get away from things like this anyway!
Staff are very good, facilities too. Great location for access to the fells.
Wifi not great!
Food was varied and good value, pod was very comfy and heated, good atmosphere in the living areas. Bar was a bonus!
internet connection very poor
countryside surroundings provide complete peace and tranquility
We lived in a Pod. It was a positive experience but these things could be done better: 1) No wall hooks in a Pod. It was impossible to hang even a damp towel. No place for jacket also. 2) Only two 220V sockets - both used for lamp and heater. No socket for phone charger etc.
1. Very friendly and helpful staff. 2. Nice Pods (we lived in one of them). It was warm enough inside a Pod even in December. 3. Friendly and outdoor-active community.
excellent friendly staff good location wonderful food
cosy pod for 1 adult/2 kids Food Lounge areas Table tennis Location Friendly staff
Very cold in the room when we first arrived. Difficult to get the room to warm up.
Very cozy, great food.
Wifi not available in the room was a bad thing.
The location, the friendly staff
Nothing it was all good
Showers were new and clean but only two for camping field and pods so in summer this would get very busy and only one toilet !

Location The staff The bar The room The shower The 6% local ale
The room was a bit smelly and the floor not very clean.but for a hostel it was a good accommodation.
The hostel is beautifully situated and the lobby-bar is quite charming.the prices are very high at the lake district but you have here a good alternative.

Parking was a bit of a nightmare, but I think this was unusual as the hostel was very busy.
The people staying in the hostel were really friendly, did not feel uncomfortable being on my own at all. Self catering kitchen was brilliant.
stunning view all around the place
The self catering facilities. Our pod. Great atmosphere, food and location.
