Score from 55 reviews Very good
The staff are very friendly and welcoming. There are plenty of showers and facilities available. So near to many amazing walks and a nearby pub. The meal portions are generous and inexpensive. There is no wifi but it is not really that sort of location!
The bunk beds are not that comfy for adults and the food was rather average.
Clean rooms and facilities Friendly staff Value for money meals and drinks
Location is prime here... Staff is also very friendly and efficient.
Hostel in need of repairs here and there, but charming nonetheless.
furniture and clean
Loved this hostel. Staff brilliant very helpful, Breakfast was fantastic value, clean, welcoming. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others x
Evening 3 course meal was excellent value. They also sell bottles of wine very reasonably priced. Superb location. Beds very comfortable with lovely clean bedding.
Good facilities. Great to have no wifi as then the place was populated by seriouswalkers. great big drying room an asset.
Remote, unspoilt, simple.
No separate tting rroom.
facilities and location were top notch. Staff were very helpful.
Needs a slightly bigger car park and cooler in rooms, it was boiling.
The location was fantastic Meals were good value and tasty.
First time ever in a Youth Hostel but was very impressed The staff were fantastic and the food excellent value. The setting was ideal as we were swimming Butteremere and great to have somewhere to dry the wetsuits
Good sized members kitchen and loung area.
Curfew at 11pm. 12 pm would be better, or a key code on the door.
Tiny room with a double bunk and a bathroom the size of a shoebox described as s twin ensuite room. Poor value for money.
Scenic quiet area of the lakes district. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Hostel food was great. Large cooked breakfast if you wanted, packed lunches and good evening meals all reasonably priced. Good walking nearby. Also close to the small village of buttermere with pubs and cafe.
Beautiful location, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable bed. A total bargain for the price paid.
The middle class hippie guests letting their children run riot with no parental supervision (not the hostel's fault, I might add)
nothing - just didn't sleep too well ? not your fault......
The location was perfect for exploring the local area and walking. Staff were friendly and helpful. Great value for money meals as well as two pubs that do food as well as great beer.
Car parking was a bit difficult in part due to the lack of setting out. Parts of the inside are getting a bit worn and need maintenance. Lack of variety in the food menu.
Excellent eve meal, lovely pot of tea after 9 hours walking in foul weather. Warm, good drying room.
I want to know why you include bottled water in the packed lunch. People have their own water bottles and bladder systems etc and you can get water from the tap! I asked for something else to replace water and was told that an email from on high said that no replacement could be made. What about a small carton of juice please. I resent having to be charged for water. It's a rip off and unnecessary. Luckily for you I left it on principle so that's a bit more profit you made. Also why don't youth hostels have more hooks in rooms to hang your stuff on? There were only 4 in 4 bunk room, one each! There's loads of wall space for more. Breakfast was from 7.30 but no cooked food was ready until 20 mins later and then only some stuff and we needed an early start. Not good.
Verygood all round staff and food excellent brilliant location will defenatly go again thanks to all
The whole pay gag was top class
nice stuff，clean room，lovely trip
friendliness of staff
mud and bogs !!!!
The manger was very rude on arrival after booking in advance a 2 night to be told after a 4 hour journey to get to the YHA that my second night I would have to find somewhere else to stay as another group was coming that night!!! I was very upset in the way it was delt with
It's a long time since I slept in a bunk bed
