Location Historic building
The location is great for a group of walkers, and the food was good value walkers' fare
We were a small group of friends who were very well treated, especially at dinner where staff served us at table. Food was amazingly good value.
Being all together in the family room. The little woodland area where we could build bridges over the stream.
This wasn't a bad experience but the self service kitchen was outdated and the poor facilities not adequate for number users
There is nothing to say in this section as I liked everything!
Liked the location and the hostel was very spacious and staff very friendly and so we're all the other guests!
Breakfast, wonderful spring weather and the dream location.
Lovely older style hostel with superb walks from the door. Great food.
central heating a little on the warm side, but it was warm generally for the time of year.
YH manager Chris - extremely helpful. Evening meals - hearty fare and our two boys (under 10) ate for free! 3rd visit to the hostel and we would definitely return.
nothing. It was PERFECT.
The drying room was so efficient! Quiet hostel, stunning mountain views, v friendly staff. As a first YHA experience for the grandchildren-it has them hooked already!
Hard pillows Noisy room; above kitchen Would like to bring own wine please! Have particular taste!
Location was great for walking , views were amazing & staff very helpful ,
Beds were a little narrow No draft beer
We were welcomed on arrival - always a good start. The food was plentiful and good choices were available. Staff were courteous and attentive Location was excellent
Location;facilities; staff- especially, bubbly, friendly Louise.
The breakfast was much more than expected and really set us up for the whole days walking The staff here where more than helpful.
Small self catering kitchen, no heating in lounge, we were in Room 15 in the attic small door leading to it we had to duck down to get in and no heating although heater in room. Thin duvets and hard mattress, clothes we left in room became damp overnight. Evening meal was microwaved took ages to eat it, bland in taste.
Location, great large drying room, helpful staff, nice dining room, large and clean.
found the beds mattress too hard, and the self catering kitchen lacked decent cooking equipment.
I loved the location, the staff were friendly and helpful, saw lots of wildlife during our visit from red squirrels , badgers, foxes and woodpeckers. :-)
Having to be in by 11pm but understandable for YHA accomodation. Not much of a gripe!
Very friendly, smashing walking centre, short distance to local Inn & Hotel. Excellent breakfast at very reasonable cost. Overall an enjoyable experience.
Being charged more on arrival than the price originally quoted by booking .com
Very nice place, nice food and people
The bunk beds are not that comfy for adults and the food was rather average.
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!
Clean rooms and facilities Friendly staff Value for money meals and drinks
Hostel in need of repairs here and there, but charming nonetheless.
Location is prime here... Staff is also very friendly and efficient.
