Food great and soup especially good.
Would have loved some mustard for English Breakfast!
Being able to shelter before opening times. The layout and rooms, very cosy. the friendliness of the temporary warden
Having to pay £138 for a two night stay on my own in a 4 bed room.
It's a lovely location; our room had a view across the village green to the north Pennines. There is a well-stocked kitchen, basic supplies in case you forgot your own, nice places to sit and eat, a bike shed, a lovely garden. The staff are friendly and helpful. YHA facilities tend towards the basic, but they are all clean and in good condition, bunk beds didn't wobble, loos didn't smell.
Movement sensors on the lights in the bathrooms; be warned, if you stand still in the shower (or sit still on the loo) you will be plunged into darkness!
Staff, cleanliness and location
Rooms are far too small (me and my 6' tall 17 year old son). The beds were too short and creaked. Even the separate loo was an incredibly tight fit.
Very helpful staff, comfortable environment (also with some character), lovely meals available to order, good location.
The friendliness of the place and staff. The location was great, will be back for leisure - walking. Wonderful breakfast set you up for the day. It felt comfortable and homely.
the kindness and attention of Simon to get things good for everybody. The whole environment (nature, the pub just near the YHA...). Breakfast. The location (bedroom, eating room). The games for everyone. The garden. The common room was so pleasant ! We'll get back there as soon as we can !
we spent two hours to go there (but it must be a problem with the reading of our map...). And the night was too hot (but the weather was very good, and unexpected, so we couldn't avoid it).
Friendliness of staff and other guests. Great breakfast, excellent value for money
Location on Pennine way, friendliness of staff
It felt a bit like entering a sanctuary. Couple in charge runs a place with great sense of dignity and take pride in the work they do. To reach this remote location we drove on narrow roads through beautiful scenery and old villages and towns. The effort to maintain the character of these old places is evident, and deserves high praise.
tea cold at breakfast as was breakfast
Friendly and helpful staff Excellent evening meal Perfect stop for Pennine Way
Simon was lovely and very helpful , beds lovely
filthy cushion on chair in room so no where to sit
The Hostel, facilities & Staff were excellent however in our room there was a considerable amount of mould growing on the wall next to one of the bunk beds.We only stayed for the one night as booked. I would have mentioned it had we stayed longer but I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Lovely youth hostel. Great village setting opposite an excellent pub that serves decent pub meals. YH staff very helpful and friendly.
Very comfortable and homely. Lovely old house. Beautiful garden. Very good value, simple 3 course dinner. Well cooked breakfast. Very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent tea and coffee making facilities.
Bed and Breakfast in nearby hotels and B and Bs are all about £75-80 per couple. This means a large room with private bathroom and double or twin beds. The YHA, for a double bunk room and breakfast was £63 per couple. Shared facilities, narrow bunks and you have to make your own bed. I thought that was actually quite expensive for the facilities compared to a hotel.
Great hostel in a great location
One shared loo on first floor.
i have stayed in dufton youth hostel and have always found it to be excellent.the meals are very good and the warden could not be more helpfull.all in all a great place to be.
We stayed three nights during half-term and they were the best nights sleep we had in our week away! Great beds, fabulous open fire, games and we even made a start on a jigsaw. Perfect base for walking, excellent pub across the road, thoughtful and helpful warden.
