    Definitely recommend this hostel to budget travellers or hiking lovers.The hostel is on a mountain, which means you have to walk uphill for 30-40 minutes from the bus stop. If you do not travel light, you may suffer. Imagine dragging your suitcase on the cobbled path. But when you arrive, you can start fell walks from the doorsteps. It would be fine if you have a car. The receptionist was helpful and friendly, giving me good advice to explore the area and letting me into the room before earliest check-in since it was cleaned.

    I went back to the hostel late and there was no light along the path. Mountains looked terrifying...This is not their fault, but you should take it into account if you plan a late return.

    Breakfast was great but not free.

    No wifi, no power points in rooms, quite a late check-in with no luggage storage for while you wait and it was quite far from the town, though the location may appeal to those who are only there to hike.

    What a location - great - I even managed to hike to top of Helvellyn and was back for 10:00am - Food - great value for money - massesof good food for both dinner and breakfast. Beer - selection excellent. The best is the Staff - great advice, friendly, and went the extra mile

    The drive up - a little rough for my car.

    Good value, great location, and plenty of food onsite. Great breakfast for £5.

    No plug sockets in the bedrooms, or in the ladies bathroom on the ground floor, so no charging electrical things, nor drying your hair. Very thin walls and noisy neighbours somewhat spoiled our nights sleep.

    The lack of power-points. There are no power-points in the rooms. You can only charge electrical items in public areas if you queue to use the sockets.

    Good value. Easy access to a days walking.

    No sockets in rooms. Dining room dirty. Breakfast slow and over cooked. Too hot - central heating on unnecessarily.

    Location, value for money and the usual high standard YHA facilities.

    Real ale selection was poor and over-priced. No free tea/coffee facilities.

    Location, Staff, Offer that was on the room for 2. It felt like a hostel from years ago when things were simple

    Felt price of evening meals was a little high. Cabbage was not totally cooked (but we like it that way). Breakfast was a little cool. Shower with only a small area to keep your clothes dry. Nowhere to put belongings except on a hook. However the staff were lovely and we liked it there so would go again. Just update paint and cheer it up.

    Location pretty and atmosphere with other guests generally good.

    Too noisy at nights e.g after 10pm and very early especially from ground floor perspective. No electric points in rooms very basic doesn't take much really. Alcohol beverages prices way too expensive rather go to village even though not convenient. Recycling in kitchen always seem to be full not emptied and over flowing. Piles of dishes left in drainer by other users very annoying and inconsiderate where comments shared with other users. Kitchen food storage inadequate considering the use and traffic the hostel can get. Generally lacking a little TLC and refirbishment otherwise has potential to be a great hostel rather than fair to good. Missing the wow factor
