This place includes all the best aspects of hostelling - a quirky clifftop building (a former school) in a wonderful location, fantastic value, and knowledgeable staff who really care about the place and their guests (it's family owned). It's brilliant for exploring the Lake District, with lovely walks on the doorstep too. Decor kind of old school (excuse pun) but... More

Very pretty from the outside. Plenty of parking available. Very handy distance from the centre of Arnside- 5 minute walk down the coastal path by the side of the YHA. Inside was fine. Bedroom pretty basic. We had bunk beds- quite small. It did the job and was cheap so perfect for us!

Very friendly staff who went the extra mile to prepare supper for us last thing at night because everywhere else had stopped serving food. There is plenty of entertainment by way of a fully-equipped Sky package, a pool table and others. The breakfast was great (£5 extra in advance) and the staff were very helpful in recommending places to visit.... More

Just home from a one night family cycle tour with a sleepover at arnside. The hostel is excellent value for money abduction the owners are trying their best to run budget accommodation for families. Breakfast was super value and the outside area is fab.We sat by a candle lit fire till 11 drinking affordable wine from the bar. A great... More

We booked a private room for the three of us, having been bothered by snoring in dorms during previous hostel stays, but the noisy family in the adjoining room kept us awake until after midnight on our last night though we were undisturbed the two previous nights. Staff were friendly and helpful but the knives in the kitchen were blunt... More

We arrived at this hostel having booked well in advance only to discover the hostel was closed and in the middle of renovations. Somehow there had been a mix up with the booking. We were quite prepared to find somewhere else to stay, but the lovely family that own and run this hostel went out of their way to accomodate... More

We used the YHA for a residential training event over two nights and days. The staff at the hostel could not have been more helpful, friendly or accommodating - thank you all so much. The breakfasts were better quality and turnaround than most UK hotels and certainly served with bigger smiles! The rooms and facilities were, of course, Youth Hostel... More

Weirdly this hostel has possibly the most comfortable beds that I've ever slept in, and a really good sitting room for relaxing over a copy of Asian Babes in the evening. As a downside, the shower/toilet facilities were substandard and the kitchen very crowded - couldn't find anywhere to sit for my breakfast or dinner.

Great to see this hostel making a good start now it's being run by a family. Very friendly welcome, lots of evidence of redecorating around without spoiling visit. Very comfy lounge and separate dining room. Our bunk room was comfy, and shared showers worked well. Guests kitchen made good use of space, and even on a busy bank holiday there... More

No complaints here. We stayed in "Hobbits" room, a private room with double bed which had character and a heater that kept it nice and warm on a chilly night. My partner has severe asthma but had no problems in our room or the communal areas we used (lounge and kitchen) - we didnt find any issues with damp or... More
