Friendly and accommodating staff. Great cooking and interesting building. Parking for about 8 cars off street. The building is an old girls boarding school. Our family room was the head mistresses study. Plenty of space for 5 or 6. Cosy lounge and dining room.

Such a shame, we kept saying during our stay. The owners are really delightful people and in time I feel they will get this place right but I have to comment on the here and now unfortunately, If you are prepared not to have a shower or a decent wash then this place is for you. The showers are disgusting,... More

Lovely old building in a fantastic location overlooking Morecambe Bay. Recently taken over from YHA who have let the place go a bit, so the very nice new owners have a job on their hands to get it back on track. I hope they manage it as it's a great place to stay for the price and brings people into... More

The management of this YHA was recently taken over in a private enterprise agreement, and has been closed for refurbishment for several months, reopening in May. I've enjoyed staying there previously, and appreciate the style and facilities you get with a youth hostel. Think basic but serviceable. I was curious to see what changes had been made - hoping some... More

We really enjoyed staying here, it was virtually empty so we had the building to ourselves. Full of character, staff very friendly and helpful. Building needs some TLC but hopefully this will come with the new owners. Looking forward to seeing what it looks like in the future

We spent two nights here in a double room. I will have to make a couple of negative comments - but read on! The building is in need of renovation. The room we had was clean and the beds comfortable but the decoration and the shower were shabby. Many of the rooms and corridors are in need of a little... More

Just stayed here as part of an A Level Educational group and thanks to the lovely and welcoming hospitality from new owners Martin and Leah we had a great 2 nights stay. Thanks to Leah's cooking we were treated to a full English breakfast both mornings and also had the option for yogurt, melon, toast or cereal if a full... More

We stayed in Arnside on the last weekend before a change of managers and owners. The hostel is an amazing building overlooking the Kent estuary. To be honest a lick of paint won't go a miss, but it was lovely and warm, spotlessly clean and we were made very welcome. We stayed in double room in the eaves, called the... More

This is a superb hostel situated on the estuary at Arnside. The Yha staff are simply the best and always go the extra mile with their good humour, service and hospitality. The food is exceptionally good too. The New Years Eve knees up was a blast and a brilliant way to ring in 2014 ..... A special thanks to Ken... More

The level of service and hospitality at this hostel was amazing thanks to the dedication of Ken and Dave. The food was tasty and plentiful and the celebrations were very well organised. Many thanks to them for a great New Year's Eve.
