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

Well where to start. Had to sit outside in the rain until they let us in with the kids at 5.30. (Which was advertised but you can usually sit in lounges etc!)Then our room smelt of mold and mildew .there were air fresheners in areas which stank. The room was 7oc at night and the kids were freezing. Down stairs... More

I stayed in this hostel for one night. I went to bed with no bites on my legs and woke up to find I had been bitten all over my legs. I hadn't been bitten previously at home, and we weren't out walking on the day that we stayed in the hostel. This has put me off ever staying here... More

A lovely hostel set in lovely countryside. The family now running this independent hostel are friendly and very helpful. We were there for New Year and they did their best to ensure everybody enjoyed the festivities. They even laid on fireworks for midnight and I felt very sorry for them that the weather didn't cooperate, pouring down with rain at... More

Stayed 3 nights 1- 4 January 2015 in 'Hobbit's' room- a private retreat suite in the eaves with a double bed. The lounge with wood burning fire gives a feeling of staying in a private home. Nothing too much trouble for the new owners who deserve every success.

I booked this venue for my friend's birthday treat as we have both had enjoyable stays there in the past. This was our first visit since Martin and Leah have taken over the independent hostel. Their customer care is excellent and they are working hard to make improvements to the building. The lounge is a perfect place to curl up... More

I decided on the Tuesday that my partner and I should go away for one night, therefore i booked the Arnside Independent Hostel (YHA) for Thursday night. We arrived at the hostel just as check in was beginning, where we were greeted by a very friendly man in reception. His welcome and fully explained the layout of the building, making... More

This place is in a great setting, just a 5 minute stroll from the bay. There a lovely views to be had from various windows in the rambling house. It is evidently being lovingly cared for by the current owners and the lounge is one of the places with a beautiful outlook, an inviting fireplace and comfortable arrangement of furniture.... More

Arnside is a brilliant location on the Kent Estuary just south of the Lake District easily accessible from Manchester by train or road. There are lots of walks and cycle rides that can be started from the hostel. Fantastic views across the estuary and up to the lakeland fells. Walk down to village via prom very nice. They also organise... More

A beautiful building in a beautiful location, run by an enthusiastic, warm and welcoming family and staff. I happened upon this Hostel (via YHA.org.uk), in search of a quiet, long weekend out of the City, rave reviews there, then encouraged further by a direct train from Manchester to Arnside in an hour and half. [Arnside stop only 10 - 15... More
