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

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
