A menu was also given to us to choose from for our evening meal before we arrived to choose from. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and plenty of had plenty of space. The rooms did have bunk beds which... More

It's what you need from a hostel. I was there when it was very quiet (only 5 guests at the hostel that night) so I had a lovely peaceful time. I may not enjoyed my time as much had the hostel been much busier but my experience early this month was very positive. The hostel building isn't amazing but my... More

We stayed at Holly How hostel last week with 58 ten year olds as part of a school residential trip. We were greeted with a really warm welcome by Glenn, the hostel manager, who filled us in on all aspects of Holly How's operation - facilities, meals and other services. All members of staff were so kind and great with... More

Prices were hiked for the Bank Holiday weekend to £25 per night ( inclusive of VAT). I wouldn't have minded paying the price if I had got value accommodation for that - 8 bedded dorm is definitely not it, without breakfast ! Breakfast can be bought for £6- vegetarian option available. It's ok. Dinners are offered at a price ,... More

Just had a great weekend in this YHA property. The web site gives all the practical details about the place but you also need to know that Glen and the team are very welcoming, helpful and make the stay a pleasure. Also if you are looking for to eat and drink out then I highly recommend the Black Bull Hotel... More

Visited with our 2 year old and had a great time. Super friendly staff, who couldn't do enough to be helpful. Facilities completely adequate and the hostel is clean and tidy. We were made to feel very welcome from the off and felt the atmosphere was very family friendly. We will definitely visit again

Just back from a 2 day stay with a family of four (2 girls under 6). Fantastic value for money and great place to explore The Lakes. We used this as a base to get the girls into walking as well as boat trip on nearby Windermere. We used the self catering facilities for breakfast but dined in at night... More

Great hostel, warm and comfortable and the warden was very friendly. Kitchen and drying room were fine and the dorms OK. I was wondering why people who can afford one or two year old BMW or Audi's stay at Hostels and smuggle wine in so they don't pay the hostel charge - which is below pub price. A good walk... More
