The hostel is in a quiet secluded location with great views up towards the Old Man of Coniston. The hosts Andy and Sarah were friendly, and good cooks too. There was a nice atmosphere chatting to other guests at dinner. The showers were clean, hot and had good pressure (essential when you're caked in mud). The mattresses were comfortable. I... More

Spent 1 night at the Coppermines. After negotiating the tricky track we received a very warm welcome from Sarah and Andy. Enjoyed a lovely home cooked meal at a cracking price before retiring to the lounge complete with log burning fire. Wonderful stay and couldn't recommend more highly. What an inspiring location as well.

Stayed for one night, just me and one other guest. Sarah is probably the friendliest member of staff in the lakes! Great company, great food, great location for hiking. Great bumpy track to get the car up.

Coniston Coppermines hostel was a great place to spend a weekend with the family. The rooms are clean and bedding provided. Breakfasts were great and bar facilities open until 10 with an honesty café serving cake and tea/coffee all day. I can't recommend this place enough providing your car can get up the access track - otherwise its a long... More

This was my fourth visit to the Lakes in consecutive years and the third time staying at YHA Coppermines and every time, we get a warm welcome. The staff put in so much effort to make sure their guests are happy and enjoying their stay. Being a small hostel up a mountain, there is certainly a communal sense around the... More

This was the third time we'd been to this hostel - we went when Ben & Katy were in charge in 2013, Mark & Cat in 2014 and Andy & Sarah this year. All of them were really nice and really helpful! The scenery surrounding the hostel is stunning, but be prepared for a bumpy ride if driving up to... More

Dear Ross, Thank you for your review and so glad your third time at Coppermines was as good as the rest and that you enjoyed the food. Unfortunatly there isn't anything we are able to do about the road as the mountain weather and large vehicles don't help. But glad the rest of your stay was enjoyable. We look forward... More

This is a lovely hostel, up the hill outside Coniston. All the facilities a walker could want. Great hospitality, very fiendly helpfull staff who made a fab supper. Although it meant an extra mile on the walk from Ulverston, it was well worth the effort.

I stayed in this hostel in December for one night. Having walked 18 miles from Ulverston to Coniston I did not like walking an extra mile and a half from the warm pub to the hostel (my original booking had been for the hostel in Holly How in Coniston) It was however worth it, a lovely place with great facilities...
