Great value stay- no complaints. You check yourself in, nice and quiet. Even though you never see anyone the place was still nice and clean! Location is perfect- close to everything. Would recommend for a very cheap but perfectly good place to stay!

Self catered so we knew we had to check in ourselves. However we stayed 4 nights and only saw the cleaning ladies. Paul who I'm sure is a nice guy and happens to manage the hostel was not seen once. So when hiccups occurred (which they of course did) with room numbers etc, panic broke out because there was no... More

Hostel was fairly clean and quiet. Very small room but we made do by storing things under the bed. However we were staying as a couple and our room was obviously a three person room so this would be incredibly cramped! Wifi access across the hostel. Awful showers, could barely get any water out of it and it varied between... More

I thouroughly enjoyed staying here. The room was small but very cheap. there is also a living room and kitchen so you can sit there if you want to relax. plus there's plenty of countryside to explore. The location is good too. It's about halfway inbetween the train station and the town centre. you can walk from the hostel to... More

Breakfast was poor! Rooms are too cramped up. Toilet showers don't work properly (its either to cold or too hot) and WIFI password doesn't work. Both these problems have been written in the comments book but none have been fixed for the past 6 months. VERY VERY Poorly maintained. I do not recommend this place...would go for the slightly more... More

Love how this hostel is managed based on integrity. Excellent concept. Walking distance from the rail station. Room and toilets are reasonably clean and well maintained. Though the kitchen could do with some help. Breakfast was included but do not expect much. Overall excellent location and a nice place to stay in Lake District.

The hostel is very small but clean.The reception is not manned, but the written guidelines displayed on the lounge walls are easy to follow. I also received useful guidelines by email. I was surprised to find out that the price I paid for the bunk bed included breakfast and teas/coffees all day. Most of the hostels charge people extra for... More

The hostel is very close to the train / bus station, which helps. There is no staff at the hostel, except of the cleaner, who comes for a few hours. Cheap hostel, but the rooms are very small and overcrowded. There are ONLY 2 toilets/bathrooms for the whole hostel. In busy time it take up to 2h to take a... More

Basic but perfectly adequate base for a few days walking in the lakes. Room did smell a bit musty when we arrived but ok once we'd let some air in. Great location and beats the other options on price by a mile! Comfortable beds, warm rooms and adequate facilities. No parking but took advantage of the 3 day car parking... More
