Our Daughter and new son-in-law hired the entire Hostel from the Friday till Sunday as their wedding reception venue. What an inspired choice!!! All the staff were brilliant and could not do enough to help out. The food was both plentiful and tasty, everyone said how nice it was (over 100 guests). The bar was well stocked and managed to...

My now Wife and I, were privileged to be able to host our wedding reception at YHA Langdale last weekend. The Hostel is a beautiful building in a stunning location, and provided the perfect base for us to build our day around. Miranda (Hostel Manager) and Keith (Deputy Manager) were fantastic hosts, seeing to all our requirements in a cool,... More

The views are fantastic but the youth hostel is slightly grubby. Food was average. The showers would have a hair on the floors. Only two out of the three showers worked. The beds were extremely uncomfortable and there was only one plug socket.

After a 13 mile walk in 27 degree heat, this hostel was an extremely welcome crash for a night! The views are beautiful and the building is really interesting. Our room was absolutely huge and I got a solid 9 hour kip in! The showers/toilets aren't fantastic but if you can cope with a not-so-private poo, this is well worth... More

I went away with the school a few weeks ago, and we booked out the entire place. The bar was open each night half 7 to half 8 where we could buy sweets and drinks. The teachers could also buy alcohol which they were pleased about, I'm sure! The dorms were spotless and beds were good enough. Mattresses hard for... More

When I booked this hostel I thought that its location was a bit hard to reach for a person who is dependent on public transport. I worried that I might have to walk for too long to get to the hostel, but I was wrong as the hostel was within short walking distance up the hill from the nearest bus... More

What fantastic photos of Elterwater village and the Langdale Pikes! We're so very lucky to be perched on top of our hillside between Grasmere and Elterwater, even when the weather chooses to be unkind to us we still have the luxury of stunning views all the way down to Windermere lake and Bowness. Thanks you so much for your positive... More

We had a lovely short holiday in the lakes and stayed in a family ensuite room at this hostel. Great value for money, food good and staff friendly. Great building in a fabulous location with stunning views. We were lucky with the weather, kids liked paddling in the lakes and we enjoyed a trip on a steam powered gondola on... More

We stayed here for one night while walking the Cumbria Way. While the hostel was a little off route (and quite a way up a steep hill!) it had stunning views and was an impressive building. We arrived about 2pm and were able to check in although had to wait another hour or so to get the keys. We stayed... More

I've spent the last nine years crawling into every corner, swinging from every chandelier and balancing on every rickety old chair pianting this old gem and it's always begging for more! With the help of an array of willing volunteers, truckloads of paint and loads of advice from the blokes down the pub it's beginning to finally come together. As... More
