Stayed here in March. A walking group of about 8 were also staying but did nor know you had to book meals in advance (at least a couple of hours notice is usually all that is asked for).There was also a (well behaved) school group, and our group of 11. At 8.30 they all turned up for breakfast expecting a... More

I stayed here in March and loved it so much I have booked to return again in June and August. The hostel has great atmosphere, the manager and staff team are very welcoming and extremely helpful and the food is exceptional. I couldn't agree more with the previous review, breakfast is very good value, as was the evening meal, and... More

The negative criticism is quite unjustified . It is a Youth Hostel! We stay there twice a year . Best bit is manager and her staff. Always really happy and welcoming. Breakfast must be best value for money anywhere

Many thanks for another splendid review of our fabulous hostel. Our breakfast is certainly gaining something of a reputation! A full english including bacon, sausage, egg, beans, hash brown, mushrooms and tomato or a couple of vegetarian sausages if you'd prefer. And then, if you still have room, there's the croissants, cereals, toast and preserves, grapefruit, prunes, fruit bowl, yoghurts,... More

We have as a walking group just booked for our eighth stay in four years. We visit in the Spring and the Autumn for a weekend. Great location, easy access to the fells with good accommodation to return to even if we're cold and wet. Staff are great, food good and with good beer and wine on hand no need... More

It's always a pleasure to have your group stay with us here at High Close, good homecooked food, great beer and excellent company always make it a weekend we look forward to hosting for your walking group. Is it really seven going on eight visits? Clearly it's a mutually rewarding partnership. Looking forward to September already! More

I've just read a previous review which wasn't complimentary at all and I'm amazed as I've just returned from a long weekend at this excellent hostel, yes there was a school group in but they were so well behaved to be honest I hardly noticed them, maybe this previous person forgets what these hostel are about, there were lots of...

Myself and some friends stayed here. Damp in the room on the walls. Heating on full; couldn't turn it down. School group in taking over. Evening meal was very poor. £9.00 for a battered cod- out of the microwave. Very shabby place. Don't go here... Go to the one in elterwater...

I’m really saddened to hear that you didn’t enjoy your stay here at our beautiful hostel. As you can see from our previous reviews people love this building and its stunning location and our emphasis on great customer service and wholesome, plentiful food usually makes up for some shortfalls due to the building’s age. As I explained upon your departure... More

Great location 10 mins drive to Grassmere and 15 mins from Ambleside. In family room which was clean and bunk beds are of high standard-so no squeaking! Staff very friendly and helpful-thanks Miranda. Breakfast was very tasty. Thoroughly recommend.

Location! Location! Location! With our spectacular views of Loughrigg Fell, all the way down to Lake Windermere and in the other direction the Langdale Pikes we're pretty hard to beat it has to be said. That's probably one of the reasons our staff are always so chipper and fun-loving as well as our desire to make your stay enjoyable and... More

Stayed here a year ago in a private room,sadly this time we had to share a dorm. the price was good but snoring guests & crowded showers had to be endured. Breakfast was top notch with a superior choice of items.

Our boutiful breakfast buffet always manages to put a smile on the faces of even those guests who have suffered the perils of dormitory accommodation! Ear-plugs are available at reception for those who don't wish to be disturbed by their fellow hostellers suffering with obstructive sleep apnea... More

I spent 3 nights @ Langdale YHA (High Close) which suited me perfectly for 4 days fell-walking in Langdale & adjacent areas including one walk directly from/to hostel. Dorm price was just £10 for members although I assume this cost will increase soon. Due to it's elevated location probably best to arrive by car although approach roads are narrow. Hostel... More

Grand and lofty indeed! We're really pleased you enjoyed your stay in our sprawling Victorian mansion perched on our hillside between Grasmere and Elterwater. So many people pop in for a night as part of a walking holiday and then return later that year with family and friends and I sincerely hope you'll be doing the same. We look forward... More

Just had a couple nights here and it was excellent. The staff were warm, friendly and welcoming, they all had the time to have a chat and showed a real interest in what we were doing. The room was very clean and nice and warm (we turned the heating down) but better than being cold. The beds were comfortable and... More
