Thank you so much to Denise who looked after us all after we'd cycled from Kendal to Barnard Castle on the W2W cycle route. She'd also found us a fantastic mini bus company who collected us in BC and took us back the following morning to restart our journey. A choice of beef pie or pork casserole followed by toffee...

3 weary walkers arrived in Kirkby Stephen last Sunday evening and were warmly welcomed by the owner Denise. Having spent a number of nights under canvas this was much appreciated. The accomodation is clean and spacious. It was a pleasant and interesting experience taking shelter in a converted church building. On Monday morning, Denise laid on a fine breakfast for... More

Arrived in Kirkby Stephen mid afternoon mid week, was going to camp at a site up the road-but no one around. Knew of this hostel, so phoned Denise who called me back later and confirmed that there was room and that the hostel was open at that time of the afternoon about three o’clock The hostel was clean comfortable as...

Group of 5, who used a 6 bed dorm at the hostel following a cycling day in the dales. The accommodation was very much as described. Certainly clean, comfortable and fairly spacious, particularly with regard to ceiling height (as you expect in an old church building). Kitchen was well equipped. Our host was very friendly and helpful. Other people at... More

My wife and I have just had our 3rd visit to this Hostel and each time we have been very happy with both the facilities and price. Denise the owner has always been very helpful and on our last visit she allowed us to use the Hostel's facilities all day on our day of departure, as our train home was... More

We stayed at the Kirkby Stephen hostel during the Coast to Coast walk. We had previously stayed in YHA hostels but this hostel cannot compare. It was dismal and tatty. The beds were £20 a night for a bunk in a crowded dorm and then with an extra £6 each for breakfast (which was good) plus £2 each for thin... More

Stayed over on Saturday night as I was walking in the area the next day. The place was fine. Clean toilets and showers. Fantastic breakfast and a great hostess in Denise. The wifi worked fine and to top it all not a bad night out at the local pubs and a great curry house too. Will definitely stay again and... More

If you’re looking for straightforward, YHA-type accommodation, offered at a very reasonable price, then this hostel will suit you. The building is accessible throughout the day, so I was able to return from my energetic five-hour, morning walks/runs and have access to the shower, before embarking on my afternoon tour of coffee shops or other attractions in the area. My... More

I had the misfortune of staying here in June. On arrival I felt the place had a damp smell. I suffer from asthma and did not sleep at all as the damp raised my asthma. I have stayed at a number of hostels and this was by far the worst. I feel the whole place is in dire need of... More
