During our Coast to Coast walk we stopped here midway. We were very tired and thankfully it was right opposite the Co-op. We had an ensuite room which was just what we needed with a very hot shower. Breakfast was fantastic too. A really great budget addition to the accomodation choice at Kirkby Stephen.

My brother and I had a good stay at the hostel. I is a beautiful building and we had a peaceful stay. The twin room was basic, but sufficient for our needs. We have stayed before and would stay again in the future.

Travelling with 8 girlfriends on a cycling trip we stopped here a night. Wonderful home cooking both for supper and breakfast. We had a room for 8 - bunk beds and a connecting bathroom. Good value and friendly and a lock up cycle store. It is in an old chapel and you sit in the pews to eat. You can... More

About two months ago I was one of the thousands that embarks on the Coast to Coast walk, and eventually it all blurs together as memories of sheep, aching legs, beer, awkward hail storms, and beds to sleep in. This place is one that stands out in my memory and will not blur or be forgotten! I rocked up a... More

I've stayed at this hostel several times, and always found it welcoming, clean and well-equipped. In an excellent location on the Coast-to-Coast walk and with good cycling routes around, and also adjacent to shops convenient for self-caterers. The proprietor Denise is really friendly and goes out of her way to make your stay pleasant.

I was in a cycling group of fourteen, which combined with another large group would you think make it difficult for the proprietor to manage but she managed admirally. The evening meal and breakfast were tasty and filling (with both groups wanting a 8am breakfast).The accommodation is fine, being a former youth hostel. There was plenty of space for the... More

A great value stop while recently doing the coast to coast walk. Me and my friends were more than happy,and found this hostel to be clean and Denise (the proprietor) to be helpful and friendly. Would recommend it to anybody walking the coast to coast

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
