We stayed as a family for 3 nights but were disappointed with a few things. Firstly the dinners were poor both in quantity and quality so we opted out of having meals there for the rest of our stay. Breakfast was good though. Disappointed that there was no free wifi so we just did without until we got to the pub up the road (The White Lion). Also disappointed that there wasn't a games room and not sure what games there were other than Scrabble that we got from the reception. They had table football but it was not free so that was unused also. The toilets despite being done up recently had a door without a lock - I would have thought that it wouldn't take much to fix it. The shower had a seat that was on a spring but would only stay down if you had weighty enough things to keep it there (very strange design) but no hook to hang anything on (is that too much to ask?). John the house keeping manager was pleasant and friendly but the other 2 workers just did what they did and as far as I could see never really interacted with any one. The drying room was great. The hostel was a little cold and so I often walked around with a fleece on. The lighting in the rooms were dim to say the least. Not sure we would stay there again. Keswick and Borrowdale are 2 we have been to close by and they have nicer facilities.
