Booked this for 4 nights over new year with 25+ friends had a great time, staff where there in the background if required to help and assist, but left us to get on with it. Clean and tidy rooms great to chill out and let the children run wild without any concerns. (And sum adults!)

I recommend this YHA location. Myself and my friend wanted somewhere to stay in Coniston to attempt Fells ant "The Old Man" All the staff were so welcoming, friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. The lounge, dining room, were comfortable, showers and toilets spotlessly clean. No mean feet with guests coming in from a long day...
