I stayed here with a friend whilst backpacking around the uk. It is a great place to stop off and enjoy the lakes district. It is a short walk to Grasmere, and there are many hikes which can be done very close to the hostel. The kitchen is great, and there is free wifi too. They need more showers, but I was assured by the owners that they are waiting on planning approval before any changes can be made to the old buildings.
