My partner and I stayed at the Grasmere YHA in October for 2 nights. The staff behind the reception could not help us enough giving us excellent advice on walks to go on and restaurants to visit. They even gave us free maps to borrow. The room was small and basic but clean and the toilets and showers were kept clean. We made use of the self-catering kitchen which was well stocked with utensils and pots/pans etc with plenty of cookers for lots of people to use at once. It did get a bit small and crowded but no problem. Our only wish would be for some new toasters!
Grasmere itself was a lovely place to stay in the centre of the Lake District and the hostel is well situated close to the centre of the little village.
It was very good value for money compared to the B&Bs/hotels close by and the added benefit of being able to prepare our own food made this a good choice!
