“Amazing”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

After being told we were stopping in a hostel I was apprehensive.
How wrong I was.
Amazing! Clean. Spacious rooms. Great shower. Bike storage and drying room. Good price.
We stopped here en route from Glasgow to derby but will use it again when we do the coast to coast.

The staff at Wayfarers were very accommodating for my late arrival and email contact was prompt beforehand. The facilities are excellent and overall the hostel is very clean and comfortable. It's also convenient for the railway station, town centre, and supermarkets.

Echo all previous good comments. Did the C2C with 3 friends last weekend, the bike facilities, room, showers, food and staff were far above what we expected for a hostel. Would definitely recommend. Excellent value.

10 of us recently stayed here, when doing the C2C cycle ride. Very friendly staff, excellent facilities, bikes safe and great drying room. Would recommend this to anyone doing the C2C. Hope to come back next time we do the ride again.

After a couple of nights there it's easy to see why this hostel has so many 5 star reviews.

Very clean and tidy, friendly staff, comfy beds already made for us (a very nice change from the YHA), great kitchen facilities. You really couldn't ask for more.


(And for anyone wanting a cooked breakfast, the cafe at Booths supermarket up the road opens at 7am I think, though we went at 8).

Our group of 13 arrived for an overnight stay on our C2C journey and found a lovely, well-equipped hostel. The bike storage is convenient - and has tools too. The rooms are ensuite - and the showers were very good! The team running the Wayfarers Hostel were very helpful with directions as well as recommendations of restaurants for our large party. Highly recommended!
