Stayed here for a couple of nights to go climbing in the local area over the bank holiday weekend. Staff were very helpful and friendly before and during our stay.

The Hostel is great value and provided a peaceful base used by families and adult groups. The rooms and facilities were basic but acceptable and provided a comfortable night sleep.

Went to this hostel recently with some friends, had a pleasant stay in clean rooms, we were on the top floor so had a long trek to the toilets. Very pleasant staff, good quality evening meal, although very limited amount of veg. Had a pleasant and decent breakfast. Have a bar with a good selection of real ales, stunning location, brilliant staff. Cannot recommend this place enough. Would also be great for families.

Room Tip: Ask to have a room near to the toilets, not the top floor if possible.

We arrived to a very friendly welcome that was much appreciated after a long drive. It's a beautiful house in lovely surroundings. The food was good quality and had good local beers. The rooms & facilities were of a good YHA standard and the fellow hostellers were friendly and the children (other people's) were a joy to have around.

The location is perfect for Peak District walks out of the door. We'd recommend the circular walk calling at Cressbrook Mill, Monsal Head, Little Longstone (the chapel has help yourself tea & biscuits), Wardlow Mires, Litton and Tideswell Dale.

Arrived late afternoon on cold February day. Coal fire in the hall and a very warm and friendly welcome. Bedrooms were clean, good atmosphere in the hostel with lots of families, and plenty to do with lounge, games room etc. We went 'night orienteering' around the grounds as they have a marked-out orienteering course - great fun! The hostel has a wonderful setting overlooking the Wye Valley, and there's so much to do. The Monsal Trail is particularly good for safe and easy family cycling, especially now the tunnels are open. Great place, will return.

Room Tip: Youth Hostels bedrooms are generally the same, although some are en suite. They are basic, confortable, warm and clean - you know what you are getting!
