This was my first experience of staying in a YHA hostel and I was very impressed with the high standard. The rooms and shower facilities were very clean. The room we stayed in had just one bunk bed in it and there was lots of space. The hostel is made from wood which gave the inside a lovely woody smell! The breakfast was generous and I noticed a fantastic kitchen for those people who wanted self-catering. Neadless to say the locartion is perfect for walking. We were allowed to leave our car in the car park the day before we stayed there and walked from there to borrowdale YHA, stayed the night then walked back a different way to stay at Elterwater. There's a pub within half a mile.
