I visited here on the 29th-31st of October 2012 as part of my geography degree trip and it was a lovely little place. I was amazed it was so far up the hillside as the coach dropped us off in Elterwater, I wouldn't recommend the youth hostel if you have mobility issues as there is quite a steep bank to walk up unless you have a car. The staff were great and made lovely meals, I honestly couldn't fault it. It was nip and tuck for what you pay and the domitaries have good sturdy beds. However, if you do stay in a big domitary bring an extension plug as there was only 3 sockets in ours. The youth hostel has great views and is lovely and peaceful. Would recommend visiting Ambleside and taking a walk in Elterwater.
