Kirkby Stephen Hostel

10 of us rode the W2W coast to coast ride on our bikes, after 80 miles of cycling we turned up to the hostel where we had an amazing meat pie dinner waiting for us after we had prearranged it on the phone. There are hot powerful showers and a comfy bed. We could help ourselves to breakfast and tea in the kitchen the next morning. The land lady was very nice. If you require a quick one night stop on your adventure then this place is ideal.

After trekking the shap to kirkby stephen leg,battered by sleet and horizontal winds,a hot shower and bed were the priorities.
Denises hostel fitted the bill perfectly.a real gem of a place ,run by a delightful lady.charming old church,converted to a hostel.far better than some hotels i have slept in.
Go there and experience the warmth and love.

Stayed here after a long slog through the Yorkshire dales. The place was perfect for groups and single travelers alike. We all had plenty of space to stretch our legs and enjoy a brew and a chat with the lovely host. A bleary night of local ale, some cheap wine from the shop opposite finished with a very nice send off breakfast and we were on our way.
Thank you Denise for making our stop one of our highlights.

We stayed here walking the C2C the wrong way. The lovely owner is called Denise, who gave us a warm welcome and cooked us a nice meal which went down even better after the long walk.
The accommodation is basic but clean and has everything you need for a couple of days stay.
Would recommend this for anyone on a budget.

I turned up to a note on the door with the code to access the building, once inside my bag was right there - it could have easily been stolen. There was no heating on and the drying room was freezing! The owner was at a social event and not there until morning.

To get warm I placed 4 blankets over myself and still shivered.

The only good thing was that the next day the owner turned up, as did the heating...

Just what we needed after our wet and cold journey. The place was lovely and warm and very welcoming. Would definately be staying again. The managaer couldnt be more helpful if you needed anything which is good compared to some places i have stayed.
