If you have an image of a youth hostel in your mind then this is the one for you. Although the reception and dining area look like they have been modernised the rest of the hostel has a way to go. The self catering kitchen was very small, there was a lack of kitchen equipment and overall it was not very clean. Fridge was dirty inside and windows covered in dead flies. Not the hostels fault but the other people using the kitchen obviously missed the point of self catering kitchen and expected somebody else to clear there pots away. Beds were comfy and clean, plenty of hot water for the showers however, there are no plug sockets in any of the bedrooms due to age of the building. So make sure you have everything charged before you stay.
On the plus side excellent locations for walking the Helvellyn range. Having walked this area now wouldn't stay at this hostel again.
