We went to peak district during Easter as a couple. Booked in Edale hostel for one night as this is the only one available in this area. We did read the reviews before the trip so were a bit worried and didn't expect too much. But luckily it turned out to be a very pleasant stay! The staff were very welcoming and helpful, especially the young gentleman Jamie at the front desk who helped us a lot and made some excellent suggestions. Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in one of the family rooms which is warm, comfy, quiet and very clean. The view outside the hostel is just spectacular and the location perfect for walking. Dinner was basic but well cooked and tasty. Breakfast had a good range of choices. We are quite pleased with the portion as were about to do lots of walking through the snow. Certainly good value for the price. The hostel also has a game room and a spacious lounge with comfy sofas. The only thing that bothers me a bit is that somehow both hot and cold tap gives hot water. Will definitely come back when visiting this area again.
