Beautiful location. Only used as overnight stop on journey but would return as perfect for walks from the door and to the lovely pubs in Langdale. Great food in the evening and super breakfast to start the day.

Stopped here on the first night of a three day circular walk taking in two other YHA hostels over 35 miles. A larger hostel out of town. Warm and comfortable. Lots of lounge areas, hot showers and very friendly staff. Food very good - lots of it and thank you for the apple crumble with soya cream. The first mile... More

Can't pick fault with the youth hostel. We had breakfast and packed lunch which were both lovely and plenty of choice. Decor and furnishings a little tired but comfortable. About 1.3 miles from nearest pub but bear in mind it's 1.3 miles uphill on the way back! Great location for walking - great weekend!

I stayed here about 35 years ago with friends for Christmas and was delighted when we came across it still open. How could we resist coffee☕️ (a whole cafetiere) and a big piece of homemade cake for £3. Highly recommend the cake! 🍰The hostel hasn't changed one bit and the Catering Manager was very helpful and friendly too. Apparently the... More

We stayed here with 2 kids. Plenty of space for them to explore and run around outdoors, and great to have a games room. Plenty of space indoors too in two comfortable lounges.

I went there with a friend for a hiking weekend in the lake district. This hostel was cheap and away from other towns full of tourists, as Windermere. If you dont mind walking a lot in the mountain to get there and other hiking routes, which is what we wanted, it is perfect! It also has all the facilities you... More
