We felt welcome and comfortable. The staff were friendly and very helpful and we really enjoyed our stay. The hostel is in a lovely location. Breakfast & dinner were prepared and served quickly and were delicious.

Hi Bob L. Sorry that our social space wasn't up to standards and your breakfast was on the wrong side of warm. I hope this won't put you off staying with us or another YHA in the future.

What a fabulous facility. Everything was great. The cleanliness, the warm welcome and how bright everywhere was. This YHA is ideally located in the heart of the National Forest. The Peak District is 45 mins to an hour away. Thank you.

Hey there, Thanks for the review. Great to hear you had a fantastic nights sleep! We do get mixed reviews on our communal area, some love it, others aren't too keen but good to see it didn't ruin your stay. Hope to welcome you back...More

You may be able to but it depends on the sky and the forestry whether anything will be obstructed or not.
