    Excellent location surrounded by mountains but hostel needs updating as charging hotel prices for private rooms but in need of renovation. Parking also minimal. Just a few minutes walk to buttermere village and lake with pubs nearby

    Cheap, cheerful and clean. Lovely staff. Could do with a couple of extra plug sockets in rooms of 6. Showers were hot and clean. Very comfy bed. Great location . Walking distance to several local pubs too.
