This YHA is in a wonderfully, peaceful location. Fantastic views in every direction. Plenty of walks to do from the door. 5 minute walk into Buttermere where there are a few cafes and hotels. Recommend the short walk to the lake as the views down...More
We arrived at the YHA to be welcomed by Tom and Kara. Check in was easy, we had lots of questions about our walk the following day to Scafell Pike and because of the great advice given we changed our route. We bought a map...More
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
Location, location and location - one of the top things which comes to mind when we think about our trip to Lake District. The hostel is located next to two lakes surrounded by mountains with plenty of walking trails around with no need to drive....More

My sons and I prebooked our evening meal and breakfast so we didn't need a fridge,however there is a communal kitchen for those who wish to self cater. My sons brought their own hair dryer but I don't think the shower room had them any way. There wasn't any wi-fi which unbelievably didn't bother my sons. It was just nice to get back to basics and do a little bonding. Hope this helps!
