Great for groups, families and outdoors people. Staff really friendly. Rooms clean and breakfast (cereals, bread, coffee etc) is included. Highly recommended. Centrally located, only a few minutes walk from the town centre

The hostel is well organised with good self catering facilities. Big kitchen with large fridges and systems in place to organise people's food. Big oven, hot water on tap as well as tea and coffee. Staff very helpful.

My friend hired the entire backpackers for a birthday party with sleepover. The owner, Cherry, is lovely. The backpackers itself is lovely with a well equipped kitchen, lovely sitting room and good rooms. The backpackers is also in a great location. A truly enjoyable stay.

The 8 bed dorm was v spacious, v clean and so comfortable. Complementary breakfast was a welcome and healthy surprise, cereals coffee tea and toast. The showers were roasting hot and just what is needed after a days hiking. Super kitchen facilities, again very clean and organised. David and Cherry are friendly and extremely helpful hosts. It really is hard to beat the owner managed hostel. Very well located- very close to town centre, yet far enough away to have total peace and quiet, and the parking spaces close to the hostel are free- which is rare in Ambleside. A truly great place- how a hostel should be.
