A group of 6 walkers booked a private room and stayed 2 nights.
We have never stayed in a quieter hostel in terms of noise - it was bliss. Even with a family staying next door. We found the hostel very clean with comfy beds and extremely friendly staff. We stayed in an 8 man room on the second floor with good access to ablution facilities. There was only one mains socket in the room, which I can imagine could get quite competitive.
We chose to self cater and found that there wasn't much space in the fridge or at breakfast as the self catering area is a little small for peak seasons, but the kitchen was well equipped.
The hostel is in a great location to walk out of the back door and straight out on the hills. The drying room is well positioned also for when you come back in - and lets face it, it's the Lake District so we were always going to get wet!
Overall, this hostel ticked all of our boxes and we will use it again when we are next in the area.
