We stayed here as part of our field trip to the lake district. It is in an ideal location for hiking or any other outdoor activity.
The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The food is also very good, served in a nicely decorated dining area. The common room boasted lots of space, seating and literature about the local area.
The rooms, in comparison to other hostels are very good, clean and spatious. Each room was provided with a heater so although it was rather cold weather during our visit, it was nice and cosy in our room. The beds are also very comfy and as the area is very quiet, I had a very good nights sleep!
The only thing that I could put the hostel down on is their showers which seem to either be stone cold or scolding hot.
Overall we had a great stay and I would definitely consider staying here again!
