“Perfect family getaway”
Reviewed 29 September 2011

We booked the whole place for a break for an extended family, 19 people in ages 2-73.
A great place to stay, comfortable beds, warm (possible too warm but OK once the rads were turned down), large kitchen, large dining room. The lounge wasnt quite big enough for 19, but we squeezed in.
The on-site warden (Steve) was very helpful before and during our visit.
Close to Burghley House and Rutland Water.
Could fault the place for a reasonably priced venue.

Great Edwardian house turned hostel with clean dorm rooms, good kitchen and friendly volunteer staff. Easy cycle parking... and easy cycle into Stamford or bourne.

Reviewed 8 October 2010

Thurlby is a volunteer-run hostel (YHA organised) so maybe I was just lucky. But as everything was very nice and clean I suppose that this wasn't just an exception.

I spent one very quiet night in July there and the hostel was very calm at that time. There was only one adult group apart from my.

The hostel is suitable for both families and single travellers / adults. There's a very big garden behind it and hardly any traffic around.
The location is good for some walking, cycling or even trips but as Thurlby itself doesn't offer too much (or I just didn't find the right spots in the short time) it's useful - well, actually necessary - to have a car.

All in all I enjoyed my stay.

We (3 females) stayed in Thurlby Youth Hostel during May 2007. We had stayed in Youth Hostels throughout England, Scotland and Ireland.
Thurlby Youth Hostel was homely, very clean, large community kitchen, large dining area & comfortable beds in our first floor room.
The lady running the Hostel was amazing - she let me check my emails on her computer, shared the dinner she had just made with some of the guests and chatted away paying interest in where we had been and where we were from.
I would definately stay here again and recommend it to singles, couples, families and groups!

  • Liked — Warm friendly atmosphere
  • Disliked — I didnt find anything bad about this Hostel.
