Great staff and atmosphere. Good value and interesting travellers. It is worthy just for a walk along Carlisle's Wall and Town Centre. Shoppers will be crazy.


Really nice place. Friendly and helpful staff, and the place is very eco-friendly. There are lockers in the rooms, and the kitchen is well equipped, wifi is also good.


Friendly and welcoming. Right in the middke of town. Grat value. I loved the place. Will stay again.

Small hostel with limited facilities but very clean. Reception was nice and it felt very friendly. Very well located for Carlisle Castle and city centre. Overall recommend, but beware there are lots of stairs if you are in one of the rooms on the top floor!


Beautiful little hostel, more like a B&B, right across the street from the main museum and the cathedral. There weren't many people there when I stayed and Carlisle is a pretty quiet town so I can't say much about atmosphere, but if you're looking for a place to stay before or after seeing Hadrian's wall this is definitely a good bet.


The hostel is a great location, almost right on top of the the cathedral. It is a bright, very clean hostel with very friendly staff.


Not very welcoming.


hostel lovely in character, conveniently located in the centre; friendly staff that was always about to help; we could store our luggage without problems after checkout. definitely recommended.
