Nice histrical place Carlisle always for me a friendly visit.


I only stayed for one night after my graduation so I could go out with friends, the guy was very helpful, comfy beds. Can't say I'd want to go on holiday to Carlisle but if I did I'd stay here


I thought it was in a good location but if I were to come again, I would have to give some thought to the parking. As it is aimed at back packers I think this would not be a problem for most guests and I was only using it as a place to rest for the night before going on to the South of Scotland.

Offer of luggage storage would be helpful. water wastage provide plugs in the bath and sinks! We should be past the days of soiled hand towels and tea cloths - that's the responsibility of management to ensure hygiene.

Luggage storage is offered to all guests. Hand towels and tea towels are changed at least twice a day. The hostel is kept very clean and tidy, as all previous reviews state. Thank you for you review. Jono.
