Hostel is amazing certainly stay if in Carlisle!! Although Carlisle itself isn't number 1 for tourists it's still a nice city!


Best hostel I've stayed in so far. The owners are super.


Best hostel I have stayed at so far. The staff are super helpful, the atmosphere was very relaxed and I got to meet a lot of people. Room was great. The only downside was the beds were really noisy. Otherwise if you make your way to Carlisle this is a great place to stay.


Nice hostel close to everything. Great staff, clean rooms and toilets, fast internet connection. Thanks


This place is amazing, and the young couple who own and run the place are great. Very helpful and know how a hostel should be!

We enjoy stay in your hostel. Very nice hostel in excelent place. Only hooks for jackets we mised. Thanks.


A lovely homely hostel in the prettiest street in central Carlisle. It was clean, well ordered and welcoming to muddy smelly walkers. Jono & Cath were really friendly and helpful, giving good recommendations. We will stay here again when we next pass through.

The city and hostel is very very quiet, the receptionist is very pretty and amicable, when I cook in the kitchen, I use some unlabled tomato soup and ham, later in the journey, I suddenly think that maybe others' private, I am very very sorry for that, please forgive me.


A great place in the center of the town. Very clean!


I really enjoyed my stay in Carlisle. There weren't many guests while I was there, so things were pretty quiet. I still had plenty of lovely conversations with the other hostel goers - good atmosphere. Everything was very clean and had a "new" feeling - beds were also super comfortable. Free coffee, tea, sugar, and milk was a nice perk. Friendly people run the place, and in a very convenient location. Would stay again!


Very good individual hostel. Cathy and Jona are the best.


Surprising Jon and Cath have only opened the place a last year - got the impressoin they'd been running it for years!


Best hostel stay in 2months. Kitchen facilities are great, bedroom very clean and warm, bathroom spotless. staff were absolutely wonderful, would recommend this hostel to anybody. keep up the great work johno and cat
